Cairns, Australia: Working on a Banana Farm

As an Englishman, citizen, getting my hands on a one-year working holiday visa for Australia was straightforward. In fact, it took a grand total of around four hours. But, as I wanted to extend my visa for a second year, I had to complete three months of ‘regional’ work. In short, I had to find a […]
