“I guarantee you won’t be bored”

Barcelona is an awesome city. When you’re in Barcelona, I guarantee you won’t be bored, ever. There’s something to do every day. Next to this, the city has a really pleasant climate and even in November it’s possible to walk around in just a T-shirt. Myself, I’m a big football fan, so it was awesome to visit an FC Barcelona match!

The internship

The internship was super fun. I learned lots on the industry, which promises many good things for the future! In addition, my colleagues, many other interns, were really nice and I met a tonne of new people.

City of football

I’ve experienced so much and saw so many new things. For instance, we went to the highest point in Barcelona, Tibidabo, and I saw all the tourist spots in Barcelona. But if I have to choose one thing, it’s the Barça – Bayern Leverkussen match in the Champions League. I’ve been playing football my whole life and so it was amazing to hear the Champions League Anthem in Camp Nou. Unforgettable!

Tips for other students

Begin in time and prioritize. But my most important tip: enjoy yourself! You’re in a world city and can do and see things you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

What grade would you give your internship experience?

10/10 – without a doubt!
