Work no issue for first-time backpacker
IT’S Corrado Giradi’s first time travelling outside of Europe and it was a very exciting moment for the 27-year-old Italian.
Looking for work has been no problem at all for Mr Giradi, who worked in a winery as an operator before coming to Mundubbera less than two weeks ago.
“I just got to Mundubbera not long ago and I’m searching for a job. I worked in the packing shed but I prefer working in an open space with nature,” he said.
“Here in Australia you can decide where you work, so if you don’t like where you work, you can quit and look elsewhere.”
Mr Giradi believes the people in Mundubbera and throughout the North Burnett were polite and friendly.
“All the people I’ve met are polite and courteous, it’s great to share moments with them,” he said.
“I’ll be here until mid-September and then I will go to Sydney because I have a friend of mine from Italy who will move to Australia and live here for good.
“We didn’t say goodbye when we were in Italy and now I’ll catch up with him when I head there next month.”
Mr Giradi has been improving his English and feels as though he has gained a lot of confidence.
“I feel comfortable speaking English as I use it all the time, I feel as though I’m in my safety zone,” he said.
Mr Giradi’s visa expires in March 2018 and from there he will be heading back to Italy before making plans to one day return to Australia to see his friends and family.
