The motivation

I wanted to gain an experience which I could possibly never have gained. I
wanted to gain more knowledge on how things are different in another country and the way that they do things.

I had never travelled anywhere without my family outside of the UK before this placement so it was a whole new experience.

The placement

My work placement was a hotel receptionist in Cosmos hotel. My tasks included checking guests in and out of the hotel and giving them any information they may need. I also dealt with special requests from guests and helped guests with any complaints and problems they had.

The location

The beach was right in front of our hotel, and everything was in walking distance.

My group planned trips out on the weekends so we got to explore more of the island. The host partner gave us discount cards for the bus, so it really didn’t cost much at all.
