Paradise Update

Well that settles that, one week vacation and I am back to work next week. Job is taking me as far north as Darwin in the Northern Territory. I always seem to do this, never miss a paycheck – do I know how to work it or do I know how to work it ;). Rydges Darwin Airport hotel & Resort, three months ago I sent my resume and skyped but that was too soon to guarantee me a job so when I got to Australia I contacted my hotel connections. Had to send a nice email declining my job at the Crowne Plaza, even though I don’t think I got the job because they said they would call me by Friday and its Friday and no phone call from them, the only hotel that called me was the outrigger which was once the Holiday Inn here on Surfers Paradise. But I already have a job in Darwin. It includes staff accommodation, so that will be an experience in itself, staying in staff accommodation. Oh I am so excited,  this will do wonders for my hospitality career.

The past week I hugged a Koala Bear at the Australian zoo, saw surfers paradise from sky point, went on the aqua duck in and around surfers paradise, sea world, movie world and partied with Plan B and Wicked Club Crawls meeting such nice guys and some cute ones too. 😉 I am learning how to surf tomorrow (Saturday, June 1) another item checked off on my bucket list – at this rate I am going to have the majority of my list checked off and will have to add new things to the list.

Might reinstate my transfer to the airport for Wednesday morning, I don’t know I was going to go Monday and take the bus and train and do some couchsurfing. Moved hostels tonight and this one is much better than the islanders backpackers resort/hotel. surf n sun is a hostel, more people hanging out and less likely to feel lonely because there are always people around.
