What is the name of your hospitality establishment and what is the best thing about your establishment?
I live and work at the Bamboo Guesthouse in Knysna.
It is a very lovely guesthouse and would dream to stay here as a guest :)
All the people are warm and friendly, so it`s a very nice place for doing an internship! The working hours are long, but when braai it is fun to work there.
You`ll meet many different cultures and find great new friends.
How does South Africa differ from your home country?
The people are more friendly and open minded than in Germany! I always feel free and relax here.
Also the wildlife is very very different. I couldn`t imagne to walk with a cheetah before! How weird is this?:)
And I love hot days and warm water and lovely evenings under a starry sky. Beautiful! In Germany it is cold, windy and the water is always cold!
