After the deep embraces at the airport, plus the 15 hours of flight, the long wait at the airport in Chile, I finally landed in Sydney. Yes, I was already on the other side of the world, where I wanted to be. I arrived with a Working Holiday visa that allowed me to stay there for one year, dragging my suitcase, my dreams and my fears. There I received Argentinian hugs, familiar ones, schnitzel with mashed potatoes, flavours of home [...]

“Leaving to create myself”

It took me a long time before making a final decision. Yes, I wanted to travel, grab my back pack and jump. But for what reason? Why? It was the first of March 2015 when I took the first step in this whole journey that I am telling you today, two years later, with many goals fulfilled and new plans on my mind. That’s how it all started. "In 20 years you will be more disappointed by the things you [...]

“Our destiny is not a place, but a new way of looking at things”

Hi! I am Dolores, I am 31 years old and I come from the Cordoba Argentina. I would like to tell you about my travelling experiences around Australia, about what every one of us has felt when embarking on such a trip.

My adventure in Australia – Fernanda’s story

My name is Fernanda and I am 28 year old. I was born in the South of Brazil, in a city called Porto Alegre, but for seven years I lived in Rio de Janeiro, the famous “wonderful city”.

Is it worth leaving everything for the Australian dream? Claudia’s story

In all groups and blogs where I am participating at the moment, a lot of people ask me if it’s worth leaving everything to experience Australian life. Every time I see this question a lot of things come to my mind: the life I had in Brazil, the money I’ve spent, the difficulties at the beginning of my life in Australia, my family and friends back home, everything that I’ve learned here and everything I’ve seen and experienced. To be [...]

Ariel’s story

I am 23 years old, and I come from Fray Bentos, a little city on the west coast of Uruguay, in South America. Here, if you speak good English, you have more and better job opportunities, so I decided to study the language. I soon realised however, that the classes I was taking were not going to be enough. If I wanted to really learn, I needed to travel to an English-speaking country. I had been thinking about this idea, [...]

Learning English in Australia has changed my life

In Brazil I was studying pharmacy when I decided to have a break in my life to improve my English, and since then a lot of good things have happened to me. Like many students, I never thought about studying English in Australia, but after a lot of research I decided to come here principally for the weather, which is similar to Brazil and because of the wonderful landscapes. I was fascinated with the lifestyle in Sydney, it is so [...]

“Everything started in bed” Pablo’s story

When someone asks me how everything began, the answer is simple, and a little naughty, romantic and spiritual at the same time: “In bed”. Like many other important things in life, for me everything started there. This is the moment when I get full attention from my inquirer, who looks at me with an intrigued face, trying to figure out if it’s a joke, or a philosophical treatise taken from one of the chapters of the Guide for the Perplexed.
