After working as a Laboratory Technician for 3 years I had finally saved up enough money to start my dream of Backpacking around New Zealand. I flew to New Zealand on a working holiday visa and travelled around both islands, working primarily in Auckland and then Lake Wanaka for the ski season. My Year working and travelling in New Zealand was such an incredible experience that instead of coming home I applied for a working holiday visa for Australia and continued travelling. During my first year in Australia I travelled the East Coast working in Canberra, Brisbane and Cairns. In order to extend my Working Visa, I need to completed 3 months regional work. I was fortunate enough to find work on a Cattle Station in Longreach, Qld and got to experience and entirely different way of life. During my second year, I travelled the West Coast finding employment in Sandfire Road House on the Great Northern highway and also spending time in Broome and the Kimberley region. Before returning home, I travelled through America from San Francisco to New Orleans, exploring the Southern States of America. Upon arriving home, I knew my future lay in the travel industry and therefore applied to college to achieve an HND in Travel and Tourism. While working towards my HND I was fortunate enough to be offered a job by DP&L Travel, who allowed me to complete my course and begin my new career as a Travel Consultant, helping people to create their own unique holiday experience.
