The second job was a function at the Bungee Centre which is the site of the worlds first commercial bungee. The New Zealand Open was having its final closing party and I was surrounded by elegant dresses and ridiculously large diamonds. There were people being approached for pictures and autographs and I just walked around party with a tray of food hoping I wouldn’t drop it as I told them I had been a waiter before (I haven’t). The crowd was really friendly and as the free booze flowed so did the courage and one by one men in suits and women in dressed started partaking in the party’s (complimentary) bungee jumps. At the end, they gave us tons of free food, beer and wine! Yes.
Today, I went to The Hills golf course and helped take down all the stands/tables/tents from last weekends NZ Open. It’s a beautiful golf course. 500 per game. The views are incredible. I have worked lined up for the next three days at a different bungee place followed by a different function on Friday! I have no clue what I’ll be doing but that’s half the fun. Then I’m taking off and going to do a three day hike outside of Queenstown. 😎
It’s good to be back and good to be thrown back into these ever so random jobs.
Hope all is well back home & to everyone around the globe! 🌎🌍🌏
