Another amazing season has come to an end... I flew to Rhodes with not so many high hopes since Rhodes wasn't even on the list of places I applied to. Funny story how I managed to get Rhodes.
So flashback to Sicily when me and Oscar were slayin it, and the thought of another season without each other was unbearable. So in this company, you can apply for destinations together with friends or your boyfriend/girlfriend. Me and oscar was like... HELL YEAH! So we went in to apply, and there was this one box that said something like: "If in a relationship, state the name of the person you wish to apply with". And since we didn't find another box for friends we just assumed this was the same one so there we put each others name. We chose completely different destinations (which no one told us we couldn't do...) And then pressed apply.
Same day my manager calls me and says "Are you and Oscar a couple?" Im like, "eehhh no, he's gay, you know that" she's like "well you guys just applied as a couple" I looked at Oscar and said, Oscar we have to get married now. If that's what it takes for us to end up in the same place.
But after that we both got our placements, I was going to Gran Canaria for winter, and he was going to Mexico (no, not at all jealous), and then we both got Rhodes for the summer. So TUI had really tried to get us something together but it must have been hard for them since we chose completely different.
So I thought, okay Oscar, one season and then we will be reunited again.
But unfortunately things change and Oscar decided to ditch me and left TUI before even making it to Rhodes (I'm still sad about it Oscar....). And so there I was, on the plane to Rhodes with no hopes, but then I met Jasmin. Thank god for that!
And now, 6 months later, I wouldn't have wished for any other destination or team. It has been absolutely ah-mazing.
After each season I always think the same, "how am I gonna make new friends like these I have met here? It's not gonna be the same. It's probably not gonna be as fun." And to my surprise, you always manage to meet new people who keeps bringing so much to your life. This is a huge part of why I love working as a guide, because of all the different personalities you meet, and friends you make.
You meet these people that you probably would never have hung out with at home and these people then turn out to be people you feel like "oh my looord where have you been all my life??" And this is basically how I feel about my squad I have had in Rhodes. Each and everyone of you have given me so much joy and laughter and made my memory of Rhodes an amazing one.
And a special shout out to Jasmin, Alana, Sophie, Katariina, Mia, Magnus & Nick for suffering through my forced friendship on a daily basis ;). It has been a pleasure for me and I hope it's been for you guys as well! <3
