Mike and I have worked all over Australia and New Zealand in what I call the ULTIMATE working holiday! Enlighten Press has afforded us the most exciting 2 years of our lives! From sky diving to scuba diving, skiing to mountain climbing, we made the most of our weekends in every single place we ended up. We’ve stayed in rainforests, log cabins, tents and at the beach! We have had the time of our lives and also saved a lot of money even after all the fun activities!
