RE: [ENG] Australia Working Holiday Visa #3 Albany

in #partiko3 years ago

hi @general.guy, Australia seems so far away! It's already on the wish list but every time we read some posts we add details !! Are you a traveler too? or did you go to Australia to look for work? I can't wait to hear about apples!
Congratulations and thank you for sharing with us

Hi @road2horizon, yeah Australia is far away but if you plan to stay for a longer period of time then its worth it. I went there for travelling. We travelled around Australia. Basically we started our tour in Sydney with our tour and travelled counter clockwise until we reached Melbourne. But to be able to do it, we also had to work for example to buy our car. This is where the apple picking comes into play :D Thank you for liking it :)

If I'm not wrong, I read in your previous post that you're German: why did you choose Australia for this adventure? Lately I meet a lot of people who go there as if it were the American dream ... do you live better there than in Europe?

You are right. I'm from Germany. Actually I dont know why it had to be Australia. But something in me wanted to go there. Maybe because I watched too many Steve Irwin shows :D

I think many go there because many already went there. So many people talk about travelling in Australia and that inspires doing the same. To do what is known. Australia has perfectly positioned itself for travellers. Tourist roads and information everywhere. Many free showers and many free water spots and much more. And easy to go working with the "Working Holiday Visa". One day doing paper work for the government and you are ready to go.

Do you live better there? Is not so easy to tell because I can only speak from the view of a Backpacker. And other factors like what kind of person you are and what kind of lifestyle you need etc.

For example you only paid 13% Tax from your Income. And with the TaxBack at the end of the year with the working holiday Visa you got everything back. So at the end I got 100% payment on hand. (But I think they changed this on 2017 or 2018. You don't get everything back now)

The living costs in Australia are higher than in Germany, but the income in Australia is proportionally higher. So you can afford more with your earned money. To come to an end, in my case I lived better than in Germany.

Good night :)
