Good Afternoon everyone!!
A friend and my self are thinking about moving to the rock this nov-may (the tourist season) and yes, i have read many posts so far, and a lot of my questions have been answered. however, I am really concerned about the crime as we are 2 white females in our early 30's and attractive.. Not that it matters, I think it only matters that we are white females?? i would like some info on that, rather then what i see from google,but perhaps from some other females who live there or who went to the island during the tourist season.
From what I have read, it doesn't seem that we would have a hard time finding waitress/bar tending positions, which we both have many years of experience in! My friend and I thought it would be a perfect time in our lives to work on the island for the 6 month tourist season, take in the island and hopefully make new friends and money while we were there!
My questions are (again, crime with women there) , anyone else who has moved there for the season, did you like it? would you do it again? was the money worth it? were you able to make and save a lot of money in the restaurant/bar industry? where did you live or where is a safe place to rent a furnished apartment for the 5 or 6 months that you lived there? and which side of the island? did you rent a car while you there? and what restaurants/bars are the best to work at, fun and made a lot of money?
If anyone could take the time to answers these questions, I would love it and would be greatly appreciated!! I would like to hear the good, the bad and the ugly!! 🙂 from someone with experience, living there or who has done exactly what I would love to do this fall!!
I look forward to hearing from you all and thank you for taking the time to read this and respond!! 🙂
