Blog Entry Day 1

Diary Number: 1

Date: 12/11/2018

Daily Summary

Induction day with visit to work placement, Hotel Carlos V, in Granada, meeting manager and staff. Confirmed work hours, dress code, etc. and given outline of our duties.

Later in the day, went on a walking tour of the city, passing lots of areas of interest, historic buildings & churches, ethnic markets and shopping areas.

Learning & Positive Aspects of the Day

Gained a good understanding of what was expected of me on the placement.

Familiarised with the layout of the city so could confidently walk to work within 10 minutes.

Challenges Encountered

Difficult to understand spoken language.

Initially, all streets seemed very similar so tended to walk in the wrong direction.


Enjoyed the challenge.


Learned a lot about the local area.
