Vacations

One of the benefits of doing travel nursing is the excellent opportunities for vacations practically year round. I've determined to take a week or two vacation in between each 13 week assignment, sort of like a pat on my own back for making it through.

I spent the last week in Hawaii on the Big Island. My hubby's fam rented this lovely house right on the ocean sea board, away from the 'tourists' and closer to nature. It was absolutely lovely, I sat on the rocks, watched the waves and read all the books in my To Be Read pile. It was nice to get away from rainy, cloudy Portland. And that was my first time in Hawaii so it was very great.

My next trip is planned at the end of this new contract. I'm going to start a CCU position in a community hospital about 30 minutes from my house. The manager showed me around the unit, and I'm actually excited. Tomorrow is D-Day...new agency, new pay, new unit, new field. The scene is set for me to rock out! Hopefully it won't end up the same ungrateful mess my last assignment was. Boy, I'm glad that is over!

So after this assignment, I'm going to Nigeria!! I'm really excited about that. I haven't been back to Nigeria in almost 7 years so it's going to be an experience.

Well, I left a comment in your new gig post but I couldn't help but leave another for this vacation post. I just visited Hawaii last summer (Oahu) but it was by far the best vacation I've experienced. I mean, beforehand I visited Mexico and South Korea but Hawaii was by far the best experience. I plan on going back this summer. Just wanted to share my thoughts on Hawaii. Have fun in Nigeria!
