I’ve never showed you how we used to set our car to sleep so here is a time-lapse that shows more or less how we used to set our “home”!
In Goondiwindi our car used to be our accommodation, but not this time!
We were tired of sleep into our car, we needed a REAL bed with REAL blankets and REAL pillows.
So what did we do? We booked a room in a hotel during our working period.
Why didn’t we book a room before? Because is quite expensive and we need our money to eat and travel! But this time we didn’t care too much about the money, we knew that job would be only for four or five days so we could afford 3/4 nights in a hotel.
Finally a real sleep!
With a mini-bar too!!!
What was our next job?
If you thought about cleaning you were right!
Our next job was rubbish picking around Goondiwindi, Yelarbon and Inglewood; we had to pick up all the rubbish around the tip of every town and put them properly into the tip.
It was a very easy job, maybe it could look like a boring job but it wasn’t; our “boss” was a man from the Goondiwindi Regional Council and there were also a guy form Goondiwindi working with us, they were the perfect company!
Our boss was so nice; he was really friendly and he told us many many things about Goondiwindi area, he showed us many beautiful places; places were you can go and camping and also the “spinifex desert” near Yelarbon.
Also the guy told us many things about the insects and the animals in Australia and he showed us some REAL lizards and spiders and others that we found on the ground while we were picking plastic bags, plastic bottles and all the rubbish (the area was quite dirty).
It was like an adventure trip for us, we drove trough dirty streets through the nature, we learned so many things, like in a safari! That working experience was fantastic; the company was amazing and the nature too, we really enjoyed that job!
Also when we finished our job (after four days) we kept in contact with our boss and our new friend; we went camping with them and it was so funny. We still be in contact, waiting to meet each other again!
To see how was our adventure between the rubbish watch the video below!
We were waiting since two days for an answer from the agency and finally they told us that there was work for us in Goondiwindi!
We left Moree immediately to go back in our “home town” and discover what would be our next farm job, it was a miracle to find another job in just three days!
When we arrived we were excited to discover our new job.
Do you wanna know what kind of job it was?
I think you can guess it.
After that we cleaned all the quarters we started to realise that in that farm there wasn’t a job for us because every day we had to ask what to do and every time the answer was “wait for me” or something like that.
We went back to the workshop for cleaning some tractors and some cars for a while, then we had to go to the boss’s house to clean it! Yes; for two days we clean the second house of the boss, we fixed little things in the rooms and we put in order everything.
In that farm everybody used to work for 10 hours per day, but we finished our work in 5 hours on the first day! There was a man with us who was supposed to have a look at our work and make sure that we work properly, but he said that we were too fast! So we got 5 hours paid without doing nothing and the second day was the same, but finally something happened…
As I promised here are the photos, I’m sorry for the delay but I have very good news now, and more time to write so stay tuned!
Here is how the quarters when we arrived
And here is our work
I don’t wanna publish any photo of the toilet, but trust me; it was the worst part to clean!
***I’m really sorry but now I’ve realised that I made a quite big mistake: this post is to be read before the post “deep cleaning”. I’m sorry for that but it’s quite hard to focus sometimes after a big day at work! ***
We got up in the morning and we were happy to start our day driving the forklift.
It was a quite warm morning, we worked until lunch time, then when we finished Garcy came to us with another job for us; clean all the place where we were working and then start cleaning the quarters.
What a surprise!
Well cleaning is an easy job so for us it was good, even if drive a forklift was funnier.
We started cleaning the quarters late in the afternoon with just some detergent and some tatters, we started cleaning the kitchen … it was dirty everywhere, EVERYWHERE!
