Chilcotin Holidays

Meeting Everyone

I got out of the safety of the bus entering a new and unknown environment. I didn’t know what to do or where to go. Luckily, someone walked up to me just seconds after I set foot on the ground. She introduced herself and I already felt a bit safer. We went to the office where I got to know a whole bunch of people. I shook many hands and learned new names that I tried my best not to forget. It was just time for lunch which would be a great opportunity to meet everybody else. I walk inside the dining room and everybody was helping to set up the table. First I just stood there again not really knowing what I was doing here but then someone asked me if I wanted to help and I gladly accepted. Here you get included into everything the second you arrive. You feel part of the team already and that makes everything a bit easier. I tried my best at small talk with various people and already learned a lot about them. You step into a community of people who are all so different but still share a lot of similar interests. I have never felt that included and accepted so fast before in my life. The next day I had to fill out a lot of paperwork which kept me in the office but luckily I was asked to come and learn to feed the horses. That way I learned more about how things work around here and I could get away from all the paperwork and actually connect with more people again.

I have now been here a week and I still learn so much about everybody here. Not only that but there are also new people arriving all the time so you constantly learn new names and personalities. I like talking to the people here. It is interesting to know why they came here or what they are planning to do afterwards. I already know that I want to stay in contact with a lot of them after I or they leave again.
