In 2009, I met with this travel consultant who explained to me that I needed $ 12000 Euros to secure a Working Holiday Visa in New Zealand or Ireland. I can’t begin to explain how my dream was crushed in a matter of minutes. I didn’t have that kind of money! I was earning roughly $ 3 USD per hour.
So, what did I do? I put a pin on my dream and thought well…this is not meant to be. I know this sounds like I gave up, and actually, that’s the truth. Even felt ashamed for having this desire: the urge for experiencing life overseas—but no money to make it happen. But it wasn’t just about the money, the real problem was I didn’t have a trusted source for genuine advice.
It wasn’t till almost 3 years after that day that I went on my first big overseas trip. Long story short, since I bridged that gap I’ve lived In Denmark for a year, got my Italian Citizenship, moved to New Zealand and visited 20+ countries.
