Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

This post is my contribution to this week’s photo challenge: Changing Seasons. Click here to see more entries.

For almost six years I worked seasons overseas. I’m fortunate enough to say that I have worked in Austria, Greece, America and Canada, and through my work I also got to visit other amazing countries such as Switzerland, Turkey, Germany and Italy. During my time abroad I got to add many jobs to my CV including holiday rep, resort manager, waitress, barmaid, housekeeper, ski guide and videographer. I met many other season workers whilst I was travelling. Some of them were working an ‘endless summer’, chasing the sun around the globe, and others chose the ‘endless winter’ route instead, working alternate ski seasons in the northern and southern hemispheres. Many people, like me, chose to go from one extreme to the other. I would spend six months of the year, from May to October, in a hot, sunny climate and then in November I would head off to a winter resort and live in the snow until April. The changing of the seasons was something that was very evident to me. Here are a few of my favourite photos from my ‘extreme seasons’.

    1. Definitely! Although the start of the winter season would always be a bit of a shock after being in all that lovely sunshine for six months!
