My first Overseas trip was through the OVC and I had the time of my life. The bug had bitten. So I decided to change careers, from Civil Engineering and Drafting to Travel.
Having travelled quite a bit prior to the change, I knew I was making a change for the better. I have travelled to about 18 countries since then and I have experienced all types of accommodation and modes of transport, and have had the most wonderful experiences.
One of the highlights being the Hockenheim Formula 1 Grand Prix.
To work in the travel industry, you have to be passionate about travel, and after 11 years, I still love it.
Once the travel bug bites. It is watch out world. And like anything in life, it’s what you make of it.
My first experience with OVC was in 2012 when I decided I wanted to become an Au Pair in the USA. I got to travel all over the states, learnt new cultures, made friendships and developed a home away from home. It was truly the most amazing experience of my life, theres not a day that goes by where I dont think about my time in the States. It introduced the most precious people in my life and molded me into the person that I am today. I encourage everyone to travel and hope to inspire everyone with travel!
