As some of you know, I'm a student for business and tourism and I'm working at a travel agency. Some travel operators offer certain business trips for people like me where we're visiting hotels in another country. So I had the chance to go to Fuerteventura for free!
My trip started at 24th June. I left work at 4pm to start my over night train ride to Düsseldorf airport. I could hardly sleep at the train, but I arrived at the airport at 6 am in the morning, so I've looked for a bench to continue sleeping for four hours.
The group was super nice, and we got along very well. This was awesome because I'm really afraid of strangers I have to stay with almost a week. Our guide was super friendly too, so I enjoyed being with them.
During the trip we were staying at two hotels, Elba Sara Beach & Golf Resort in Playa Castillo and at SBH Taro Beach Resort in Costa Calma. I personally liked the first hotel better.
We were staying there on an all inclusive basis.
Our job was to visit other hotels, look at the rooms noting down information and testing the buffets, haha. The greatest part was eating at the different hotels. But I really liked to experience the culture of the people there. It was super interesting, especially for my job because how should I sell a hotel when I've never been there? That's why I want to go on such business trip again!
I'd like to show you some photos of the hotels and the places I've been. And if you're interested in going there, just contact me, haha. :D
The left two seats were mine on the over-night train ride from Dresden to Dortmund (I had to change in Dortmund)
The beach from Playa Castillo/Caleta de Fuste:
Here's en example for a buffet. The hotel was Barcelo Thalasso Spa. My favorite buffet ever! *o*
... and this wasn't even everything, haha. :D
The famous dunes of Corralejo
Awesome view from the bus when we were going to our second hotel in the south of Fuerteventura:
The beach at our second hotel:
We also visited a zoo, called Oasis Park!
And this is the most beautiful beach at the whole island! Jandía Playa!
The last hotel we visited had a small lagoon! So nice!
I hope you liked the photos. It's difficult to decide which photos I should post. >< And in the end I feel like not taking enough photos, haha. :D
See you soon,
