I don't have any stories to tell you. but I'm planning to look for something different for work as well while i'm there.

When are you going?! Hotels are always interesting, I assure you. I'm working in one.

I worked as a counter staff for 2 weeks in a deli/cafe, was tiring but different from working behind a computer.
I also did few hours of baby sitting.

My boyfriend worked as kitchen hand - it's not funny at all but it's still money!

My bresilian housemate did counter staff job in a fish and chips, she also worked as a cleaner (desk cleaning) the evening in business buildings and now she is working as a waitress in a restaurant.

Now I work in a multimedia company, so back in an office but I think I prefer that. :)

My australian housemate has worked for a while a national park and said was very cool!
