    In Austrialia or somewhere like that?

    Really wanting to go for something like 3-6 months. I know you need a working holiday visa but that's about all I know.

    Do you try and get a job sorted before you go out?

    How much would you need not including the flights? If your planning on working.

    I did 3 first was stocking the shop up as you come out of pirates of the Caribbean and then letting people onto the rock n roller coaster and than I did the same thing at the tower of terror. Only one person had the same job the whole summer. We all moved about a lot.

    Yeah. Would be a good experience to live and work in another country, even just for a small amount it time.

    Worked in San Francisco for 3 months as a removal man. Was good craic. Didn't bother getting a working visa though, just went over on a holiday visa and then changed the return date of my flight when I was there.

    Been in Australia just over 12 months on the working holiday visa recently applied for residency which I knew that was always going to be the case, so on a bridging visa at the moment.
    Work is out there and there is enough of it but you need to find it. I have been working full time the last year almost no problems.
    Spent 800 getting here and you 'need' I think 5 grand to support yourself initially which the border can make you prove you have, but I have never heard anyone being pulled in over it.
    Life is good. One week into spring and 2 weekends on the bounce at 21 and 22 deg. Cant complain! Cant wait to come home at Christmas for the month though just booked the flights today buzzing for it already.

    Been working in canada for roughly 18 months same as above applied for my residency i was brought over by my company to get my visa i needed to prove i had money in my bank but tbh if youre bein sponsored by a company this doesnt really matter its mainly to deter people moochin off of their gov! My sis is on a working holiday visa in canada also and she found a job on a summer/winter resort easy enough. Depends what your looking for but in my little part of the world in the summer it gets to roughly +35 in the summer and roughly -35 in the winter but apparently i live on the coldest part of the planet in winter time :56: not all of canada gets that cold btw

    As for money mate a couple grand to keep you tickin over. Unless uve already set up a job
