Australia and New Zealand were the start of my international travels. Two places that take a long time to reach and have a lot to offer. Even from Hong Kong it's a long, eight hour flight to Sydney. I had plans to pick off some of the Pacific Islands with extended weekend trips but given the cost and travel time involved may need to make it a longer vacation. Hopefully this section is expanded soon.
I returned home from a trip to Australia and New Zealand and a head hunter called me - I said I'd switch jobs if I could travel internationally - he said I've got the perfect job, internal auditor. I started a new job and was in Ireland less than a month later.
