    Here's a bunch of shots from my first few weeks working as a guide on the Overland Track in Tasmania.

    If this is really what you get to live near, and make a living at walking around it every day. I am just going to give up now.

    To be fair, I do 6-day shifts of 6.30am to 11pm (99 hour weeks...), so it's not all fun and games. But yes, not a bad way to pay the bills :smile:
