When I first decided to take advantage of the Australian Work and Holiday Visa (WHV), I didn’t have a solid plan. I was 26 years old and terrified.
Go to another country and find a job, new friends, and a roof over my head? The idea seemed impossible.

I wanted to be more like the travel bloggers that I followed online, but there was one thing stopping me from taking the plunge: Fear.
