We have both felt a certain pull towards Australia for many years and before coming here we did our homework rewatching Crocodile Dundee🐊 and reading “Most liveable places in the world”-lists (on which Australia always secure at least 3 spots).
We were drawn here thanks to pictures of perfect beaches and wonderful skylines. After more than a year down under we have experienced a lot more than that. There was a lot of things people didn’t tell us about this part of the world;
🐪 Feral camels - dying to see one in the wild!
🌊Freak waves - hoping not to experiencing one every time we go hunting rock pools!
🥪Vegemite - how could we possibly have known?
❄️Cold - It was supposed to be one big island of sunshine and hot sand. Nobody mentioned “Victoria” or “Winter in July”!
On the whole, Australia (and Australians in particular) has been a wonderful host and we couldn’t be happier with our time here so far!
Also, we are catching on to things like “chasing the sun” and “endless summers” - what a way to live!☀️🚌
