Dream Destination: Oz aka Australia


Put another country on my bucket list.. ūüėČ

I already wrote an article about why I want to go to New Zealand¬†and that I would like to do some work & travel there. The reason why I chose New Zealand and didn’t mention Australia before is that I thought New Zealand is more beautiful and more special. But after some researching I found out that for Eurpoeans Australia is much more different and exotic than New Zealand. Don’t get me wrong, I still want to visit New Zealand but I thought about maybe doing some work & travel in Australia first for some months and mabye visit New Zealand after for a shorter period of time as it’s so much smaller than Australia.¬†I’ve also heard it’s easier to find work in Australia¬†and¬†that it¬†gets paid better.. but I guess it’s different from person to person¬†and everyone will make different experiences with working.

I’ve never really been into Australia much in the past but I totally changed my opinion. There are lots of things that got me being fascinated by Australia, for example all those photos of¬†Bondi Icebergs, this looks just way too cool¬†and I’d love to see it. And lately I’ve been watching so many videos of this channel¬†which makes Australia look like such a great country to visit. I also like that you can do so many diverse¬†activities¬†there: visiting interesting cities like Sydney, do rural work, diving and surfing, hiking in the outback and seeing animals like koala bears and kangaroos. As a child koalas have been my favourite animals and I still think they’re so cute and I’d absolutely love to¬†one day hold one. How childish, right? ūüėČ It’s also said that the Aussies are so much different from us Germans, way more open and friendly. I can already confirm that as I got to spend some time with some Aussies when being to Lapland and I’d love to experience their¬†way of living and to learn from their mentality. I really need to work on worrying less and being more relaxed and outgoing.

One more thought that came into my mind is that¬†if I visit New Zealand anyway why not do both, Australia and New Zealand as they’re quite close together and I’ll probably not get down there ever again? Would be quite a waste of opportunity, I guess.. I also heard it’s a lot cheaper to fly to Australia from Europe and to New Zealand from Australia.
