A new blog, a new challenge*


G’day mates! It’s me again! Ever since being back from Australia (June 2012), I haven’t written to you in a while! I frequently look back at my old blog and can’t help but smile and reminisce on the amazing time I had while I was away. Unfortunately posterous.com (my old blog website) is closing down at the end of April, which means I had to find a new place to share my stories.

I find it at no better time that I am beginning a new chapter in my blogging. I am currently participating in a contest through Campus Perks & Tourism Australia and I have already made it to the second round. In the beginning of March, 20 students across the country were selected to compete for votes in order to make it to the “campus travel guru” round. I have made it to the second round and am currently competing against 9 other Canadians from various Universities in hopes of being Tourism Australia’s next Travel Blogger. You may be wondering, what is this competition and contest all about? What is Campus Perks – Tourism Australia’s “Best Jobs in the World” campaign? Well continue reading and I will give you the low dowwwwwn…

First and foremost… take a look at this;;

Best Jobs in the World Trailor

If that doesn’t get you intrigued and interested to continue reading… I don’t know what will!

The “Best Jobs in the World” is a campaign put on through the various states in Australia and Tourism Australia. They offer 6 of the most INCREDIBLE job opportunities imaginable for anyone over the age of 18. Whatever your interests, these jobs will fulfill them as they feature the best that Australia has to offer. From experiencing the magnificent landscapes and scenery, native plants and animals, indigenous culture, taste-bud tingling food and wine, and the busy city life, there will be stories you can’t wait to share with the rest of the world.

So you may be asking… what’s the catch? These jobs sound like a dream, how can these be real? Well I am here to tell you that these jobs are completely LEGIT. They offer 6 month contracts in locations all over Australia, and a $100,000 package! Sounds TOO good to be true.

Check out the 6 jobs HERE!

Over the last couple weeks I have been spreading the word through my various social networks (Facebook, twitter, instagram) about The “Best Jobs in the World!” You can find me around Western Campus with a ton of AUZsome swag that is yours to keep!
