    This sounds tempting! Is it easy to get a visa? Did you like the working environment? That hourly wage IS good, but I assume living expenses are higher than normal there? I may be wrong 😀

    • It is really easy to get a visa for most countries. Its all done online!
      Yes the living expenses are higher but i still managed to save wayy more in oz even with paying for rent and reguarly going that than i do in the UK and that includes living at home still!
      I always say that in oz you can spend a lot if you want but you can also save a lot, i guess like anywhere it depends on how well you budget 🙂

  3. Oh no don’t be scared of that! Literally in the cities its just like being in the UK! You won’t see any more spiders there than here! Maybe just go for a holiday first to see but i’m sure you would love it, especially if you have friends there! x
