Sorry for the lack of content the last few months. We’ve been working our hospitality butts off to save money for the last leg of our Aussie adventure. We finish work on the 1st June, have a month left in Australia to explore, fly to Bali on the 4th July and then homeward bound from there. So 68 days of travel left then… Awesome.
As homesick as I was during the first few months out here, going home now feels so bittersweet.
Obviously I’m looking forward to seeing my family and friends, but we have completely fallen in love with Australia.
We have a life in Melbourne, we have jobs and friends and a house. We have friends up in Brisbane and Batlow and Canberra.
We haven’t even had time to explore the Northern Territories or West Coast or Tasmania yet.
I can’t help but feel there is so much more to do and see out here, and I’m terrified we’re going to go home, set up our lives again and regret all the things we didn’t do.
I’m torn though, because on the other hand I’m really looking forward to having a house to call our own and decorate.
I’m excited to start my own business (I’ve dreamed about it the whole time I’ve been in Australia and have been so inspired out here, watch this space!)
I can’t wait to have nights out with my girlfriends, spa trips with my mum, family games nights and wine drinking sessions with the people I’ve missed so much in the last year.
I’ve started looking into places I want to visit around Europe and have already planned a few trips with my best friends including Christmas markets in Berlin and spring in New York.
I know that the wanderlust in me will never die and I’m going to continue to make travel a priority in my life. I believe you really can ‘have it all’ and that’s what I’m going to work my ass off to achieve. I’m going to have my own house, my own business, my own family and be well travelled. I’m not fussed about being wealthy, and as long as we’re sensible with money and work and savings I know we can do this.
I also know that in a couple of years, Australia will still be here and we will 100% be back to finish what we started.
