Hi everybody! Im currently doing the last week of my practical training in beautiful island of Crete with my classmate and also my best friend! We are living in the city of Heraklion which is same size as Tampere. Only one week left from three months training here. In these three months i have been working in the nursing home and in the hospital. I have comleted homecare and surgigal practises. I have learn what is working like with foreign language and how you can work with people that you dont have common language with. Sometimes it has feel like im not going to learn anything here because its kind of Greek style that people are not doing o much and everything happens really slowly. But afterwards i have realized that i have learned so many things. For example at first i was quite shocked about the aseptic working here because they dont pay much attention for it but then i realized that when i see that somebody is doing something wrong and differently from what Im used to in Finland I will remember how things have been taught in school and I will pay more attention that I do things right. And i think that it is really richness to see different kind of ways in working. And i have to admit that even when we sometimes in Finland are complaining about working conditions and lack of time in working we still have the best healthcare system and possibilitys to good working.
We also have had lot of free time between works and by far we have experienced so much and amazing things that it is almost impossible to write everything here, but I will try my best! For example we have visited Athens, Agios Nicholaos , island of Spinalonga, palace on Knossos and Mykene. We have also enjoyed the beautifull nature and sunny and warm weather.
Three months have gone really fast and i cant believe that soon Im coming home. These have definitely been the best three months in my life and Im going to miss this so much!
