The adventure of a Kon-Tiki Trainee – Part 4

Kon-Tiki Trainee on boat

The first day of the week once again, it’s kind of hard to tell what day it is, because you never know when you have your off day, so the week looks something like six Mondays and one Sunday. I like it even if I am a person of routines and planning, very different from Sweden when you know that for example on Thursday; I’m in school until 15.50 and then me and my friends are going to the café to prepare before the hockeygame that night.
To the point, today I was drystaff on Kon-Tiki Krabis Snorkeling Safari. I rather be in the water but someone needs to check so everyone is OK in the water and count everyone in so we won’t forget someone in the water. I meet some really nice Americans that were so social and interested in the Swedish culture. I love to meet new people and give them a nice memory.
Second “Monday”, hehe, I were in the shop together with Jessica and Johanna. I started of the day with some cleaning in the shop and get some extra stuff out in the shop. Later on that day I went with one of our freelancer to check out some houses that she might be interested in. it is a nice break from work to just take a ride with the bike.
Mid-day of the week and I was going to one of our resorts, Sheraton. I was going with Mauro. It was not much to do that day. Just some guests with questions and one who wanted to try scuba in the pool.
Thursday was my second day at our resorts, but this time at Centara with Johan. Not much to do here either. I mostly were alone in the shop, therefore Johan had an OW Student the whole day. For every day that goes, the more fun it gets to meet and talk to the guests.

Centara KrabiNo work today. Had plans to go to the beach and maybe take a massage, so I went up at 9am for breakfast, and then took a shower. When I was just on my way out from my room, I checked the sky. Black! There was total blackness and evil. So yeah, I stayed inside, drew some sketches, watched some movies. There you have my off day.
Another day on the boat, this time as a drystaff, not so bad when you have all the lovely guests that we have. This time it was some guys from Australia. Somehow we started talk about Swedish culture and what swedes do on Christmas. They found it hilarious that everyone sit down at 3 pm and watches Donald duck and his friend’s wishes you a happy Christmas. They didn’t have that kind of tradition. It’s fun to see different cultures meet!
Later that night, it was hockey, my beloved Farjestad played against our rivals. It was a special game; my team celebrated their 80’s anniversary. I’m a little sad that I could not participate but I would never trade that game for these two months here. We won that game, (of course!;) ) 4-1, awesome!
Sunday – today is blog work and some things in the shop that needs to be done, so that’s it for this week and I’ll keep in touch and you get to hear from me next week. Bye! 🙂
