My summer so far!

So far my summer has been very busy! Once university was officially over, I went on holiday to Portugal with my family. It was the best way to finish off my second year at university by sitting by the pool with a book. There were some ups and downs, including days out at the beach, the water park and the inevitable family argument! However, the absolute highlight of my holiday was dolphin watching!

On the day, we went to the harbour and got on a speedboat. My brother’s girlfriend and I ran to the front of the boat, but as we got out to sea we quickly regretted this decision. I have never experienced anything like it, the sea was very choppy and we were literally bouncing on the waves. At this point I would like to note that, there were no seatbelts. Nothing. The only thing keeping me in that boat was my own strength. We finally got used to the vicious waves and we set out to sea in search for the dolphins. We were driving around for ages, when finally we heard on the radio that another boat had located some dolphins. I honestly didn’t think boats could go that fast but it did and then in the distance we could see them! Seeing the dolphins, was exactly how I expected it. We saw a colony of about ten and it was the most beautiful scene I have ever seen and one that I will not forget in a hurry.

Now I am back home, with the holiday blues! We are now in full swing of Clearing and I have recently been offered the role of Senior Clearing Assistant, which I am over the moon about! Even though it has its busy spells throughout the day I am loving being at work and I cannot wait to meet the rest of my team!

Now, you are all up to date! I will call in soon and let you know how it’s all going! Until then!

    It sounds like you had a great holiday. I lived in Australia for 20 years and we'd often see dolphins when we were fishing.Also these huge manta rays would leap right out of the water. They are great memories as is you holiday.

    The best part however is that you can start planning the next holiday straight away.

    So get stuck into uni, plan the next holiday and enjoy life!!

    Congrats on the new Senior Clearing Assistant position btw. How is it going for you?
