I've Got Some News...
I'm Moving To Melbourne
So, it’s just over three weeks until I'm off for a little Aus adventure.
The past month has been a whirlwind; between working, interviews, blogging, visiting family, beginning to sort through EVERYTHING I own...the move is just about hitting home. I wanted to take this opportunity to share what I'm doing with you - I'll be heading to the city at the end of November, where I have a month to settle in before starting a new job (eek!).
Things have seemed a bit crazy as of late and I've neglected this little corner of the internet more than I would like. But having had a chance to recoup - and redesign my site - ahead of the move there is lots more I want to share with you. I’d like to take you with me on the move - I’ll be doing a travel diary of sorts, letting you know any challenges I come up against, guides on what to do in Melbourne, if expectations meet the reality, and what life is like for a Brit Down Under.
Deciding to move has caused a real mixture of emotions. I love my friends, family, current job and people I work with, so it's not been easy. But ultimately I'm ready for a new experience. Despite visiting Australia last Christmas, I haven’t actually been to Melbourne before. Needless to say, I am outside of my comfort zone - but they say you should do something to scare yourself every day. That I am.
I had a mild panic (there's been a few) the other day as I realised I only have a luggage allowance of 23kg. How on earth I'm going to fit my life into 23kg is beyond me - I struggle to adhere to that on a one week holiday as it is (lol). The next few weeks are going to be fairly busy, but I'm really excited to share my experience along the way with you. <3
If anyone has any tips or recommendations in the meantime, please send them my way! :-)
