My uncle runs a 30 room motel in Rotorua and my retirement plan was to do something similar so I took this opportunity to come down to NZ to see if I liked or had the brains to run a motel.
I am glad to report that brains are functioning well and more importantly I actually like it.! It's something I could easily do. I am damn good at the admin side of things, lets not get into false modesty and just call it as it is, But I do however feel that my people skills are not as good as they should be when welcoming guests.
I tend to be shy and don't engage people in conversation that easily, but here in beautiful New Zealand with the friendly people I have let my guard down and actually enjoy chatting with all the different people that walk through the door..... I am partial of course to the gorgeous men that do walk through the doors..... Perfect opportunity to find a new boyfriend!
It's hard work and the hours are long, and it's not something you do on your own. But it is something I know I would love to do!
