Where I stayed
Well, now I am just like all of you reading this blog. I have a job. I have to get up every morning and do actual work, just like you. I must be responsible for stuff and in general, work hard to earn my wages just like you. I have to check e-mail, follow a budget, manage expense reports, and type things into Excel spreadsheets just like you. It is a full time commitment and I now have to work all year round...just like you. At first, this sounds rather depressing. But the administrative tasks associated with this particular job thingy is just a part of what I have to do everyday. I am now a Tour Leader in Central America for the number one Adventure Tour Operator in the world, G.A.P. Adventures.... The "Great Adventure People"
In San Jose, Costa Rica, I learned a bunch of office and computer stuff and got to meet the visionary CEO of the company. Next up, a training trip with 4 other new trainees up to Guatemala...
