You’ve seen his name mentioned and his face scattered around this blog for the past few weeks but who exactly is this guy who has just popped up out of the blue? I thought I’d introduce him to the blog as he will be a familiar face from now on.
Ash is 20 years old, lives in a town called Carrickfergus not too far from Belfast and is a fellow rep. He was the first person in the team that I met this season when we were introduced at the airport. However, I thought he was gay on first impressions and I’ve since found out that he thought I was boring so you could say that for us, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. Throughout the season, we got to know each other, grew to like each other and through some drama, got closer together. Now we’re official and can’t wait to explore the world together. We love our days off discovering the island, have applied as a couple for future seasons and have plans to travel to Iceland, Thailand and beyond. We’re so excited about our future together and discovering this beautiful planet as a duo.
When taking up this job, I never thought I would find love. After just getting out of an intense relationship, it was the last thing on my mind, I just wanted to be single for a while and enjoy my life. For a year and a half, I did exactly that. I never even thought that this lifestyle would be a convenient place to find love. Rep life includes a lot of drama, a lot of games and even if you tackle that, you need to be 100% sure about someone as once the season is over, your relationship the majority of the time becomes long distance. I never expected to meet anyone, I never looked to meet anyone, it just sort of happened and I couldn’t be happier. I am so grateful to have someone who sees the world in the same way that I do, shares my passions and wants to travel with me. Our connection is so great and he treats me like a princess. We find out our Winter destinations on Tuesday (fingers crossed!) and from there, we will plan out our next adventures. Expect to see a lot more of him around here.
