Arriving here was a whirl wind of emotions. From anticipation to eagerness to fear and everything in between.
I can however say that it's been an amazing experience. I worked harder than I ever have in my life, there was a fair amount of blood, sweat and tears but I can honestly say that this journey has taught me more about the kind of person that I would like to be.
This sounds slightly cheesy doesn't it? Bear with me, it is probably going to get worse before the end....
I have just recently just moved North, to Rhode Island and the differences between here and Florida are astronomical...for instance, at the moment, we are sitting inside a low lying cloud bank, so just going outside isn't something you really want to do.
It really is so much fun though, meeting other, non-Boca, non-country club people....and I would have never gotten this opportunity if I had not been accepted on the Workaway program. They have opened so many doors for me, introduced me to so many amazing people, some of which I hope to be friends with for a very very long time.
So, i suppose as this is my last blog I would like to thank my managers here at Boca West. Everybody who has read my posts, I hope that you have enjoyed my journey as much as I have. I really hope that if you are reading these posts and are thinking about joining the program, that you definitely give it a try. The work is hard, but fun, you meet amazing people and you get to see another country which is actually pretty cool when you get over the novelty of being in it....
