Probably the best decision in my life

Hello everyone. I am Niklas and I am a mechanical engineering student from Germany. As a mandatory part of my studies, I am doing an internship for 20 weeks at TBF. It is the first time that I am away from home for more than 2 weeks. Actually, I can say that it was the best decision in my life to go for an internship abroad and especially at TBF!

If you are at the same point as where I was 2 months ago, and do not know where to solve your internship, I can definitely recommend you to do your internship at TBF. I just have to say one thing: which factory has his own f*cking halfpipe inside? I do not know one, do you? It is like a big family; everyone is smiling and loves what he does. Everyone is joking around and if you have a problem, everyone tries to help you. That is the spirit of TBF.

Free your mind, surf when sun goes down!

We go surfing at the beach at least every second day after work. There is a rack at the Memories Bar filled with Sunova and SUNS surfboards, which we can use whenever we want to. That is so cool! Despite the fact that the waves are relatively small at this time of the year, they are still good enough to learn how to surf. However, it feels so good to be out in the warm water and at least to do some paddle exercises. When you sit on your surfboard and see how the sun goes down, it is an unbelievable vibe. You feel extremely free and forget everything around you. I really like this activity the most. 

BANGKOK the city of angels

On this weekend, there was Buddhist holiday on Monday so we flew to Bangkok. After we arrived at our hotel, we went out to grab some food. I was surprised by the fact, that there were so much people outside, dancing and drinking to some good music (it was at 2 am). At the next day, we went to the MBK shopping centre by bus. The bus was very cheap and much cheaper than in Germany. This was a great experience. At night, we went to the Red Sky Bar to get some amazing views over Bangkok. The view was unbelievable and the drinks were very expensive. Actually, we made some good pics tho. On Sunday, we made a tour to the floating market and the train market. It was nice to see but I would not go there again to be honest. Back at our hotel area, we visited some great temples and enjoyed the sunset at the famous Wat Arun. Over all I really liked the versatility of Bangkok. You can do whatever you want to do. Nevertheless, be aware of your valuables because the Tuc Tuc and taxi drivers think you are a walking ATM. Be sure that the taxi driver turns on the taximeter because most of the taxi drivers will tell you a fix price that is much more expensive.
