Iâ€™ve been feeling rather miserable lately because things havenâ€™t been going to plan. Carola and I have been stuck on Peteâ€™s fish farm with not more to do than hanging around and waiting for Pete to give us a job, some days we could wait hours just bumming around. To aggravate the situation Carola kept moaning about everything, and if I pointed out this fact to her, she would moan about that too! Needless to say I was becoming increasingly tired of her company as I came to realise that we didnâ€™t have much more in common past the fact that we both like our tea with no sugar! We run out of conversations a few weeks ago! So, I made the suggestion that we chose different hosts next and left Peteâ€™s farm even if we had no response. She agreed and we were off Saturday morning.
We reached the small historical coastal
My first words when we booked into the hostel were â€˜two beds in separate dorms pleaseâ€™! The manager smiled and made a funny remark, as expected, then we had a little chat. I tried my luck and asked if they needed any help with cleaning duties in exchange for free accommodation and he said yes, great! I had a loooooong hot shower, and a lovely cup of tea, then I sat on my bed in an empty room to write this entry. Earlier in the day I found an internet signal in town so I could check my email and found out that the next farm had accepted me for a week, just me. Everything was back on track and I felt much happier. I donâ€™t resent picking Carola up and sharing the last few weeks with her, itâ€™s hard work even for best friends to travel together 24 7, let alone strangers. I think it could have been a lot worse and to be fair, we did have some good laughs so weâ€™ll definitely stay in touch and maybe the distance will make our friendship stronger, or notâ€¦
