I'm moving to Cyprus!



Now, as you all may have heard me write about before, I have been offered a job with Thompson Travel to be an Overseas Holiday Advisor! I was told about being offered the job back in October yet did not know until 2 days again WHERE I would be going. I then received that all important phone call telling me I would be going to CYPRUS for 6 months! 

I have never been to Cyprus before and, to tell the truth, I am both so very excited and nervous! I have always been a 'go for anything' kind of girl, drop everything for any opportunity thrown at me. But, I do have a boyfriend who I have been with for over 2 years and we plan to be together forever. So the thought of me leaving him for 6 months and him possibly popping out to visit me only once or twice is terrifying! 

I am still all in a cofuffle about things and would like to know if any of you have done this type of job before? Or at least, if any of you have been to Cyprus before and what it is like!

  2. Cyprus is amazing! I'm going for like my 9th time in June! It's much similar to the UK but of course it's not, haha. My dad use to stay there when he and his family when he was younger and he loved it. It really is a great place! It would be such a hard decision considering your situation but remember it is completely your choice. It would be difficult staying away from you boyfriend but they are internet connects etc to help. I know that it's not the best thing, but it's still something. It depends if it's something you really want to do or not. Good luck!xo

  12. Sorry, I have no help with your questions but congratulations.
    I can imagine it may be a little hard but its such a good opportunity and with skype and face time and things its so easy to "see" each other a lot of the time. I think if your in a stable enough relationship 6 months will be fine. Good luck whatever you chose anyway :)

  13. Oh wow I've never been or done a similar job but I'm sure it will be a fantastic experience, good on you for having the guts to do it! I went to Camp America for 3 months at the start of my relationship and we just Skyped when we could and looked forward to our holiday at the end, it was fine :) x

  16. Omg, so beautiful! I've never been to a place like that, so I'd be like "See ya in 6 months, boyfriend!" lol

  18. Do what you feel is right, I'm sure your relationship will survive, but can imagine how difficult it would be for you! I don't think Cyprus is quite as pretty as people imagine! I know my friends family are from around there and its not always like those photo's but depends where you are! None the less it would be an amazing opportunity for you! I am a new follower.

  19. Wow, such an amazing opportunity! it'll be hard to be away from home and your fella but I think it's one of those things you may regret if you don't try it. And God knows 6months will fly by you'll be having so much fun ;) Best of luck with it!

  20. Cyprus is wonderful! I've been there once. It's a beautiful place and the nightlife is good too haha! I'm that kind of person as well - if an opportunity comes, I grab it and rarely say no to things. You should go for it and just enjoy this! I'm sure you and your boyfriend will be fine, especially if you've been together for two years already. I know some friends that have done/do long distance relationship (for longer times or when the return isn't even certain!) and it was fine. I wouldn't worry about it :) He could visit you every two months for a week or so and we live in a time where communication isn't a problem at all. You got Skype!
    It'll be a wonderful experience :D
