My friend and I finished Gymnasium (The equivalent of High School I would assume) this summer, we both took a year off to relax and work. Recently we've been talking about whether or not we should travel to a country we've never been to, while we have time, and hopefully money for it. Seeing as we'll both be starting University this autumn, now seemed like a pretty good time to do so.
We both feel the choice should be Australia, because it will be unlike anything we've ever experienced before in a variety of different ways.
So why have I come to MMO-champ with this nonsense? Well, seeing as this is an international forum with people from all over the world, I figured we could run into some pretty sound advice from someone.
Basically, what we're really concerned about is our economy, we both have a current budget of around 20k Danish Kroner (~3.500USD), and we're wondering if that is going to be enough. We would of course prefer a lot of leisure time, but I don't know if that is possible with the budget. Regarding the Visa we pretty much have two choices, it's possible, according to my research, to get a free tourst E-Visa where you are not allowed to do any sort of work. The other Visa is a tourst working visa, where you pay 2000 kr (~350USD) for a working Visa that is active for 12 months.
If the trip was to be purely for leisure we were thinking that we could stay for around 1-2 months, if the trip would be a mix of leisure and work we were thinking around 2-3 months.
Two quick and very general questions about Australia: Is the food expensive compared to Scandinavia, and how expensive is it to stay at hostels/hotels.
Hopefully you guys/girls were able to understand most of what I'm curious about, and you'll be able to share some advice/ some of your own experiences.
Thanks in advance!
