Have you heard of The Best Job In The World? Just in case you missed the breaking news flash I'll fill you in. The global economy is going down hill, and tourism is most likely following industry patterns in such an economy. However, Queensland Tourism had a bright innovative idea! Not only would they higher a person to become an Island Caretaker, they would hold an online video application competition to pick the best candidate for the job. Soon enough their server(s) crashed, as they were flooded with applicants from around the world. After all, the perks are not only working on a Great Barrier Reef island, but one gets to stay in a payed for resort house while getting paid AUD $150,000 for a whole six months! Who would pass up a job, that only requires one to blog about how awesome life is on the Great Barrier Reef? Of course this includes my all time favorite activity, swimming.
