Diary Of A Project Manager Take 7- Turkey

Today I missed out on going on a hot air balloon. Half the participants went though and it was amazing just to see how happy they are. How often in youth work can you say you have had the chance to go on a hot air balloon? I know if I had contacted my manager I could have probably got the extra money I needed to go on the balloon but lucky I didn't as I was ill on the night and morning so I may have ended up missing out anyway. I guess it just wasn't my time to balloon! My time will come though besides this trip is not about me and to be honest hearing the stories from the young people was just as much fun as going on myself. They sounded like they had an amazing time read about it here.

Today was a free day so everyone caught up on some much needed rest. Well nearly everyone. Poor Sarah managed to scold her hand probably because she was in a daydream about how great hot air balloons were. so we called the host and got mission to get her some meds. Trying to translate to Turkish pharmacists is interesting. Two countries now who have looked at me blankly when I ask for ibuprofen. We got her creamed and bandaged up and headed to the mall.

Never has a burger king tasted so good. I NEVER go to burger king in the uk but man we just wanted to have something yum after a stressful day after both of us had been feeling icky and Sarah needed some serious cheering up and a proper Veggie meal in her belly. We unwrapped it all and took a minute to take it in before devouring it.

The rest of the day we chilled and had a bonding session with the other guys by doing some really fun and insightful psychology tests that one of the girls knew. If you want to play leave a comment.
