I’m Sam. As you may have guessed, I’m a Brit living in Australia. Brisbane, to be precise. Several years ago, in rainy London, I fell for the charms of an Aussie bloke…and, the rest as they say, is history.
I’ve been in Australia for almost 18 months now. Recently, I had a lightbulb moment! I realised my experiences could help others. You see, moving to Australia isn’t a simple process. There’s the visa. The shipping of all your beloved junk. The farewell at the airport. There’s the homesickness. The magic of being in a new country. The rehab you’ll need when you discover Kmart. And, of course, there’s the matter of knowing which sunscreen to use so you don’t burn to a crisp.
I’m here to guide you through that. Kind of like the least drunk friend on a big night out.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts, my feelings, and my random ramblings on life down under. Whether you’re thinking of making the big move, have already done it, or you’re just a little curious – this blog is for you. There’s also a great big dollop of Brisbane in here – what to see, what to do, and where to be.
