There’s a gorgeous view to the Harbour from the top of the hill, so you can go there and enjoy it. The Gardens can be accessed by bus, train or ferry. You can see people walking around the Harbour front at the lower part of the gardens during lunchtime or jogging in the mornings as this place is full of people daily till sunset when it closes. Walking through the gardens and along the seawall is a great way to relax in Sydney. 3. Sydney Opera House One of the most recognizable buildings in Australia and why not in the world!

Working and Living Abroad – A Complete Guide

Today the world has become a global village and we are all free to choose where to live, study or work. Although it’s usually a rewarding experience, living abroad might be stressful if you haven’t considered all risks and responsibilities in advance.   Make a Research Before you buy a ticket or accept a job offer from an employer abroad, you should think of the safety and security issues in your destination country; the economic and political situation there, cultural and climate peculiarities as well as health and educational systems. This will help you determine the social environment you’ll be living in, and prevent you from an isolation. Also, try to calculate your costs abroad – the cost of living in your host country, how much you’ll need to spend on shipping, accommodation or tuition, take into account all duties, taxes and fees you’ll need to pay there.
