(義大利 Wibee 實習生 蘇同學)

IMG_7242當我開始喜愛攝影,我開始欣賞那些在旅行中充滿熱情笑容的旅人、和那些歷經不同文化洗禮所呈現出來另一個的樣子,我想這種形式的改變不是只待在我們習慣的舒適圈裡就能產生的。於是我開始尋找可以成行的辦法,令我眼睛為之一亮的是TIP的這個計畫,一個有別於交換學生只是單單在國外的學校裡讀書,TIP結合了企業實習和專業的課程,且長達五個月的時間更能讓我們深入的體驗當地文化;而這樣的機會也讓我有不一樣的收穫和成長。

我的實習公司Wibee是一間網路通訊公司,和同是計畫裡的一間綠建築顧問公司Pro-E為合作夥伴,因此我們都在同一個辦公室裡一起工作。第一天上班時,公司的同事就開車載我們一起去上班,熱心的同事不僅答應我們每天接送我們上下班,並不停地強調如果我們有任何需要幫忙的地方都可以告訴他,也在周末閒暇時邀請我們到他家享受正統的義式料理、帶我們體驗當地的生活,讓身處異鄉的我們感到非常溫馨。

而我的工作皆是由Skype和遠在倫敦的Paolo Taticchi教授討論,這五個月的任務是完成公司的一個關於行動學習(Mobile learning)的Business Plan,對於虛擬學習市場作一個深度的市場調查,並決定是否進入這市場開發相關學習平台;Paolo很有規律地追蹤我的工作進度,並適當的給予新的任務,他總是很有耐心的講解工作內容,也在每次任務結束不吝嗇的讚賞,我想這就是西方文化最棒的地方吧! 雖然總是和辦公室裡的人看似不相關,但我們仍每天一起共度午餐時光、並交流彼此的文化,但直到現在我還是無法習慣他們那過度簡單的飲食文化-瑪格麗特比薩、紅醬義大利麵、夾著生火腿的麵包,在我的映象裡,他們的生活很規律、吃著大致一樣的食物、每天餐後來杯espresso,一成不變到令人覺得乏味,和台灣人餐餐都要開火、吃熱食的生活有很大的差異,但這對我來說是個難得的生活體驗。

五個月裡我也運用工作閒暇時踏遍歐洲幾大城市、看盡了美景、享受奢華的自由。登上了瑞士少女峰、體驗Grindelwald的田野生活,到了倫敦、巴黎一探時尚浪漫之都,漫步在比利時布魯日的中古世紀小城鎮裡、嘗嘗道地的比利時啤酒,也在思想奔放的荷蘭感受不同的風情,更在聖誕假期時耗上一個禮拜享受巴塞隆納的熱情與高第建築;當然,我也從義大利南邊的阿瑪菲海岸以及卡布里小島沿路遊到北邊的威尼斯,從最美的海岸線到古羅馬建築、威尼斯水都和彩色島,不同的地理風貌以及歷史文化讓我一遊未盡、難以忘懷。
文字方塊:  悠閒的中古世紀小鎮-布魯日第一次有這樣長時間旅遊和在異鄉生活的體驗,有很多不同的感受,對於每個國家也有不同的想法;從平日的團體生活到一個人的自助旅行以及尋找適合的旅伴,都是不一樣的學習,對於歐洲的治安仍然感到訝異以及惶恐,但不可否認的是那充滿歷史的味道以及壯麗的自然景觀讓我不得不去冒險。在旅行中所學習到的遠過於那坐在教室中二十年的記憶,不管是在視覺以及心靈上的衝擊,都讓我成長、更茁壯,也讓我學習到「秉持著正面樂觀的態度就能讓每個難關順利度過」,生活在異鄉,並在不同的城市探索和旅行,在這當中難免遇到些狀況又或者被當作外來民族指指點點和取笑,學習如何忽視、接受、轉念;看著擦身而過、背著大包包的背包客,不禁佩服她/他們的精神,如果還有機會,希望我能在每次的旅行中認識更多的朋友,從他們的故事裡看見更不一樣的世界。

回憶起這半年的收穫、挫折、以及轉變,給了我一個夢想啟程的開始,讓我不再是呆坐在家裡幻想著,而是鼓起勇氣去實踐;我相信現在所做的每一個改變,都是為了遇見更好的自己。

 

To leave the place we used to live. It was exciting, challenging, a little scare, and expected! I participated in TIP program, it’s different from other exchange student. We had internship in the company, and also had specialized seminars.

My internship company is Wibee, a communication network company which experience in different areas such as ICT, civil, industrial and management engineering. I was working with their cooperative company- Pro-E. In addition, I had a thoughtful colleague, he not only took us to the office every day, but also cared us as a family. He cooked traditional Italian food for us in the weekend, took us to joined their real life when we were free. How lucky we are! That was a unforgettable memory in this five months.

I was different from other students, because I just can use Skype to contact my tutor-Paolo Taticchi. In this five months, I asked for write a business plan which talking about mobile learning (M-learning). I needed to do detailed market research, and collected lots of information. In the final, I had to make a decision: “Does it make sense to develop iPad software similar to virtual learning environment including mobile apps feature?” It was not easy for me to read whole article in English, and to write 20 pages business plan. But Paolo always encouraged me when I sent him reports every time. We discussed twice a week, step by step to finish the business plan. In Wibee, being here is not just responsible for works, also makes me have different experience such as culture exchange. I shared something special in our country, or different between us. And I cooked Taiwanese food for them! I’m glad with the company members in a good relationship and also thanks my tutor Paolo and Francesco for supporting me a lot, thanks my friend/colleague Cristiano let me had the best experience in Perugia.

In addition to work experience, I also arrange the trips in some famous cities around Europe. I went to top of Europe in Switzerland, to enjoy the country life in Grindelwald; Visiting fashion, romantic cities- London and Paris; Taking a leisurely walk around Bruges, and tasted the fresh Belgium beer! And the most fantastic experience was I spend whole week in Barcelona when the Christmas vacation. I met some friends in the hostel, we celebrated together, went to the beach, ate sea food, share our life, and I also really enjoy the building which design by Gaudi! Certainly, I traveled from south of Italy- Amalfi, Capri to Roma, Firenze, and north place- Venice. I was really impressed by those history, amazing natural landscape, and people in different countries.

This is my first time traveled in Europe, stayed in different country for half year, and also had my first job. I improve a lot, and learning by different way. Include three parts: the first is internship, I never have job before. So I enjoy my job and have responsible to do my best, to finish the project independent; Second is make life special in Italy, try everything new and share with people; and the most important is Travel. Travel makes me met friends from other countries, communicated with people who can’t understand English, introduced Taiwan to foreigners. When faced something difficulties think in positive way, and clam down to solve the situations no matter good or bad. Those were not teach us in the classroom in past 20 years.

I’m glad to have this opportunities to open my mind, to have these precious experience let me understand many things. I believe that any thing I do now, will make me better!
