Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?
My life has recently been flipped upside-down (quite literally) as I now live on the other side of the planet… Once again.
For those who are unaware, I was born and raised in England, and I moved to Australia when I was 12. When I lived in Australia, I always felt as though I belonged to another place. Every time I would visit England on “holiday” over the past 10 years, I would be completely overwhelmed by how much more it felt like home to me than Australia.
Long story short, I decided to follow my gut. I gave away 95% of everything that I owned, packed 3 suitcases filled to the brim, and flew across the world.
It’s been an incredibly challenging, eye-opening and interesting adventure to move to another country completely on your own.
It teaches you more about yourself than you’ve ever known, because at the end of the day, you’re all you’ve got.
I took my gorgeous little pug, Beans (you can click here to see her cute little face), along to the UK with me. There was no way I was ever going to leave her behind.
I turned a blind eye to the incredibly high price tag to transport her over, because her being here is the most important thing to me.
As long as she was on this journey with me, that’s all that mattered.
It’s almost been 2 months since the big move, and I think that I have experienced every single human emotion within those few weeks… I’ve had my bad days, my fantastic days, my crying-into-my-pillow-days, and my crying from laughing too hard days. It’s definitely been a rollercoaster of emotion, but it has also taught me so many things.
Not knowing anyone around me, I have a lot of alone time these days. I’d love to use that alone time by being creative through writing, taking photos and recording videos, and that’s where the re-birth of this blog came from.
I hope you’re looking forward to all of my blog posts that are to come, and I promise to you – I will blog as much as my fingertips allow me too this time!
