And just like that we’re almost a third of our way through the year.  Sorry, what…?  Maybe it’s time to panic, maybe it isn’t.  Just get cracking on the following, and you’ll have nothing to worry about (that’s if you’ve already downloaded our guide to working abroad);

The Summer Body

According to my grand life plan for 2017, I should be about a stone lighter by now and fully committed to quinoa and leafy green vegetables.  I don’t think I could’ve gone ‘Out-Out’ more in the previous three months if I’d tried, so it’s fairly safe to say the health kick has failed miserably.

An Accurate Depiction of my January-April

Not to worry, there’s plenty of time for crash diets and hours to be spent in the gym that would make Arnold himself jealous.  I hate to say it, but it’s probably time to ditch the carbs and pick up the cardio.  Woe is me…

It’s really not long until our first set of workers jet off.  To say Summer’s around the corner would be a bit of an understatement.  As the temperatures start to pick up, and the evenings are getting lighter, we’re poised for the Summer of a lifetime.

Some Sort of Holiday Plan…

Whether you’re thinking of working a season in one of our amazing resorts, or heading on a go-hard-or-go-home holiday, now really is the time to get it arranged.  For us, we’re down to our final spaces to work abroad, and the first set of arrivals are getting closer and closer to departing.  To say I’m excited would be an understatement.

Whilst trying to organise a holiday with the girls/lads requires the sort of organisational skills that could get you a degree in events planning, the beauty of working abroad is that all you need is yourself – you’ll meet your crew out there.

The Summer Romance

There’s always that one friend that falls truly, madly and deeply in love on holidays.  Fair play if you find the love of your life in Costa del Wherever, we’ve definitely seen a fair few Summer Takeover hookups in our time, who are we to judge?

If you’re the friend that gets swooped off their feet year after year, maybe have a quiet word with yourself.  The squad will definitely appreciate your presence if you’ve had a tendency to drop off the face of the earth in years gone by – and as it stands, you have time to develop a contingency plan.  Maybe you need to make a pact with your BFFs to stay single, or put a bet on it to keep you in check if you’re that way inclined.

Give yourself a distraction if need be, as an example; my summer romance of 2016 was called ‘Daiquiri’ – and you’d better believe we made plenty of happy memories on our tour of the resorts…

True Love

And there you have it, the three elements you need for an amazing summer.  Get cracking on the summer bod, lock down some holiday plans, and decide if you’re mentally prepared for a holiday romance.  Remember kids, Summer Love is a slippery slope to the Winter rebound…

With the Summer looming, and sangria on the mind, I’ll just leave you with one thought;
