Working in Hospitality


Working in hospitality has allowed me to travel the globe. It has changed my life and has changed me and my attitude towards life for the better. When you work in hospitality I believe you create strong bonds with your colleagues that they feel like family and become life long friends. I have worked in Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs and Cruise ships and I would be lying if I said it was easy. Its not easy its very hard and long hours but you have the best memories and the most fun that it makes it all worth it.

My best job was when I was working everyday on a cruise ship. Most people think I’m crazy when I say I loved working everyday but I genuinely did. Ship life was the most amazing crazy experience and I would definitely do it again! The life of a cruise ship worker is so unique and would seem crazy to the rest of the world. We accept the most outrageous situations and live life to the fullest but on land the situations you find yourself in at sea just would not happen on land. A life at sea is a complete different world. If you have not heard the saying No Rice, No Power! You definitely have not worked on a cruise ship.

I have worked in Hospitality for 3 years and I get to stay in hotels for free I get my flights paid for and some companies I work for pay for all my travel expenses. That’s the luxury side of it but hard work is put in to get those privileges. So what do I do? I am a Chef! There are so many other job roles that give you this way of life and its quite an easy industry to get into because a degree is not necessary. So why is Hospitality so great?

You get to travel by working in Resorts, yachts, ships, and hotels.

You meet people from all over the world and gain knowledge about different cultures.

You become open minded and more accepting.

You make life long friends.

You will always have exciting stories to tell and amazing memories.
