I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to write for my last blog. I was unsure of what I wanted to leave with. After doing a lot of thinking, I made the decision that I wanted to be my last post on l’Écho du Rail to be about my experience at Du Reél au Miniature and what a fantastic time I’ve had. This summer was full of memorable experiences and I thought that writing about them would make a wonderful last blog post.
My coworker, Michelle, is just as fantastic as my bosses are. We had a lot of fun over the summer and we got quite close. Michelle, who had worked here last summer as well, showed me around and I was, and still am, very thankful for her help. She made my summer a fantastic summer, and I will definitely miss going to play checkers with her when it was not busy.
Another visit I had was a family of four of which all members were above fifty years old. I believed that they were all siblings, however during the visit I discovered that one of them was actually their mother! We had so much fun during our visit. We laughed a lot and really enjoyed ourselves. It was one of my favourite visits (although I have many favourites).
Another thing I love about working here is the history aspect. I am very passionate about history and that is one of the things that attracted me the most towards working here—getting to see pieces of history, learning about them and getting to explain them to people.
I had a wonderful time this summer and a major part of it was due to my experience here. It was better than I ever could have anticipated. I got to work with kind, funny, caring people who welcomed me immediately. I was able to work with people that I do not simply think of as the people I worked with, but that I think of as a family. Du Réel au Miniature is one of a kind. Thank you for the incredible summer.
