First blink of an eye at seven in the morning. A pastel yellow stripe mixes with the sky blue outside our window to a sunny day. Ice flowers entwine on the windows. For our little winter wellness break on the first Advent, we have chosen the Hotel Eisvogel in Bad Goegging, Lower Bavaria – and truly picture-perfect weather.

Away from home and yet feel at home, is written on the door. A promise kept from start to finish by the family hotel team: a plate of fruit and nibbles in the room (gingerbread, hmmm!), the loving decoration in the house, a lush landscape of pillows on the bed immediately give us a feeling of welcome. As well as the personal but unobtrusive attention of the staff. At the reception we are greeted by name and accompanied to the room with a short house tour.

The job search can be a real pain in the ass, in Australia as well as in Germany. Especially if you don’t know exactly how to apply and where to find potential employers. The slowly but steadily decreasing bank balance certainly does not help to make the situation more bearable, because you don’t want to have to fly back home because of financial problems. To help you out, here are a few tips for finding a job in Australia.

1) Job agencies

In Australia, there are countless job agencies that can find jobs in a wide variety of fields. From cleaning positions to jobs in the mine, they offer everything here and look for suitable applicants.

Breathtaking landscapes, countless geysers and wide fjords attract tourists from all over the world to the land of elves and trolls. However, anyone who wants to do an internship there will have a hard time. We have summarized the most important things at a glance.

In which areas can I do an internship in Iceland??

Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Only 340.110 inhabitants live on 103.000 km² area (for comparison: Germany has about 82.2 million inhabitants on 357.376 km²). Accordingly there is less choice on the job market. But since tourism is booming, there are always jobs available in hotels, inns, restaurants and farms. While the former usually involves service work, such as serving food or working at the front desk, farm work involves caring for animals or helping with household chores. Also pure horse farms offer these possibilities, but often only for longer stays. Volunteering may be a better alternative here.

A mobile vehicle in which you can also live and stay. Not necessarily it must be a classic motorhome. If you take a closer look, you will find more and more classic cars that have been converted into campers. Partly with regular equipment from the manufacturer, partly in affectionate work by the owners themselves prepared. Usually it is minibuses or vans that are used for the conversion. For the nomads living permanently in such vehicles, a separate term has now been established in the English-speaking world – vanlife.

That it does not necessarily have to be a bus for camping, however, I want to show in this overview article. Even an ordinary passenger car can be transformed into a genuine campervan without great financial outlay.
