For those of you who may be wondering, life in Cayman is still good. Hot and humid but good. I’ve put in my request to extend my contract for another two years. My current 2 year contract will be complete in September, so fingers crossed that I get an extension. I enjoy the slower pace of life here and, of course, the beaches. The job is still great and the benefits are amazing. One of my favorite benefits is the vacation time. In my old place of employment in the states, one accrued vacation hours monthly and could only take time off when they had accrued enough hours. Here, you are allowed use of all of your vacation time starting at the beginning of the year. You don’t have to wait MONTHS in order to use the time that you’ll gain. It’s wonderful. And thanks to our 4 days on, 4 days off schedule, one is able to take a mighty long vacation at a time.
SO! With that being said, I’m getting ready to take the trip of a lifetime next month.
Hang on to your hats:
I’m going to South Africa for two weeks!
Just a fair warning, the next several posts will be all about the trip.
