How everything started...

A new project, a new chance. Everything went so quickly, that I almost couldnâ€™t believe it. A new project was starting in my company and as they were looking for Spanish speakers HR got in contact with me as well. Purchasing Specialist for Spain didnâ€™t sound bad at all, the work Iâ€™ve been doing so far wasnâ€™t too exiting and I was promised by my team-leader whenever there would be a chance to move further sheâ€™ll let me know. Well, I guess she didnâ€™t mean that I would change to another project, but thatâ€™s how life goes sometimes. The interview with the guys from the new project went better then I could have imagined, instead of letting me know the result within a week as by everybody else I got an answer within 2 hours!!!! I guess my Spanish and German skills (the main languages in the new project) were sufficient as Iâ€™m quite fluent, hehe. They suggested me to take part on a knowledge transfer in Germany and in Spain. 1 week in Hamburg and 3 weeks in Madrid, wow. Sounded just great for me. The only condition was that I had to leave in about 2 weeks, not really a problem for me. What turned out to be difficult for the trainings I should take before the departure while doing my work and the work of my colleague who was on vacation, plus training a new person on my present position whenever he or she could start. Believe me, these were some crazy 2 weeks.
However, I had no idea actually how crazy and stressful on the other hand the actual business trip will be. Then the workload was much and the sleeping hours quite short...too short for me. And instead of recharging my batteries during the weekend I stayed in Spain I did some crazy travellingâ€¦but isnâ€™t that what real travelerâ€™s souls do actually? ;-)
