To Australia I Go…

Did I just book a one-way ticket to Melbourne, AUS for next week?!

Why yes, yes I did.

I leave New Zealand (and the remaining six months of my working holiday visa) in less than 7 days… departing from the infamous Auckland International Airport that first welcomed me to the country as a timid, emotionally disheveled newborn traveler. I battled with myself for the past week deciding on whether or not I should stick out the remaining months of my NZ visa.

But I knew. I just knew. I was meant to be somewhere else by this time (which is now).

Moral of my story?

When the heart knows what it wants, it knows. Don’t ignore it.

If something isn’t making you happy, then change it.

I will always love New Zealand, but for the time being, Australia is calling me… and I couldn’t be more excited to move to another country sooner rather than later.

More updates to come on my past escapades around South Island… for the time being, my dreams about Melbourne will soon become reality when I get to live, eat and breathe everything in a couple days.

I've never been more in love with a city...

  1. Melbourne is simply amazing! I loved wandering the streets and eating all the delicious food. Go to Queen Victoria Markets for a mouth-watering fresh produce market 🙂


        1. As much as I’m itching to keep moving on… I’m totally okay with chilling here for a bit and working :p
