A quick update on my travel plans

So my last day at work is the 12th March. This is due to my contract ending, 6 months is all I get with one company on a working holiday visa. Shortly after this I will be relocating to Melbourne.


As much as I will miss Brisbane, the 6 month rule is good as it keeps me moving. If I was able to stay longer I would be in danger of staying put, wasting my two year visa not exploring. Two years can fly by, and they are. I wouldn’t want to fly home again and regret not seeing Australia.

I am looking to get straight back into work as I haven’t saved much money. I had a holiday with a friend before Christmas and another with my family just after Christmas, and I am not getting many shifts at work. But this won’t affect my blog and I will be here daily.

So I think my last day in Brisbane may be the 13th March. Not that I want to leave, but sometimes we have to force a change even if it doesn’t feel right. Sometimes these changes are met with big rewards.

Expect many more posts from March onward to be Melbourne related, and I am sure this city will give me plenty to blog about!

  1. Still a month left in Brisbane for you to enjoy. I love your mentality to keep on moving rather than staying put for a year or two while on the visa. I’m coming up halfway through my first 6 months contract and not sure where or what to do next but that’s the joy of a working holiday visa!

    Let me know if you ever want to grab coffee when you arrive in Melbourne! Always keen to meet fellow travellers and bloggers 🙂

    1. Thanks, I may take you up on that when I get there 🙂 I will post on here when I arrive.

      Well with winter coming in the next few months maybe escape to somewhere a little hotter up north? Maybe do the east coast! I loved that experience.


    1. 100%. Staying in one place for so long always builds a connection that is hard to break from when we leave. Always a sad moment when we have to say goodbye!
