Hi, my name's Sarina and I'm on a Working Holiday visa in Canada with The Global Work & Travel Co.
They have beenamazing.
I honestly don't know how I could have done any of this without their help.
When I was first coming over I was really nervous and scared and Ididn't know.
I had so many doubts, like I don't know if I really want to do it.
Whatif I get over there and last a week and then I've just wasted all this moneyon nothing.
Trust me, you're gonna last more than a week.
I've been here for seven months now.
I am in Ontario, working at the JWMarriott as a front desk agent.
This is my staff accommodation that I'mliving in and that's my balcony right there.
My room's right in front of it andthis is my backyard.
How awesome! I've experienced summer, autumn and now winter here, and they've all been amazing.
When I first got here Ispent a couple of days in Vancouver before heading out here and that wascool.
I met someone and they took me on a motorbike ride up to Whytecliff inVancouver and that was awesome.
I went to Stanley Park there and I rodebikes around and I was being the biggest tourist and it was a lot of fun.
Then I came out here in the summertime and were surrounded by lakes andeverything's really cool.
I spent all my time at the lakes.
I picked upwakeboarding.
I did a lot of things – I met so many people and you go out like everyweekend, you party, you go lay out in the sun.
There's just so much to do andit has been amazing.
I met so many great people, they've all made my time hereamazing and even if you feel like you're alone, you not really.
You'realways surrounded by people if you leave and staff accommodation, I definitelyrecommend it.
Then you've also got The Global Work & Travel Co.
thatare always an email or phone call away depending where you are.
Maybe they'rein your town, then you can go and visit them in the office in Vancouver.
I've been able to cross things off my bucket list as well.
So I've goneto Toronto, I saw an ice hockey game and The Leafs won! Then I went tothe CN Tower and that was awesome – amazing view.
I went to Toronto Zoo, Ialso made a trip to Niagara Falls, so you do get time off.
You get to travel aswell, you're saving money and travelling.
What more could you want?!Yes, I went to Niagara Falls and because I work with the Marriott, I got acheap room, I got upgraded and I had an amazing Falls view and then Idid the journey behind the Falls as well.
That was really cool.
I spent a coupleof days there and then went back to Toronto and then came back here and started working again, saving money up.
I love it here.
I never thought of coming here butI'm so glad I did.
It is amazing, absolutely amazing.
It's sobeautiful and then being here I've saved up enough money to travel.
I'm alsoplanning on going to Whistler for a couple of weeks and then I'm heading toCosta Rica with The Global Work & Travel Co.
They're helping me again todo volunteer work in Costa Rica with turtle conservation, so that's reallygoing to be cool.
I can't wait for that.
It's gonna happen in a couple ofmonths and then I'm going to come back here and work again for the summer.
Then, I'm going to travel America until I finally go home and then probably jointhem again and do something else and volunteer.
I love volunteering so Iwant to do that.
So yeah, The Global Work & Travel Co.
, I definitely recommendthem – 100%! They're always there for you – a phone call, email away.
They help youevery step of the way.
I don't know how I could have done it without them, I wouldhave been a complete mess.
I wouldn't have known what I was doing or where I was going.
They get you a job like that, it's really cool.
The Global Work & Travel Co.
, definitely recommend them and Canada is awesome! Beautiful place, definitely go there.
