Time does fly indeed! I can´t believe that it has been a year since we arrived in Australia!
I have grown accustomed to going to sleep to the sound of the flying foxes, who like to nibble the berries in the tree near my window, and wake up to the sound of the kookaburras and lorikeets.
I no longer find it strange when a possum or a bush turkey cross my path in the street or when an ibis approaches me in the park whenever I am having a snack.
I have started to shorten words and find myself saying brekkie, barbie, tradie, Woolies, Maccas, etc.
I have held a koala and I have patted and hand-fed kangaroos and wallabies.
I have celebrated Xmas in the summer.
I have eaten crocodile, emu and roo (short for kangaroo ;-p).
I have had picnics at the beach, barbies in natural parks, gone antique shopping , rummaged the city in search of the best coffee, and made some new friends.
Overall, it has been a crazy year. It has been though but rewarding. There still a long way to go until I can call Australia my home but I am getting there, slowly but surely 😉
Let the next year rock on!!!
