How I Lived In The Cayman Islands

By | October 17, 2009

It was a cold day in February of 2005 and I was in Toronto looking for hospitality jobs online. I randomly came across one that said food & beverage servers in the tropics of Cayman Islands. At that point in my life after being in Greece for three years, I didn’t even know where the Cayman Islands were exactly. I was in Canada, it was cold and there was snow outside. Anything had to have been better!!! My resume was already on the website so I applied for it without thinking to much into it.

A week passed and I received an email from The Westin Casaurina Resort & Spa from The Cayman Islands saying they would be interested in setting up a phone interview for me to come down as soon as possible. At the end of the email the Director signed off with ” Tropical Regards, ” which I thought was fabulous as it was in the minuses in Toronto!! It’s a Canadian dream to escape the weather and head down south to the tropics!

My interview went well, and now it was up to me if I wanted to take it. My job entitled being a beach girl serving pina coladas and light food around the pool, along the beach, in the lobby bar and pool side cafe. My uniform for the beach would be a bathing suit and skirt with my sunglasses and flip flops being optional.

I thought to myself , “I am 21 years old and when in my life will I ever have the opportunity to be a beach girl serving pina coladas up and down the beach in the Caribbean?” I like living with no regrets, and I knew this opportunity happened for a reason. There was no way I could refuse this fabulous experience so I went for a year!
