I have just moved into my new house and new area. I have moved from the beaches of the Eastern suburbs to the Inner West.
The two suburbs could not be more different. It is nice to be living in a house again with a garden but I am sure I will miss the beaches being just 10 mins away. Excited to see what I get up to this summer. Summer will be very different living near Newtown and having a boyfriend in Coffs…I expect a few weekends away up the coast on the cards.
I have two new housemates. I am finally mingling with the locals as one is Australian! The other is English and just moved out so we have another one who has just moved into the house and has been in Sydney about 30 seconds. A lot of change but I guess this why we leave home as the same old just didn’t suit.
Its nice to meet people who have just moved to Australia. I met a lad from Northern England on Saturday night in a bar and he was just so excited to talk to someone from home. He was also just full of excitement about starting his new adventure in Australia. He was listing all the places he wants to visit and asking me questions about the dreaded farm work. I think after the first 6 months into Australia you take living near a beach and having hot weather for granted. You take for granted all the amazing weekends up the coast, visiting Melbourne, drinks in the office on a Friday and how seeing the Sydney Opera House on your daily commute. It is only when you start talking to someone who has just landed look back on all the crazy nights and experiences you go through when living abroad and trying to start a new life. We are lucky to be out here and to have and experience all we do but we have also worked so hard and gone without a lot to stay and build a life out here in a foreign country.
After this weekend of lovely weather Id say Summer 2016/17 has begun…
