When I first ventured off on this journey 6 months ago, I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would end up in Australia. But here I am. I am in Australia!
After 2 weeks spent at home after my South America trip, I was more than ready to be reunited with my backpack again, and setting off on the next part of this adventure.
The past 2 nights I’ve spent at my friend Michael’s house, getting over my jet lag after 30 odd hours of traveling and 9 time zones of confusion to get me from South Africa to Australia. Michael’s family have been absolutely the kindest to me and I’m so grateful to have a place to get my bearings…but now it’s time to explore. It hasn’t even hit me yet that I’m actually in Australia because everything seems so normal. The shops are the same. The people are the same. The pubs are the same. No culture shock yet. But then again, I have just been hanging out in the suburbs. From tomorrow, the adventuring in Sydney begins.
