and setting up our office
So to catch up on the month that I’ve spent here so far. I have been-
On a 7 day trip with Pat’s good friends – Peter, Herma and Stefan from the Netherlands
On a 2 day trip with some young Germans from Cologne
Developing and making first steps in our local youth guide training program
Getting the office ready
Developing the website, promoting and marketing our project
Our office is pretty sparse at the moment to say the least! As we don’t have a large budget we’re doing it up step by step. First we’ll get all the essentials, cooking equipment, a kettle, fans, a mosquito zapper and the rest we’ll worry about later.
Right now I’m busy writing, designing and making all the literature that needs to go in the office. Brochures, photos and posters etc.
Although we’re doing things step by step, there is also an urgency to get the front of the office up and running as soon as possible. Several foreigners have walked past the front of the office wondering exactly what we’re all about.
Its not just gonna be a regular office where we just give travel information and take bookings. We’re going to make it into a place where people can come and chill out, drink coffee and read a book. In typical Thai style it will be very ‘sabaii sabaii’………
