INTERPOL. 2017. MADRID.

22 Jun

ON THE DOT and even earlier. There I was at the door of the place where I would meet with the agency. From Monday to Friday. Pretty much… 40 hours together. Old booths; vintage with beautiful languages; Arabic, English, French and Spanish.Official languages of INTERPOL. AND within the Arabic language: the African and the Arabian Peninsula. And one inspector based in France and 3 Spanish inspectors based in Madrid. A very young attractive and blonde traveller police inspector.

I Remember having enjoyed everything very much even the intense debriefing since, at this actual point,  it has helped me to reflect on important things to improve.

In my view, in the Interpreting World, personal or, even better, in a well-defined-team, “debriefing” is as “progress” as “after the sun comes the son.”

So, after I studied a bit of simultaneous interpreting at the Monterey Institute of International​ studies in California, I decided to keep traveling […]

Almost 10 years later…

I am working in Spain as a conference interpreter. Coincidentally, my years of wanderlusting have been my years of agnosticism. But, I wanted to turn that tide and be a believer. Now, I believe in God, although I do not care about the denomination. Culturally, I am Catholic.

Anyhow, my first time in a real interpretation meeting. Below pictures of that first, second, third, fourth…

I am new to this and it is not easy but I looooove. As the motto of my boyfriend’s military unit (Airborne paratrooper) goes: “If it were easy, others would do it.”
