The end of the winter season is here. At this time, you will be saying many goodbyes to friends that you have made while living here in the USA.
Although the season was temporary, some of the friendships you have made are not, these people have become lifelong friends!
However, with goodbyes - come hellos; to family and friends back home or if you are planning on going up north for the summer season, hellos to new work colleagues and friends. That is the beauty of being on the Workaway International program. Although bittersweet, every day brings new adventures and something new to look forward to.
It is important to think of this new adventure as a new beginning. If you are going home perhaps you would like to venture on to a new opportunity, now that you have some international experience. If you are going up north for the summer season, maybe you would like to improve on something or add onto the experience earned during the winter season. Always remember that there is room for improvement in every aspect of your life, with this mindset - you will go far!
Hard work during the season does not go unnoticed, and if your country club is like Addison Reserve, they may even throw you a Staff Appreciation Party. We were lucky enough to have been invited to this event, which was held at The Falls Country Club, where all the employees are recognized for their dedication and work ethic. We were treated to dinner, prizes and raffles, followed by dancing to end the night off along with the season with our colleagues and friends.
Thank you, Addison Reserve, for yet another memorable season!
