half-time!

Hard to believe but half of the time is already over and we gathered so many impressions!

The week of college at Georgia Tech was very interesting: we got to know many new topics and processes which could be very helpful in our future. Even if it was hard sometimes to understand everything we had a lot of fun because of interactive methods which brightened up the week.

Moreover I am at Norton Lilly International for my internship since already 3 weeks. The shipping company in a small office with only 9 employees had a very warm welcome for me, it rules a very nice and funny working atmosphere.

During the first days they showed me all systems and I gained my own accesses so I can work with those by my own in the next weeks. As I helped explaining shipping terms to another new colleague in the accounting department in the first week, I finally got my own tasks in the second week: I prepared the files for the vessels, created new port calls in the system and edited custom documents.

The highlights of the week are always again the visits of the vessels. 3 times I went to the port, through a different and also a little more strict gate control to the vessels. On board we made the incoming or outgoing clearance for the vessels, exchanged documents and answered last questions about the port stay or the next voyage (funfact: one of the captains was German).

Next to all this work we enjoy the beautiful weather, make trips to the nice beaches and to the great cities, watch football games and lots of more. To summarize it: we try to gain a lot of new experiences and to discover and get to know the life of America.

Let’s have 5 more interesting weeks!
