The Summer Season...

By Andre Smith

So the summer season has come, which meant that things are slowing down at work and all the international staff have returned home. It was hard to say goodbye to some good friends that I’ve made over the season.

I’ve now moved into my own apartment and started building a home here in the US. I was just thinking the other day how natural it is now living here and how easy it was to settle in.

So as the title mentioned we’re in the “Summer Season”… Work at Addison Reserve is still busy and hasn’t slowed down much, but very happy to be there and enjoy going to work every day. We have an amazing team and are currently in the process of planning for next season.  We’ve got some fun events and parties planned for the members in the works..…

As an ex-member of the Workaway team in South Africa, I’m still following the recruitment process and getting excited to meet all the new recruits that will be joining us this year. It really is a life changing experience!

A negative of the summer season in Florida is that it’s the rainy season too, but still very hot and humid. The weather is much like that in Joburg with the afternoon showers and thunderstorms. The past few weeks we’ve been blanketed by cloud and tropical rains as Tropical Storm Andrea passed through. Everyone is just hoping that it’s not a sign an over active storm season here.

The summer season is also time to take a break and have days off to have some fun. I have no fixed plans yet, but think a trip to South Beach is way overdue and I need to work on a tan. Being pale in the sunshine state is not cool… so hoping to post some details soon.
