(義大利 Arte Hotel實習生 會研所 林同學)

TIP海外實習計畫在大學時候就聽別人說過幾次,當初並沒有產生太大興趣,進了研究所後,聽聞學姊是為了參加這個計畫才念研究所,當初只是覺得她好有想法,卻仍然沒有想要深入了解。直到聽了好幾次的企業經營典範演講,覺得生活需要多一些挑戰,不想繼續過自己既定好的生活模式,想要勇敢踏出舒適圈,那時候才有了參加這個計畫的想法。準備了報名資料也面試了,那一陣子生活就這麼一如往常地過著,直到要出發前的一個禮拜,我開始好擔心好擔心,擔心自己英文不夠好、義大利文完全是0,擔心工作上無法和同事溝通,擔心「即刻救援」的劇情會發生在自己身上,尤其出國前又有一堆空難事件頻傳,擔心飛機無法順利將我載到義大利。懷抱著種種緊張與不安,我只好一直說服自己這趟旅程就像是跟朋友出國旅行,這五個月很快就過完,來安撫自己的情緒,殊不知現在回想起來才驚覺這五個月真的太短又過得太快,還有好多還沒看過的風景、還沒品嘗過的美食、還沒體驗過的經歷,這一切的一切都讓我想繼續留在那裏,至少再給我五個月,讓我把所有遺憾都填補了吧!

剛到那裏覺得一切都好不方便,時常誤點的大眾交通工具、動作慢吞吞的行政人員,生活步調一下子變得好慢好不習慣,儘管如此所有事物都好新鮮、充滿驚奇,稍加留意就可以發現許多小確幸,生活變得好有趣。剛開始花錢都會再把它換算成台幣,心裡想著好貴好貴買不下手,現在回國後都換算成歐元,一切都變得好便宜,價值觀完全扭曲了啊!

    在Arte Hotel工作,雖然不像其他同學在其他公司有明顯的目標任務或產出,雖然學到的不是如何聯絡供應商、分析競爭者,但我獲得的不比其他同學少,我學到旅館的營運流程,和同事聊天的過程中了解了很多義大利的大小事,我比其他同學有更多和義大利人相處的機會。儘管我回到台灣了,我還是有許多同事的FB和e-mail,我們持續有在保持聯絡,相信不久後的將來我們一定還會再見面的!

相較於出國前的猶豫不決,後悔怎麼是去義大利而不是去美國或英國…等可以順便練習英文的國家,到現在深信自己做了正確的選擇並且充滿感激。義大利雖然不是強國卻是個深具歷史與浪漫的國家,米蘭、羅馬、佛羅倫斯、威尼斯、拿坡里、梵諦岡,再也找不到集這麼多著名城市於一身的國家,而且還可以用聖誕連假環遊歐洲。歐洲真的很浪漫,有許多特色建築、美食和文化,我和朋友用最少的錢玩了最多國家,在義大利生活了4個多月,嘗盡了所有美食、文化與人情;逛了最美的捷克布拉格廣場,在那裡度過了歐洲最重要的聖誕節慶;吃了著名的德國豬腳,體會了在負5度的暴風雪下手腳快截肢的困境;在荷蘭騎腳踏車逛阿姆斯特丹,觀賞了人生中最美的地平線煙火秀;在法國吃了人生中第一個馬卡龍,在浩瀚的凡爾賽宮及羅浮宮中迷路;在英國的炸魚餐中知道了美食沙漠果真名不虛傳,還好泰晤士河畔的美麗景色填補了內心的空洞。累積了許多回憶,不只我,連家人、鄰居都覺得這趟旅程很值得也很划算。這五個月回想起來不是太長,它不足以讓你成為一個真正的義大利人,但這五個月又不是太短,它足以改變你的人生。

The TIP overseas internship program, I have heard a few times when I’m in college. I didn’t have much interest on it. After I go into the Institute, I heard that one of the seniors be in graduate school in order to participate in this program. I had just felt that she is very brave, but I still didn’t want to know more about it. After listening to the speech of the business model for several times, I feel life needs a little more challenging. I don’t want to continue to live the life which I planned before, I want to take a step out of my comfort zone bravely. Then I have the idea of ​​participating in this program. After the application and the interview, life is to as usual. Until a week before departure, I began to worry about everything. I worried about my English and my Italian. I was afraid that I can’t communicate with the colleagues during I work. I worried that the story of the movie "Taken" will happen to me. Especially before going abroad, there are a lot of air accident. I fear of the aircraft can not take me to Italy successfully. Embrace all kinds of tension and anxiety, I had to convince myself that this journey just like to travel abroad with friends, which will finish soon. Unexpectedly, this five months is really too short and pass too fast. There are many scenery I haven’t seen, many food I haven’t taste, many experience I haven’t have, it all makes me want to continue to stay there. At least give me five months more, so I can fill it all!

When I just arrived there, I felt everything was so inconvenient. The public transportation always delays. The administrative staffs work slowly. The pace of life suddenly becomes slow. In spite of that, everything is fresh and full of surprises. A little more attention can make me discover a lot. Life was full of fun. In the beginning, before I spent the money, I transform the price into NT, thinking it was too expensive to let me buy it. And now I converted the price into Euros. Everything becomes so cheap. My value system totally changed!

    Working at Arte Hotel, although unlike the other students in other companies have obvious target task or output, though I don’t learn how to contact the supplier and competitor analysis, I don’t obtain less than them. I learned the hotel operational processes, and during chatting with my colleagues, I learned a lot about everything of Italy. I have more opportunity to stay with Italian people. Although I went back to Taiwan, I still have a lot of colleagues’ FB and e-mail. We keep in contact. I believe that in the future we will meet again!

Compared the hesitant before I leave, I regret why Italy rather than go to the United States or the United Kingdom ... and other countries where I can practice English. And now I believe that I made the right choice and feel grateful of that. Although Italy is not an economic great power, it has a lot of history and is a romantic country. Milan, Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Vatican, you can never find another country has so many famous cities. And You can also travel around Europe during the Christmas vacation. Europe is really romantic. There are many distinctive buildings, cuisine and culture. My friends and I used the less of money traveled the most of countries. Living in Italy more than four months, tasted all the food, culture and human warmth; visiting the most beautiful Prague Square of Czech Republic, where I spent my Christmas the most important celebration in Europe; eating a famous German pig knuckle, pass through the negative 5 degrees of the blizzard which almost made my hands and feet amputated; visiting Amsterdam in the Netherlands by riding a bicycle, watch the most beautiful horizon-fireworks in my life; in France, I ate the first macaron of my life, and get lost in the Palace of Versailles and the Louvre; After eating the fried fish of Britain, I finally know why Britain is called the deserts of food, fortunately, the beautiful Thames scenery fill my inner void. I accumulated a lot of memories. Not only me, even family members and neighbors feel this trip is very worthwhile and very cost-effective. This five-month is not too long, it’s not enough to make you become an Italian. But this five-month is not too short, it’s enough to change your life.
