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.
