Tuesday 24th September 2013 Ahh, forgot to mention another frog/toad incident. So before I went on the Grass Pond adventure, I was tossing up wearing boots or just flip flops. I grabbed the shoe and knocked I against the windowsill expecting a spider to come out but instead it was just a little toad!! I left him there and opened up the windows more so he could jump out but he didn’t seem to want to move. When I came back from the adventure, I had just assumed he was gone. I went to bed with the mosquito coil on because there were a ton of bugs out. When I woke up this morning and made my bed, opened the windows, there was the little toad friend again, just sitting on the floor. I ... read more

Saturday 21st September 2013 Saturday is just another normal working day. We have another 2 guests that have arrived, a mother and daughter team from the UK. They are a lovely pair and it’s good to have some guests again. Unlike most of the other guests that stay 2 nights, they are staying 3 nights in Rewa. I personally think you would need 4 or 5 days to really see the whole of Rewa but still, 3 nights is a good effort! For dinner, Toria decides we should try rum and lime juice and it sure does go down a treat. I am going to have to bring a few bottles of El Dorado rum back home with me. A few glasses go down a treat and I feel so happy I can barely ... read more

Monday 16th September 2013 – halfway It’s a usual day back at work and it’s onto those projects I left behind from the first week of the trip. I head over into the room – which is already getting a little bit on the hot side – and get started on the work. I’m still attempting to build them a quote document which will make it easier to quote as well as being more consistent with pricing. All the bookings clerk will need to do is plug in the number of guests (or in their terms PAX), the number of nights they are staying and then yes or no to the 3 options of tours available. But due to some of their more complex/strange pricing, it is making it difficult to then divide between ... read more

Friday 6th September 2013 Finally a cool day! The breeze is actually quite cold and I find myself wearing a shirt over my singlet rather than using my shirt to collect and wipe all my sweat during the day. The day starts and I set to work trying to build an excel matrix for quoting 2014 rates. At the moment, it’s very manual and they spend a lot of timing add the costs up. I have literally worked on it all day and I’m almost there, just having a couple troubles with how they cost a particular portion. I’m trying to make it easy enough for them to review the rates again and update in 2015. I’m outta there at 4pm, my brain is fried and the heat box certainly got hotter and hotter ... read more
