Of course, when you get back from a trip where you’ve been to 6 countries and 10 cities in a month, people inevitably want to know which place was your favourite. Sometimes it’s hard to choose, e.g. I always struggle when people ask this about Australia because there are so many places I loved for different reasons. However, when it came to answering this about my Balkans trip it was easy and obvious. My favourite country was Bosnia & Herzegovina. This answer surprised a lot of people, who obviously expected the more obvious Croatia or Montenegro to be my choice. What can I say? I loved Bosnia and Herzegovina and these are just a few of the reasons why.
It’s true that we were rather ambitious thinking that we could fit everything into 3 days in New York, however we did manage to see almost everything that we set out to in that time. It wasn’t a relaxed trip by any means, which you’ll soon see once you see our itinerary but it shows that it is possible to do it if you’re short on time!
One of the best ways to be able to fund your travel abroad is to go on a working holiday. Getting a Working Holiday Visa will grant to entry to a country for a specific period of time and also give you the right to work legally. That means that you can earn the money you need to fund your travels while you’re there.
As you will have gathered from the title, this guide is written with my knowledge of having completed a working holiday in Australia so some of it, such as recommendations and costs, will be specific to the country. However the general advice can be applied for a working holiday pretty much anywhere or might even be useful if you’re about to move abroad for the first time.
