One Man Walking

And now for something completely different

February 4th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Since November I have been, and continue to be, happily employed at a scientific institute in Auckland, New Zealand as one of their software developers. It’s a world away from the daily marathons I walked across Japan, struggling to understand and be understood. No more fascinating local customs or idiosyncrasies pick up on (though our team does cover a nicely varied background), no more hunting around for a place to sleep or comparing foods by their calories to Yen ratio. But I just heard about an oppourtunity I couldn’t let pass me by. Queensland Tourism is looking for an island caretake (read: promotional agent/blogwriter etc) to live on Hamilton Island for six months. Applications are done by way of videos and this is mine. I’d appreciate you taking the time to watch it and vote. It’s only 1min long and it’d really change my life in a crazy and most welcome way.

    I dont normally do this, but I felt compelled to comment on your video entry for The Worlds Greatest Job! Just wanted to say that I think you are one of the best candidates Ive seen yet, amongst many. Your site is also inspiring & I wish I had been one amongst the others to meet you during your exploration. I am also creating a video application myself, however, If I am unable to enjoy the spoils of such a rewarding adventure then I hope sincerely that you are successful and wish you luck! ;)
