I have had the joy of packing everything I have accumulated in just under two years into boxes in order to ship it all home. I knew I had a lot of clothes and souvenirs to send home but I didn’t know how many boxes and what size I would need to send it back to Sydney.
What can you do when you have less than two full days in Berlin you may ask? I did not have a stopover in Berlin but I had booked on my two days off from work to go to Berlin for a concert. I believe if you have a time restriction on how long you are in a city than you need to be organised. Continue reading Less than 36 hours in Berlin

I have always wanted to do this but never dedicated enough time for it. With getting myself ready to ship my boxes home I thought now is the best time to do it. I plan to complete writing the 365 notes and then I ship it home and along with all my other possessions when I finally open the jar I will have something interesting to share with my family and it will prompt many a conversation on what I have written.
Sorry I haven’t posted anything for a couple of days but my life had become extremely busy. This is just a quick update on what has been happening.

If you asked, a man what is inside their wives/girlfriends/sisters or female friends bags you will most likely receive the answer the kitchen sink. This got me thinking what do I always carry with me and do I really need these items or is it like my safety blanket. Continue reading Looking in my bag
This post is looking back on my steps to the big move to the UK.
10/0713 – I started counting down to the “big move” it was 2 months until my flight to the other side of the world to start an unforgettable adventure.
It seems so surreal that I only had 2 months left with my family and friends in Sydney. There was still plenty of things I wanted to do before I moved to London.
12/07/13 – I sent off my visa application, I was extremely nervous when sending this off, that I gave it a good luck kiss. I placed the envelope in the mail and just hoped for the best. It was going to be a long two week wait, to find out if I was granted my visa.
23/07/13 – I picked the mail up from the post office. Amongst the mail was an express post letter addressed to me. I was extremely excited but nervous what it contained inside. I opened the envelope but found only my passport inside. I was confused there was nothing else with my passport letting me know if I was granted my visa, on closer inspection I found my visa stamped inside. It was official I had a VISA to work and live in the UK.
My visa was a Tier 5 – Youth Mobility Visa, it was a two year visa that allowed me to live and work in the UK but I could also enter and exit the country with no restrictions. Of course being the smart young adult I was when applying for my visa, I did not know when the start date should be for my visa. I chose my birthday, September 11 as I thought it would be a good change for me to start living in a new country for a fresh start on my birthday.
