The Best Job in the World

This was in the news today.

The tourism board of Queensland, Australia has posted what's being called "the best job in the world". The job pays US$105,000 for a six-month contract to be the "Caretaker of the Great Barrier Reef". Basically, you get to swim and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, walk the white sand beaches, and the only "work" is to write a blog with photos and videos about your experiences.

In addition to the salary, you get to live rent-free in a beachhouse with a golf buggy, and you get free airfare from your home to your "workplace".

You can read the details and apply for the job here http://www.islandreefjob.com. Applications are due on February 22nd. Don't worry about competition from me, because as much as I'd love to spend six months playing in the azure waters and blogging from there, I'd miss shoveling my driveway.

HEY! Fun to find each other in the blog world! Hireq and Patah DID get some of those gifts under the tree of course! They loved it-mostly just drinking the water out of the tree stand!

P.S.
Thank you for inspiring the magnet for CHristmas this year. When I talked to Yan over the summer he said an updated address was needed-thus the creation! THANKS!
