Moving Overseas

Recently my partner went overseas for work and decided to stopover in London for a week. He started looking at house prices and calculating living expenses just to see how it differs from Australia.

We had spoken about moving overseas for a few years to work and see how the other half live though it never felt so real, like we would actually do it. I’m currently in a great position at work and the thought of leaving makes me feel ill.

The move could benefit us in our careers in so many ways, though it could also set us back…you know the general pros and cons la la la.

Have you moved overseas before? Did you love it or hate it? Should I just say what the heck lets go?!

Tell me your thoughts!


Local Love.

I grew up in a small town close to the beach where each day you would smile and say hello to anyone and everyone, this is something I’ve always missed since moving to the city.

I currently live in the inner west and absolutely adore where I live, but the one thing I miss is that local love. 

Today I realised something amazing – I have created the local love myself. Walking home from the station each day I wave at the local cafe. Getting my coffee in the morning and having the daily chats with the cafe owners. Even just the fact that they know my coffee order (piccolo) now! 

I think if we all just put in a little effort to converse with people it makes all the difference.

Do you have local love in your big city?
