I have booked my flight to Melbourne. Friday the 15th will be my final full day in this great city, and the only thing keeping the sadness at bay is the excitement to get to know another great Australian city.
Another reason why I would really recommend a working holiday visa is that I can visit so many great places. Instead of the sad reality of having to fly home again after a short couple of weeks, I just move on to another beautiful and exciting destination. That is the thing with short holidays, by the time we get familiar with somewhere we have to leave. Check out, fly home and get back to work. I am still working here, but motivated by the fact that I am still on holiday. It makes it much easier.
Also, I am really pleased that I have had responses from two hotels in Melbourne that have considered a transfer. I am going to be in contact with one tomorrow and another in a few days. If I can get straight back into work that will be fantastic. I haven’t been able to save too much money in the past couple months and working will really help to fund my travels and provide me more freedom to explore. And with this, plenty more blogging material.
Also, I might be heading to Sydney for a day later this month. I have been requested to attend trial as a witness for an incident that occurred whilst I was working in the city roughly a year ago, however I am still unsure if I need to be there. It sounds like they are evaluating how much information I can provide and see if it is worth flying me down. Obviously I cannot state too much however if you see a post from Sydney after just arriving in Melbourne, this is why. I just have to wait and hear back.
So from the 16th, no more posts from Brisbane. I am very sad to leave, however I only have six more months here so it is time to move on. In a way the six months limit for work is a good thing as it keeps us backpackers moving when it is so easy to settle. And I feel I could settle here easily. It is a great place.
Brisbane, you will be missed!
