Where in the World is AO? The Open Sea!June 29th, 2011 Jeremy
Anyway, I’ve been representing All-Outdoors and proudly wearing my forest green, Godfather-inspired tee from the 7th deck swimming area to my tiny cabin on deck 3 to this observation deck. The waters out here on the Atlantic are choppy enough that it’s physically impossible for any of the 676 students from 290 universities to walk in a straight line for more than a few feet. And I’ve definitely seen some rolling waves out here that rival the Miracle Mile on Cherry Creek.
But hey, at least on the rivers I can see land! I am happy to report that whenever any of my new friends have asked about my job at home, and they hear that I work for All-Outdoors, I’ve gotten awesome feedback. Alex from Colorado, one of the guys I met on move-in day, even went so far as to say that our discussion convinced him to come out to California after the trip and brave the upper T with some of his friends!
I’m having the time of my life so far (we sailed through the very beginning of the Strait earlier; we could see Africa on the starboard side, Europe on the port side!), but amid all these distractions, I’ve still taken a few moments to give AO a well-deserved plug to potential customers from all around the world! Hopefully the weather is still holding up in the Golden State and everyone in the AO family is enjoying a few more high-water runs…stay tuned for an update after four days in Spain!
