G’day Australia…

I’d always planned on making my next blogging debut whilst I was on my travels however I’ve spent the majority of the past couple weeks too overwhelmed by the magic that is my life to stop and really document it. Never have I been one to live in the moment, I’m a sentimentalist and I appreciate scraps and images to remember my best days by. But when you’re surrounded by sites and landmarks you’ve only ever seen in pictures or movies, only ever contemplated as an unrealistic dream, there isn’t time to waste. No time to pick up your camera and experience it at a distance yet again, no time to miss out on socialising on the beach at night to jot down everything in your travel journal. So many of the travellers I’ve come across so far have taken a chilled afternoon on their busy itinerary to scribble down haphazard notes from weeks gone by. But I need to make an effort because all of this living is going to inspire, console and have me smiling in reminiscent bliss when I’m at my worst in the future.

So yeah I’m in Australia! and it is every bit as warm and sunny as I imagined. The harbour, the bridge, the botanical gardens, the art gallery, the beaches experiencing all of this has seemed like a hazy trance so far. I look back over the past couple weeks in awe because I’ve done more exciting things in those weeks than I did in the whole of last year, maybe even the whole of the last three years. I’m hoping to use this as a platform to share all of my future experiences, travelling and then hopefully living and working over here. If I can inspire just one other lost soul to take the leap and hop on the next possible flight I’d be over the moon.

  1. I am fortunate enough to live in Australia . But as a visitor to Sydney I found a whole new city to enjoy and explore. Sydney is an exciting place and the restaurants are brilliant. If you work it right you can move from happy hour to happy hour…I was fortunate enough to be there New Year’s Eve,only metres from the bridge. It was amazing. I actually had the experience of being proposed to that evening…
