Finding a job

After my visa was granted it was time to look for a job in Australia. At the moment I'm saving a lot of money, but it will never be enough for eleven months, unless I wanna camp every single night, drink water only, eat bread only and do no fun stuff... On top of that, it's impossible for me not to work for such a long period. Even though there is so much to do and see in Australia, I would be bored some day... And I like working! Only because I really like my job, so it doesn't feel like working too much...

I work as an adventure sport instructor and this is what I wanna do for a few months when I'm Down Under. I spend hours online to look for companies where I would like to work for and I found about 30 of those companies. Last week I send my application and CV to my TOP 5 favourite organizations. Next day: 1 NO and 1 YES and so far no other replies..
But one YES is enough!! This organization looks very professional and I really like their programs. So, at the moment we're looking for the possibilities and when I can start working. In the beginning I will get some training, so I will work the way they are used to, after that I can do paid work. Another good thing is that I can do WWOOFing when I'm not working as an instructor.
Already I keep in mind what I should do to be able to apply for a second Working-Holiday-Visa :p

Less than 3 months to go. In the mean time I'll be in Belgium for almost 1,5 month working as an adventure sport instructor... Time is flying!!!

lol guess I should just have read your previous comment. I dont know Barrington but I got a vague feeling it is close to some really nice nationalparks without the huge ammount of people you get in Blue Mountains.

Yep, it's in the Barringtons, about four hours north of Sydney a little land inwards
