Briton wins "world's best job"


A British charity worker has won the so-called “best job in the world.”

For the next six months, Ben Southall, who’s 34 and from Hampshire in southern England, will be caretaker of an Australian tropical island. Now he just wants to celebrate with his girlfriend. Southall beat nearly 35-thousand other applicants from almost 200 countries for the 83-job promoting tourism in Queensland state. All he has to do now is explore the islands of the Great Barrier Reef and report via a blog – and if feels like it, feed the fish and clean the pool at his beach side resort.
