A rollercoaster ride of experiences



Jordan – 20 August 2023 – blog by Albatool –

Who would have thought that a trip to Jordan for a WetSkills competition would turn into a whirlwind of laughter, camaraderie, and unexpected adventures? As we landed in the vibrant city of Amman, little did my friends and I know that we were in for a rollercoaster ride of experiences that would leave us with stories to tell for a lifetime.

Our journey began with the intriguing introduction to our new friend, “Lolo” from Palestine. The moment we met Lolo, we knew we were in for some serious fun. His boundless energy and witty sense of humor made every moment memorable. As we navigated the streets of Amman, we couldn’t help but get caught up in Lolo’s infectious laughter.

Amid the competition buzz, we stumbled upon a hidden gem a salon run by an extraordinary Iraqi woman The salon experience turned into a sidesplitting comedy show as we attempted to explain the glamorous transformation we wanted. The language barrier, mixed with our over the top descriptions, had us and the salon owner in fits of laughter. In the end, we emerged from the salon feeling like a million bucks, or perhaps more accurately, like a million giggles.

The competition training was an eye-opener. On the second day, we were in for a surprise as we participated in a unique team building activity a test that unveiled our hidden abilities.

It was like a game show, with us discovering talents we never knew we had. The atmosphere was electric as we cheered each other on and celebrated every newfound skill. Little did we know, these insights would come in handy sooner than expected.

Ah, but life has a way of throwing curveballs. Just when we thought things were going swimmingly, a pesky virus decided to make an uninvited appearance. One by one, my colleagues and I fell victim to its clutches. Yet, our spirits remained undeterred.

We turned our sick bay into a comedy club, trading funny anecdotes and trying out our best impersonations of each other’s sneezes. As luck would have it, I earned the title of “Longest Illness Survivor.” A dubious honor, for sure, but one I embraced with humor. Wrapped in a cozy blanket, I embarked on a hospital adventure alongside my trusty companions, Lulu and Mo. The hospital visit, while an unexpected twist, brought forth more laughs and inside jokes. Who knew that hospital gowns could be a canvas for our impromptu artistry?

In the end, our trip to Jordan was far from ordinary. It was a tapestry woven with humor, friendship, and unforgettable experiences. WetSkills, Lmaes, salon escapades, and unexpected hospital visit our journey was a testament to the unpredictability of life and the joy of embracing every twist and turn with open arms and uproarious laughter. As we bid farewell to Jordan, we carried back not just memories, but a bond forged through laughter and shared tales that would forever keep us connected across borders and miles.
