UberEats Lockdown Day 3/3

We’re finally here. Day 3 of 3. If you haven’t read the other blogs about UberEats refer to Day 1 and Day 2 too. Otherwise read on about the final day delivering UberEats during Brisbane’s lockdown and how much I earnt! Instead of coffee today begins with beetroot… Apparently it goes together with cycling and food delivery just as much as coffee does. Let’s talk about the deliveries and the final earnings. Signing on this morning and for the first time the UberEats app asks me to take a selfie with my mask on. It’s not that I support maskContinue reading “UberEats Lockdown Day 3/3”

UberEats Lockdown Day 2/3

Good morning! As always we’ll start the day with coffee. Straight black. “All the Euros drink Espresso”. After coffee we’re going to deliver somewhere else. We’re leaving delivery jobs in the suburbs of Brisbane. Instead – we’re going to do what the foreigners do – head straight to the CBD. Brisbane City that is. Let’s take a look at how the day went. Haven’t read DAY 1? Click here: https://jaiven.travel.blog/2021/01/08/ubereats1-3/ Heading into the city this morning I knew from the map there wouldn’t be boosts. Which is fine. I was however hoping for frequent jobs within a short distance. I’veContinue reading “UberEats Lockdown Day 2/3”

UberEats Lockdown Day 1/3

It’s a slow Friday morning. I’m avoiding logging in to my “regular job” after a busy week. Overcast clouds, a little rain and a perfect coffee in hand set the morning’s mood. “Mate, are you watching the news? Bro. We’re locking down for 3 days. COVID”. So you guessed it – I did the UberEats thing. Scroll down to see my earnings. 😃 Sydney and Melbourne copped most of the brunt in Australia. Brisbane, until now has been spared. But still, we’ve all learnt enough from the prior panic buying of Yester-year. A 3 day lockdown? This can only meanContinue reading “UberEats Lockdown Day 1/3”

Lithuania: Palanga, Kaunas and Vilnius

Planning to travel through the Baltic States? I skipped the typical Baltic Cruise option and instead travelled by road from Estonia, through Latvia and into Lithuania. This is my experience visiting 3 destinations in Lithuania (Palanga, Kaunas and Vilnius) and why I’d recommend travelling in the opposite direction. Let’s begin! Viljandi, Estonia to Palanga, Lithuania: 500 Ks Our journey begins departing Viljandi, Estonia for the first destination – Palanga, #Lithuania. The first part of the drive was fine. I mean, the very first part. The bit through Karksi-Niua’s rolling hills, open fields and eventually over the border to #Latvia. Initially,Continue reading “Lithuania: Palanga, Kaunas and Vilnius”

Cyprus and The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus

1 October 2019. Today #Cyprus celebrates its independence. The other week, a wedding invitation saw me flying to Paphos. I’d never planned to visit Cyprus and so I’d not given it much thought. As I read about Cyprus I soon realised I was in for an interesting trip. I wondered if Cyprus is part of Europe or Greece. What’s Turkey got to do with Cyprus? How does Cyprus have a UK connection? What’s Cyprus like? Cyprus is a culturally Greek (partly Turkish) Mediterranean island in the Middle East. Lebanon, Israel, Syria and Turkey are all geographically closer to Cyprus thanContinue reading “Cyprus and The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus”

Estonian e-Residency & TRP

If you’re non-EU and looking at applying for a D Visa / TRP or you’re curious about about Estonia’s eResidency this post is for you. These days I travel between Australia and Europe every year.
