I arrived in Sydney in Australia on the 1st of December 2016 ready to start my adventure. With me I had a big backpack. After travelling for almost 2 days I felt relived to have arrived even though I knew I still had to find the hostel. At the hostel I shared a room with 5 other girls. Little did I know that one of them would become one of my best friends here in oz.
After 1 week in the hostel I attended the information meeting at The Work and Travel office. Here I met a girl from the Netherlands and we decided to attend the 1 week Surf Camp tougether. She is also now one of my friends.
The Work and Travel agency has been there for me since day one and I am very grateful for that. Knowing that I could come and talk to them no matter what I needed to talk about. They would e-mail or call me to check up on how I am doing.
They get a lot of jobs through the agency and I was lucky enough to work with the Captain Cook Cruises for the Vivid festival. It was a great experience that will stay with me forever.
After 6 months in Australia my journey have now changed from being a backpacker to wanting to stay here and build my life here.
