Exactly a week after finishing my final high school exam, I left my home in Melbourne for an adventure of a lifetime. It began with solo backpacking for two and a half months through almost all of South America. The beaches, the mountains, the rainforest, you name it. In order to replenish my now depleted bank account, I decided to go on Working Holiday in Canada with Global Work & Travel. I was 18, and I had a lot of the world to see.

My boyfriend and I had somehow managed to score the same day off together, and we knew we had to make the most of it by exploring the outskirts of Revelstoke. We thought, what better way to explore Revy in the middle of our first snowy winter, than to strip off and dive into a natural hot spring? St. Leon’s Hot Spring to be precise.

Hi! My name is Katie and I’m from the UK. I completed a law degree at Durham University in July 2019 and was certainly not ready to settle into a London office job. So, I researched opportunities for working abroad. A few google searches later and I got in touch with Global Work and Travel. One phone call and I was sold.
