Next Stop: Turkish Riviera

During my stay in Barcelona I had planned my next trip. I arranged an internship at a German newspaper in Alanya, which is on the Southern Coast of Turkey. After one week at home, I started travelling again.
I stayed at my Aunt’s house in Turkey and wrote articles about Turkish topics, in German.
 After one week I already knew that this wasn’t the right internship for me. I tried to get an internship at a Turkish newspaper and TV broadcaster to get to know the Turkish way of working. I took Turkish lessons and a woman helped me get an internship at the newspaper “Alanya Postasi”. 
After four weeks writing articles in Turkish I switched to the TV Kanal A and worked there as reporter, interviewing tourists in their language.
My languages had been a big advantage.
I enjoyed the work because I love talking with international people and speaking in front of the camera. 2.5 months had gone so quickly, and in January 2009 I went back to Frankfurt, Germany.
