Back Home

I took my flight from Rhodes on Friday, Oct-26; with a quick stop at Thessaloniki. From there to München. But I had to wait until the morning to take my last flight – back to Amsterdam.

München…well I just saw the airport. And through the windows, I could see the weather :  clouds all the way down to the tarmac. Oh yeah…perfect. That morning when I left from Rhodes, I was drinkin’ frappé with vodka in my shorts (no shirt). Now it was just clouds everywhere and around 7°C. In the papers, it said it wasn’t only going to rain the next day. There was also going to be snow and 3°C. I drank German beer with an Italian guy who’s flight was delayed 6hrs. That was nice. Can’t remember if he wrote down his Facebook or not haha ! (Should be in my agenda, if he has.)

The flight from München to Amsterdam was with the smallest plane I’ve ever been in :  2 seats, isle, 2 seats. We made some really tight corners with that thing. Cool !

So now I’m back here. Cold. All kinds of sh*t you have to deal with, family issues and what not. I can’t wait to go to Gran Canaria. Back in the sunshine haha ! You should check the difference in weather forecasts between Amsterdam and Gran Canaria haha ! And this is the first job I’ve ever thought :  “can’t wait to start !” Have you ever had that ?

Next time, I think I will just go from Gran Canaria straight to Rhodes in April. Saves me the hastle I’m dealing with now. Next season on Rhodes should be better as well. We get a pimped up sales deck. We probably get more screens there too. We will most likely have a better offer to sell. I’ll see next year !

Keeping it short =9


Working on Rhodes

Been a while since I last wrote on here ! I have been busy working Mon-Sat since April 16th. Well I got here on the 15th and started my training on the 16th. Started doing the actual job on the 23rd. I have never done a Sales job and I have never worked in tourism before. Now I am doing both haha !

Yesterday, we had a big party for the whole company. It was held at the Amathus in Ixia (Rhodes, Greece), which is 5 stars. Food, champagne…good stuff ! The best people from every department were awarded and appearantly I was the best Dutch Rep. I did not expect it, to be honest.

After the party, I went to Colorado for a little while. There is always a band playing on Saturdays and they are good. I went to the shots bar nearby before going back home. Damn I was drunk haha !

When I decided I wanted to get up this morning, it was a bit later than I expected haha ! It was about 14h30. I have only been taking a shower, checking the internet and drinking orange juice so far. And I should think about what I should do for dinner. I was thinking pizza. I have no plans to meet up with anyone, so sitting in a restaurant is not really the nicest plan. Perhaps the Art & Kitchen for pizza (can take away and eat half of it on the way home). Otherwise maybe one or two pita gyros (chicken, no fries, with hot sauce). That place is almost next door…but what is the name again ?

When I woke up, I thought to go for a swim. But now that it’s 18h09, I guess I can skip that. One more cigarette, one more episode (I think Robot Chicken) and then it should be time to go out for some food. Right ? 19h00-ish is a good time for breakfast ?

I will try to find some time to write more often. Catch you later.
