Diary Number: 1

Daily Summary

Today I had an introduction day for my work placement, at Hotel Carlos V, where I was introduced to the manager and staff. I was given a list of my work hours, dress code and an outline of the duties I would be expected to carry over the two weeks.

At 4 clock we went on a guided tour around Granada city. We then had free time for the rest of the day, where we got to try out some local cuisine.

Learning & Positive Aspects of the Day

The positve aspects were definitely how friendly the manager and staff were to me. I felt relaxed and positive that I that I could  do well here. They were really looking forward to me starting with them and showing me the ropes.

Challenges Encountered

The language barrier will be my biggest challenge. Though I was pleasantly surprised that they spoke slower than I thought they would and I understood more than I thought I would


Overall very pleased with my placement area, and I’m confident I will learn a lot. The Spanish lessons really stood to me today.


The buildings are outstanding, I can’t wait to go sightseeing  I love the detailed ground works. The local cuisine is devine.
