I moved from the UK to Australia but no one warned me about this huge problem: ‘I wouldn’t have come if I knew’

A British traveler revealed the one thing no one warned her about when it came to Australia: and it has nothing to do with spiders or aggressive kangaroos.

Faye has been Down Under for several months on a work visa and recently encountered the reality of flying in remote Western Australia.

She was so upset that she admitted that if she had known about the “ruthless” insects, she might not have left her home country at all.

The traveler now wears a net over her face everywhere she goes to try to make her experience more bearable.

“Everyone says you should apply for the working holiday visa and move to Australia, travel there because that’s the best thing you can do. People told me to be careful of spiders, snakes, crocodiles, sharks and kangaroos. They said the koalas would be cute,” she said.

“But you know what no one talks about? All flies. No one warned me about this.’

Faye continued to bash the pesky insects, despite heaping praise on the ‘stunning’ scenery.

“I probably wouldn’t have come if I knew this was a reality,” she admitted.

‘I’m in Karijini National Park, it’s absolutely breathtaking. One of the most beautiful places I have seen in Australia.

‘But this is the reality. I have to wear this net over my head because they won’t stop.’

She couldn’t believe how intense the pests were.

‘These flies are ruthless. They are not like English flies. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: They don’t give you a break,” she said.

'I'm in Karijini National Park (pictured) - it's absolutely beautiful.  One of the most beautiful places I have seen in Australia,” she said

Fans were quick to share advice about her viral post.

‘That’s the Outback. If you don’t like flying, stick to the forests, the mountains or the coast,” said one.

‘I’m not sure how long you’ll be staying, but it might be worth looking into citronella soap; it’s meant to repel flying insects!’ another recommendation.

‘YES! Can also happen in Sydney. I’ve seen people in the city with their backs covered in flies!’ revealed a man.

“And the rest of the world wonders why we like our huntsman spiders,” said one.
