I miss IOM, all of a sudden. Kinda shocked and sad when I got wind that our college closed down due to mis-management.
During my internship, I stayed back on the island and I did my practical with Cherry Orchard hotel (along Bridson road) which is just a stone’s throw from the college.
My plan was to save enough “Sterling” to get a second-hand car (to impress girls, what else)
All in all, I can genuinely say that I enjoyed my training despite being bullied initially.
I can still vividly remember when Mr Seamus Whelan (the GM) actually asked me to draft my own testimonial upon completion of my training!
I drafted and he signed. No amendment and no questions asked. Cool guy.
Nice and condusive place to study. In fact, if there were 6 cars on the road, the locals consider its already traffic congestion!
