Settled In and then a Big Shock

Yow I canâ€™t believe how fast the past few weeks has gone. Dave and I had the best time in Melbourne. Then once we got home we settled back into our life in Adelaide. Working, juggling our schedules, and spending time together whenever possible. I love my job. All of our guests are lovely, asking me great questions about being Canadian and what I think of Australia. I just cannot get over my life. I live in a great house with an amazing man, I have a 15 min walk to work along a gorgeous waterfront pathway, I work in a fancy hotel, serving delicious food to high end clients, the view from the dining room is the beach so every night shift I work I get to see a perfect amber sunset.
There was a big shock to my life though this month. My boss at my job in Canada resigned! I was stunned and immediately worried about our team and our business. My boss was an important part of my life and everyone elseâ€™s at work, playing more than just a boss role with everyone. He was also a friend and great support to us all, so to know he was moving on was difficult to face. I got in touch with our senior staff right away, saying I would step up if they needed me to and I would be happy to come home if they felt it would be the right thing for the team.
I feel blessed that I get to continue the trip and that I still have the month of April to travel. My plan is to leave work at the end of March. Dave and I are going to go to Alice Springs, I need to make plans to go to New Zealand and western Australia. Then Iâ€™m not sure what will happen, I want to go to Europe but I wonâ€™t have much time left on my trip, so I may just go to one or two countries before heading home. Weâ€™ll see. It will depending on what kind of deals I can find and what the best options are for making my way home.
It is not going to be easy to leave my job at the hotel, or plan to be leaving Dave. But there is no stopping this life, and Iâ€™m ready, lets be honest. Travelling again, twist my arm!
