    kevin and christine…

    kevin has been a traveling nurse for 6 years. 3 years ago i joined him fulltime. we live in our 5th wheel fulltime and travel to our assignments. right now we are in avalon, ca. catalina island. since no cars are allowed on the island we had to take housing for the first time. the housing is a nightmare, a real nightmare!!! but the island and the people are great and we are enjoying our time here. that being said we are only on a 4 week assignment. they asked kevin to extend and he politely said “no” thank-you. if this was a 13 week assignment he would have found a way out of here. that says a lot because if you knew kevin he is very easy going and has never, never in 6 years talked about hating some assignment so bad he was going to “find” a way to get the hell out of here. we love traveling and this life style. we are really looking forward to going to st thomas, we know the housing is a crap shoot and the pay is not the best but we love the ocean, scuba and everything that goes along with it. we spend a month in cozumel in september highs 90’s and humidity in 80’s. it took a week but we got used to it. thanks for all the advice!!!! we certainly appreciate it…

    I have done travel nursing in the past and spent one and one half years at St Croix and loved it. The working conditions are not all that great but, the experience was worth it all. I would love to go back to St. Croix or St. Thomas for that matter. I would love to find another single traveler that would like a travel partner to go with. Is there anyone that would like to partner up and go to the Virgin Islands for a contract? I would just rather not travel alone to the Virgin Islands. The last time I was there, a former co-worker went with me and it was so nice. I don't think I would have stayed as long if I were alone. I just wouldn't feel safe. Just a thought. Anyone interested?

    What is your speciality and travel buddy preferences? Ask many questions, you will find someone!

    My specialty is the Operating Room. I would just like to find a travel buddy to go there with me and enjoy the island life for a bit. I really have no preference of the travel buddy as long as they like to enjoy life...........little to no drama!
