So earlier this year I visited Santorini with my mum, and I’ve been to ios last year. While In santorini I realised I wanted to be in Greece for the summer. I applied for jobs online as a receptionist without knowing I’d actually get the job. Now I’m not going to write names but I got a job at a Hostel in Mykonos, I’ve been aware that it wasn’t going to be easy and indeed I didn’t make it through the whole summer. The reason why I couldn’t handle it wasn’t because of the job but the people I used to work with. Greeks are used to work hard in the summer and then do nothing during winter time. I was working in hospitality meaning I had to be smiling all the time, but it’s really hard when you have your boss screaming at you or giving u shit if you sit down for 5 minutes while you work everyday for 10 hours without a day off.. at least I had the pleasure to experience it and I spent 2 months in the beautiful island. Has any of you worked a season and actually got it through?
It’s not my first time doing this for a trip, i could say i’ve done it more than 5 times for sure and even in less time before departure. Anyways, I’m currently in my hometown with my mum ( we don’t live here but we’ve been here for 2 months while we were on the process of selling our house in which we sold a week ago) and we are staying at a hotel and we were planning to leave in about 3-4 days, so we went down to reception to try to extend our stay but there were no more rooms available from tomorrow. So me and my mum looked at each other and said: ok we’re leaving Italy then. We could have gone to Treviso or Venice but we came to the conclusion that we don’t have any more business in here so why not go to Spain since mum has to go to Colombia very soon and usually flights that go to Colombia have Spain as a stopover. So here i am i just purchased 2 tickets that depart in 15 hours Venice-Barcelona. I’m excited. At the beginning of this month we did the same and went to Santorini. Now Spain, i’ve been when i was little but i don’t remember it so yeah adventure awaits! And when mum goes to Colombia i don’t know what i’ll do but i want to travel Europe for a bit this summer..going with the flow it’s just the best, I don’t criticise those that don’t think alike but all i know is that i keep my life entertaining and i love it for it 🙂
Probably the best place I’ve been too. And i’ve been here only 2 days!
Despite all the awful things that happen in this world, Santorini is a paradise. The views, the food, the wine, the sunsets, and the way Greeks take care of their island by constantly painting the walls and floors to maintain their place tidy and good for the eye. And no mention their cordiality and will to help you out. Greece is not doing well as most Europe and I admire that they treat tourists with respect because they need them, and something that I really admire is that everyone speaks English. Unlike in my country, Italy..they expect you to get to learn Italian, how embarrassing. Well this is to keep enjoying my days in the island and to keep pushing forward the date to leave :p because I really don’t want to at least not yet !
I’m back in my home land afte 10 years, that’s right 10 years!! I’ve been here a week now and I can’t stop crossing paths with people that know my parents and remember me from when I was little and no matter their amazed look on their faces they end up calling me crazy. Why I don’t settle down, go to uni, get a boyfriend .. I’m just fed up, you should just respect other people’s life choices. And last time I checked sorry but life didn’t come with a manual of instructions that you have to follow steps by steps ..lemme be me haters
