You might ask: “Hey, isn’t that guy’s internship over already?” Yes and it took me a while to fully realize that, arrive back home and gain some speed again. I am now working on my Master’s degree again and also enjoy the advantages of my student life. So why am I writing? On my last days in Sydney I shot some videos for Fresenius to make a short video résumé of my internship and of course I have to share that completed clip with you now. Continue Reading →
This was it. After three weeks of traveling I finally arrived in my home town again where I started my little adventure nearly four months ago. I could tell endless stories about my round trip through Australia and New Zealand now (nearly 30.000 km and 9 flights in 3 weeks) but first things first. My last days in Sydney before my travels have been quite dense doing all the farewells, trip planning, packing and finishing my projects for my internship. Continue Reading →
The city does its best to give me the best last impressions of it. I spent a great afternoon walking through the city and up on one of the piles of the Harbour Bridge. Time to share some more photos from the city that showed me how fast you can build up a life somewhere far far away from home.
My perception of marketing tells me that at first there is a problem and a need to solve it. When it comes to marketing, we try to find out, how to solve the problem in a way no one else does: faster, cheaper or simply connected to a strong brand. When it comes to marketing communications it is more about telling people where the real problem is and how you will solve this problem in a better way someone else does. This works fine with consumer goods everyone is buying but it quickly gets difficult when the people’s lives you are talking to is completely different from yours. Continue Reading →
I planned to have a little sightseeing tour at Sydney Harbour last Sunday. That I would get up at 5:30 and do the tour in 36:46min instead was rather a spontaneous idea when I saw a booth of the 10 kilometers Sydney Harbour Run on Saturday afternoon.
Tuesday morning I got a message from a friend saying: “Germany got through to quarter finals. Ye play your old buddies France next!” This is how I found out about Germany won against Algeria in the World Cup. No big public party or public gatherings to watch the games and no car parade in the streets of Sydney, this is how I experienced the world cup so far. Continue Reading →
I had to wait a little while until Google confirmed the upload but I also wanted to share the 360° shot of the beach I have been during my camping “weekend”. From the initial 12 people that wanted to join us four of us finally drove north to the camping site of Treachery Beach. The reason so many people backed down was the weather forecast, which was really bad for this weekend. Still it was a great trip and the couple that invited me and I had a good time.

Oh time flies my friends – is it really a month in Sydney already? There is a lot that I have done already but somehow I feel like my time in Australia will be over much sooner than I thought. Time to look at what I am spending most of the time with in Sydney: Projects at Fresenius Medical Care. Continue Reading →
Coming from Germany, I am convinced that being unfriendly is one of the core competencies a bus driver has to have when applying for a job in public transportation, but not so in Sydney. I have an assumption already why that is the case, but first I want to say thank you to all the readers of this blog. I really enjoy writing here and am glad to get such a positive feedback on various channels.
Actually I did the trip last weekend already but I did not have the time to look through the photos until today. During my interview with Fresenius, that I did the day before I left for Sydney, I said that I wanted to see a Kangaroo when I am in Australia. I was a bit tired from the house warming the night before but after a short sleep during the bus ride to Blacktown I was excited to see some of these animals for the very first time.
