My Office

My new "office"

is not in an open space,

but is rather an "open sky"!

My new colleagues are not too

loud or intrusive, they spend most

of their time to sleep (koalas!). 

The play room is, depending on the day, a beautiful beach, the rainforest or a waterfall,

not too bad!

Some Facts & Numbers...

So what

do you think? is that not better than Google's office?

 

 

 

 

Welcome

to my new "office",

the entire State of Queensland,

Australia.

My new boss? Mother Nature

and in Queensland, nature

is everywhere

and spectacular!

 

 

25%

Queensland makes up approximately 25% of the continent Australia, spanning 1,852,642 km2.

France fits into Queensland approximately 3 times. 

Surface area

It is Australia's fastest growing state, with 4.6 million people currently

calling it home.
 However, the density rate is not high:

only 2.61 inhabitants per km2

vs 97 in France and 52 in my region,

the Jura!

So, I shouldn't be bothered by people up there !!

Called the Sunshine State, with 300 sunny days a year!

I haven't chosen my destination

and my Best Job randomly!

Indeed, fed up with the Parisian grey weather and cold winters, I'm going to enjoy my six month!
