Hello new, old, current and potential Les Roches students! My name is Filippa and I will blog on this page for the next twelve months. So, welcome to my little world of words and pictures…
To me, it doesn’t matter where I’ve been or how long I’ve been away, it’s always good to come home. I have just come back from six months in Abu Dhabi where I did my second internship working for a hotel in the sales and marketing department. The city was very different compared to anything I’d seen before and the cultural differences were huge, but the work experience has been great, although the hours were long and I only had one day off per week.
Time flew by as it always does very quickly and I’m now back in Sweden with my family trying to make the most out of my four weeks of Christmas holiday before school starts in Switzerland in January. So far, I’ve unpacked four suitcases full of clothes, cleaned my room, decorated the Christmas tree and baked lot’s of goodies like saffron buns and gingerbread hearts, and decorated oranges with whole cloves – a must for Christmas! I absolutely love this holiday, and this year I’m going all in -no one can stop me!
It is soon time to start my third year at Les Roches. I did the previous semesters at the Marbella campus where I had so much fun and met the coolest people, but this year I felt like it was time to swap the beach for the mountains, and so I decided to transfer to Bluche. I love skiing, although I must admit I’m not the best at it… I haven’t been on the slopes since 2009, so I could definitely use a private lesson or five.
I cannot wait to meet new faces (and old, since there are a few more of us coming from Marbella) and I’m sure we all will have the time of our lives.
Wish I could write more but I’ve got to continue decorating the house. It’s a full time job being a Christmas enthusiast…
If you have any questions or thoughts regarding anything please feel free to post a comment at the bottom of this page and I will do my best to answer. You can also send me a message on facebook.com/filippah or follow me on Twitter @filippamaria.
