28/01/2012 – I’ve Got These Burgers, These double Cheese Burgers (Job Hunting Sydney)

For anyone who has ever seen Menace 2 Society they may recognise the quote in the title…..for those that haven’t it basically just describes hitting rock bottom with money (before it gets a bit weird). After the first few days of Sydney we were seriously running low and the magical credit card that has kept us afloat was fast becoming as useless as any gym membership I have owned. The job hunt was on. Having …

How To Use Gumtree To Find Your Dream Job In Oz…Or Just A Job For Some Wonga!

When you arrive in a city like Sydney you soon burn through what money you have especially when you can pay up to $4 for a small bottle of water and $8 for a return ticket to somewhere close on the trains/tube. So what do you do? The obvious answer is to either sell your body (Kings Cross is the perfect area for this, haha) or you get proactive and look for a job. I’d …

Mobile Phones In Oz

Owning a mobile phone in Australia on your travels is probably one of the best investments you can have, particularly if you want to get a job or stay in touch with new friends as well as your old friends and family back home.

Aegean Air Review

Aegean air onboard food

After searching the internet for the best flight deal we stumbled upon Aegean Air, the main Greek Airline. Although only flying out from London Heathrow (for flights into Athens), we decided to quickly check their prices to see whether savings in flights would justify the added travel time and inconvenience that we would be subjected to having to come from Newport. After a bit of searching around their easy to navigate website we found that …

My Moment Of Reflection – Travelling Is The Way Forward

I’m lying in my bottom bunk of the Billabong hostel in Perth having missed my shift at work due to my alarm not going off. The stress of knowing you have let someone down is not nice and it has brought back memories from when I was working my 7-3 job back in England. It has further enforced my belief that life is just too short to work a job where your heart isn’t 100 …

My Overview Of Vang Vieng

In a nutshell I would best describe Vang Vieng to be a party haven for people aged between 17 and 30. In the day you have many bars which all boast a similar layout of relaxed couch booths and large flat TV screens playing either ‘Friends’ or ‘Family Guy’.
