New Year, New Plans

Finally, I have something to look forward to!
I’ve booked flights to go to Rarotonga in February 🙂
As a Christmas Present, I got tickets for my Boyfriend and myself to spend 5 days on this beautiful island.
I decided on Rarotonga because Jetstar was doing a really good deal on flights. So good in fact that I contacted my friend Kerri and asked if her and her husband wanted to join us for 5 days away too and she said yes 🙂


A quick break-down on the people we’re holidaying with – I met Kerri back in 2014 when I was studying to be a nanny (yes you can get a certificate in nannying believe it or not) she wasn’t in my class however, she was my Nanny mum that I was placed with.
So I was actually looking after her 3 boys while she went to work.


When I was finished my 6 months of study, her and Glen (her Husband) offered me a full-time job with them and I accepted. For some reason, even though I don’t work for her anymore, we stayed really good friends. She literally lived down the road from me so I’d house-sit for them all the time and pop round randomly for chats.
Now that they’ve moved about 5 minutes away, I still pop round randomly for chats but stay for literally 5 hours and drag her to the gym with me for some company from time to time.
So yes – we’re all off to Rarotonga in February!

In other good news, I have a new job 🙂
I don’t start until I get back from Rarotonga which is still around a month away, but I’ll be leaving the Radio Station I work for and go on to become a Travel Agent. Pretty suited for me don’t you think?
It’s a little bit nerve racking because of everything I have to learn but I’m looking-forward to getting my foot in the door with a career I’m actually really interested in.
In terms of the Flight Attending path….I’m holding off on that at the moment. I think everything happens for a reason, and I’m sensing that right now just isn’t the right time for me to become an Air Hostess.
I’ll see where this Travel Agent path takes me instead. I could end up hating it or absolutely loving it but either way I hope I get some good travel deals.


I hope everyone had a good break over the Christmas/New Year holidays.
I had a wonderful time spent sunbathing up in Mount Maunganui – so much in fact that I’m about to write a post on all the things you can enjoy there. Even if you’re on a budget.

Happy New Year!

    Best to you in this new year that seems to be starting out very well for you so far! Excited to hear about Rorotonga. It looks absolutely beautiful and much like Bora Bora! Enjoy and best of luck with you new position as a travel agent. My sister-in-law is a travel agent and has been so fortunate to have received some of the most wonderful opportunities and I am sure you will also. Have fun and enjoy!
