We are the 29th of May, it is an usual Monday and I woke up without knowing how my day is going to be. I arrived to my internship in Vodafone as every day at 9am, and my tutor told me “today we do not work, we are going to do horse-riding”. Is he serious? What an amazing surprise, I am absolutely a huge fan of horse riding. I practiced this sport since I am 8 years old.
As I am working in the outbound sale department, the team get a target to reach each month. When they reached their target, the boss of the department, who is my tutor, offer a free activity day and this day was horse riding.
We left around midday, a cab was waiting for us in front of the SkyPark Business Center where our office is . He picked me up with all the team and with my colleague Elise (who is an intern from IPAG) and our new colleague Bruno, (who is an intern from Ipag too). He was so lucky for his first day at work. We went to Mellieha in the north, to go in a ranch next to the sea and one of most famous beach in Malta, Golden Bay.
We separated the group in two because of the huge number of people, we are about 20 people. I was in the second group, and I was so looking forward ridding. The guys was really cool, as I told him I was a big fan of equitation, he gave me a really nice horse.
We did the hike during 2hours, we ridded around the mountain along the sea. We enjoyed of the amazing landscapes, and it was my first time in this famous area. It was an outstanding experience, and I will always remember.
This day was giving to me the opportunity to know my colleagues in a personal way and learn more about Maltese people.
It was also a great way to know Bruno, know more Elise who is becoming a big friend and have fun with ours Maltese colleagues. After the horse ride, we went to a restaurant next to Golden bay to celebrate the successful month.
A good lunch in a paradisiac place for a great moment!
I am thankful to my tutor Daniel and my supervisor James for offering me this wonderful day.
