Work for over a year in Ravensburger, a huge company who produces books, puzzles and board games.
I was involved in different areas: starting the new BRIO shop & café, the shop with BRIO swedish wood toys that Ravensburger has in Spieleland, as a Verkäuferin, selling games and taking care of the little shop and café.
As well I was on Ravensburger bookstore with the whole Ravensburger books, for children and youth. With the very well known WWW books, Wieso? Weshalb? Warum?
Finally on Retail area, around Germany helping on starting the new Ravensburger shops.
My dream was to work at the Ravensburger Verlag, and Herstellung, the book editorial and book manufacturing department. But quite frustrated I quit trying presenting my candidature, as it was not going fluent. And then a spark of wanting to work for a smaller company, more environmental friendly, arised, so I didn’t had any more motivation to keep working for them. I definetly value my strong will to try it, I was quite brave to start this position with my level of german and going far away my friends from Switzerland.
Don’t know if I did my best. But I tryed to follow my vision and that was brave enough. At the end, I kind of fullfilled my dream…. working in Germany, with books and products and while never stop playing.
Evening in Bodensee. I thought I will be visiting very often where I was living in Switzerland while staying in Germany, but at the end I wasn’t visiting switzerland as much as I thought.
Anyway, the view of the Alps from Bodensee, always calmed me down.
In the other side…
In the other side of Bodensee, the Alps…. “immer weiter, Clara… ” Katrien always used to told me.
