This week we are continuing cleaning the rice factory. There is so much dust and dirt to get rid of. I do like to work in the rice factory and it's a good feeling leaving the hostel every day and actually do something.

I love the weekends at Delta Backpackers. There is always something fun happening and this week it was time to dress up in the shittiest clothes. I decided to borrow a few pieces of clothing from my friends and mix and match colours and patterns.

Loved it and the fun thing about dressing up is that everyone at the hostel seems to get to know each other better. Love these people!!

Good news! Today we manage to pick up some extra work in a rice factory.

Woke up early and drank a cup of te when the receptionist suddenly asked if there was four people that could start work straight away. I said yes straight away and suddenly me and my friends was working with cleaning a rice factory!

We are are still waiting for work here in Ayr, the working list is changing everyday but we still have a long way to go... It get a bit boring just staying in the hostel so me and Christine decided to explore Ayr as much as possible.

Every evening we go for a sunset walk and we are still trying to find the best place to watch the sunset. Today we found a pretty good place in one end of the town. Sugarcane fields and an old train rack. Loved it ❤️

Hello from Ayr, my new home town for a couple of months. Ayr is a small countryside town with a population of 9000 people and a lot of backpackers. There are a few working hostels and hopefully a lot of work coming up soon.

It's a cute little town and I honestly think I will like it here and its so peaceful compared to Sydney.

So it's time for a new adventure and this time it's farm work that's awaits. Ever since I came to Australia my plan has been to do Farm Work, regional work that can be signed off towards a second year visa in Australia.

I had set my mind to work in a banana farm in the Cairns area, Innisfail or Tully. That plan change pretty fast when I realised that there wasn't a lot of work and the season was really slow. So I started calling working hostels in the whole Queensland and there was basically just one Working Hostel that had space.

So I've now arrived to a small country side town called Ayr and I'm staying at a working hostel. The season is supposed to start in May so hopefully I can start working soon.

Finally we got some sun today! Cairns is quite small and there is not a lot of things to do there (if you don't have a car). But if the weather is good you can spend the day at the lagoon.

The lagoon is a public pool, there is no beach in cairns and there are a lot of crocodiles and jellyfishes in the area so you're not allowed to swim in the ocean.

Yesterday two of my friends arrived to Cairns, they have been driving up from Brisbane. We decided to do some exploring today and we ended up driving to Barron Falls.



I love the nature up here. Everything's so green and there is so much to see! After visiting the Barron falls we found a tiny river in the jungle were you could swim, a beautiful look out and the last stop we did was lake Placid.

Hello Cairns! After almost six months in Australia it was finally time to see a new city. I'm now up in northern Queensland and it's very different from Sydney.

The climate is so much more tropical up here, it's really humid and about 30 degrees. I love it already!

We are staying at Global Central Backpackers, it has a really good location and has prices from 18$ a night. I would personally recommend to stay there if you go up to cairns.

Today is the day, we are leaving Sydney! Me and Christine have packed our bags and have just enjoyed a pancake breakfast before heading to the airport.

I've had an incredible time here in Sydney, I've got to know amazing people, seen amazing places and had a really fun job. These past 6 months have gone so fast and when I came here I never thought I would spend so much time here.

I will leave this city with a lot of nice memories and it will always have a special place in my heart.

But now it's time for new adventures and I'm getting excited to see what's going to happens next. Next stop Cairns! ✈️
