3 weeks ago I introduced myself and told you about my first experiences with living in Cancun, Mexico as a Dutch intern. Now, after 6 weeks of working with EcoColors, I thought it was time to meet you again 🙂
At this moment, I’m over 1/4 of my internship. I’ve done a lot of new things the past few weeks, like develop tours, send follow-ups, work with SEO (Search Engine Optimization), writing articles for the newsletter and also this blog and manage the Pinterest-account of the company.
I also learned a lot of things outside the office. Little by little I’m learning to be by myself a lot, I know better how to shoo cockroaches, I solved the problem with the flooding in my bedroom and I finally have hot water in my shower.
I’ve also been a little bit of a tourist last week. I went to go on the Marine Turtle Adventure Tour. The snorkeling with the sea turtles was amazing, I just keep thinking: They’re so CUTE!!! And the cenote was really beautiful, with a free fish spa 🙂
Last weekend I went to Chichen Itza and it was a great experience. I saw my second one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and I also had the chance to see another cenote, only we had not the time to swim in this one.
Last week I had a hard time here in Mexico. I was sick and didn’t know if I would stay here or just go back home to the Netherlands. I’ve decided to stay and are glad I did. It’s only a little bit more than a month till my parents will arrive, so when I feel sad I just think about that I’m going to see them really soon.
Next month I will write something again…
But till then I just going to enjoy my time here and make some new memories I can tell you about!
