We’re FINALISTS for Amble Resorts’ Isla Palenque Island Intern Contest!

And we couldn’t have done it without all the incredible support from our family and friends!  Thank you to each and every person who voted, told their friends to vote, posted the link as their facebook status and tweeted like crazy. Thank you to those who told the judges why we would be the best interns and wrote blog posts about us and the voting process. (Check out Alexa’s and DAG’s) Thank you to everyone who listened to us talk about the competition constantly, and to those who put up with our daily facebook updates for two weeks. It was incredible to watch the votes come in from all around the world. Seriously, we had votes from Ecuador, Colombia, Spain, Italy, Australia, Mexico, Canada…the list goes on and on. We are extremely grateful to have a global network with incredible people in it!

Now comes the hard part. We’re one of 12 finalists, each of whom is incredibly talented. This phase consists of a Skype interview and a blogging assignment, and the ultimate Island Intern will be decided on May 2. But no matter what happens, we seriously feel so blessed to have so many people supporting us.  In case you haven’t already seen, check out the judges comments on our video here. They noticed how awesome our support network is, too :-)
