Why You Should Try Life in Australia
Australia. It’s that land down under. It’s exotic, yet not at all strange. It celebrates Christmas in summer. It has all these sweet marsupials — and crocodiles. Its fierce wild dog has a cute name that rhymes with that of a famous drummer. Every creature in its territory actually has an endearing name — kookaburra, koala, kangaroo, great white shark… Plus, it has real life Tasmanian devils.
Let’s not even get started on the hot babes and dudes. I mean, come on. The place produces beauties like Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Cate Blanchett, Isla Fisher, and Rebel Wilson (I’m not being ironic here; Fat Amy is the hottest Barden Bella). Or what about those Aussie guys, eh? Mel Gibson (I swear he was a freakin’ god back in the ‘80s before he went cray-cray), Eric Bana, Hugh Jackman, those Hemsworth brothers, the Wiggles… all adorable guys with a panty-dropping accent, especially when they call you sheila.
But when everything’s said and done, it really all comes down to one word: Vegemite.
It will tempt you with its suspicious blend of microorganisms and vegetables, its appetizing shade of sludge, and confusing meaty-salty flavor. Or not quite. Okay, so if a mysterious sandwich spread won’t do the job of winning you over, the following reasons will:
· Nature at its best. You get fantastic water, stunning shores, majestic mountains, sultry rainforests, mystical deserts… It’s beautiful everywhere.
· Mild climate. The winters are cool and nippy, but not freezing cold. Although, if you want snow, you can always go to certain areas, especially those popular ski resort towns like Mt Buller. Neither are the summers as scorching as those in other regions. You can expect to be comfortable.
· Low population density. There’s so much land and space and a big chunk of it is not even populated. Even the top cities are not congested at all.
· Melting pot of culture. Considering its low population density, Australia is very welcoming of immigrants, which makes it extra colorful for the different cultures that exist together.
· Awesome work-life balance. There are great job opportunities for locals and for foreigners. The economy is thriving despite the laid-back lifestyle. Australians realize that there’s more to life than work. Living in a favorite holiday destination probably helps.
Beautiful land, beautiful people, beautiful life… I don’t know about you, but I’ve just about convinced myself to make the move. I think I’ll head on to Pathway Visas to find out how to get started.
