It has been two years since we were on that trip to Australia. I have been meaning to write this post ever since we got back from Oz but so many things have happened and so much has changed that I have taken my time with it. I have refreshed and updated the look of the blog and I mean to do regular updates on the subject of Australia, on our imminent move to the Lucky Country and in general my thoughts on some of the more interesting (to me) current events.
Australia had been a dream for a very long time, it has taken us a long time to finally make it and what we saw, what we experienced is difficult to put into words. It was an experience extraordinaire, a life changing experience in certain ways. We saw so much of Australia and yet only a very small part of this huge land, what we saw we liked… …a lot! We liked it so much that we actually started thinking seriously of moving there permanently. After our return home and my decision to leave my employer the way opened and it was mostly a matter of time.
I have not come across one person that was not enthusiastic or at least positive towards that far away island nation. I have travelled a lot and lived in different places, I believe that I am not naive. I know that there are, there must be, things that are not as perfect as they seem in Australia. I will find out in due time as I am going to spend the rest of my life there. That of course does not mean that I will go hunting to find the negatives but it goes to show you that Australia is seemingly a very exciting place with a positive outlook on life in general. That is in stark contrast to Germany, the quality of life here is at the highest level, yet the people seem to be more on the negative side of things, more on that though in a different post.
So here I go again, I will be again posting regularly hope you will enjoy and follow my posts.
