One year in Australia

It’s flown by but I’ve now been in Australia a whole year.

I can’t believe how different my life is now. I have a challenging job which is fulfilling and enjoyable, I live in a great part of a brilliant city and I have a wonderful girlfriend. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this happy.

Getting on the plane a year ago was pretty terrifying. I was sad to say goodbye to my family but it was an opportunity I was desperate to take. I’m thankful I had a good mate in Jordan waiting for me on the other side. I am super grateful to his family for all their help and support. I visited the UK for Christmas and loved seeing family and friends. Their happiness for me made me certain I’d made the right decision.

Australia and Sydney keep on surprising me. I have become immersed in Australian culture (believe me, look hard enough and it is there!) and I’m loving it more and more all the time as I adopt a new lifestyle and try new things.

I won’t go on about how great my life is because I know how tedious that is but I felt it necessary to put a few words down to mark the occasion.  Now maybe I’ll go out and treat myself to a schooner of something cold.
