Happy Monday!



Good morning earlybirds, 

Rise and shine, yet a new week of work and other fun has begun!
At the beginning of our traineeship, we were not totally convinced yet, as Sara and Christos told us, that time would fly by in Luxembourg. But here we are, this is already the last day of our first month (at least, for the majority of us)! Enjoy your week to the fullest!

Have a wonderful, satisfying day,

The Communication SC

rocas Tonight: happy hour @ Rocas (Place des Bains, 6pm)

Why don’t you switch off your lights for an hour, no matter where you will be on Saturday, 29 March between 20:30 and 21:30.

Volare in Luxemburg, what’s in a name?

Some of you might be wondering where the name of this blog comes from. Here’s the story: on March 20, DGT had their annual “DGT get together party”, where every language department set up a table with delicious food from their countries. The DGT trainees had a table of their own, the now famous Trainees’ Sweet Corner, filled with cakes and other sweets from all over Europe, home-made by some of our lovely volunteer-bakers.


But this wasn’t¬†the only initiative of the DGT trainees: Stefania proposed to perform a song during the party, and that song was…indeed, Volare! Image

Now, EC trainees, spread your wings and fly into the exciting trainee life of Luxemburg!
