European expat shares why living in Australia is ‘so chill’ and laidback

Expat claims working is ‘fun and chill’ in Australia despite having two jobs at the same time: ‘In Belgium if you’re late you’re fired’

  • An expat living in Australia was shocked by how ‘chill’ her two jobs are 
  • Saar, from Belgium, is currently working in Port Macquarie in New South Wales 
  • Saar claims she can show up ‘whenever’ and her work doesn’t mind 
  • In the TikTok Saar said she ‘loves’ living Down Under because it’s ‘stress-free’ 

A European expat living in Australia has praised the ‘stress-free’ lifestyle and work culture.

Saar, from Belgium, is currently working two jobs in Port Macquarie and claims she can show up to one ‘whenever’ suits her.

In a TikTok video the traveller said: ‘I love Australia sooo much. I get it now, I get why people go here to do the work and travel thing, because working here is so f***ing chill.’ 

Saar admitted she’s not sure if this laid-back attitude at work is the same across the country, but she described both jobs as ‘so chill’.

‘For example, with my second job, I can’t be there at the time they want me to because of my first job,’ she said in the clip. 

‘And they’re just like ‘Yeah come in whenever, if you are ready with your first job then you can just come in, it’s fine’.’ 

She went on to compare the relaxed attitude Down Under to the work culture in Belgium. 

‘In Belgium if you can’t be on time for your job, you will no longer have a job,’ Saar said. 

‘So thank you Australia for showing me that life can be fun and not stressful. I really love it here.’
