As a tourism student and as someone who left their home country for education, I’ve become somewhat of an ambassador for going places to fulfill your dreams. When I was at my second year of uni I decided to go and spend my summer working abroad. I’m a bit of a stubborn head when it comes to sorting things in my life – I really don’t like when people do things for me – be it a weekly food shop or organising my career. This means I didn’t apply for those summer jobs that you get offered at uni career centre. Instead I took a map of Europe (I’m not THAT adventurous to go & work in Australia), closed my eyes and stuck my finger into the sheer wilderness. BOOM – Greek Islands! Next I googled as many hotels on Greek Islands I possibly could and sent them my CV and cover letter via e-mail. I was incredibly lucky – I got a reply. From a little hotel in Rhodes. So I packed my suitcase, got on a plane and landed (literally) a job as a receptionist for summer 2009.
The best summer of my life, no word of a lie.
