‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times’
Life is ironic more often than not. Have you noticed that the most exciting time of your life was not entirely filled with positive events and too much comfort? That it gets more fascinating when you’re offered new possibilities, choices, and more importantly, uncertainty? We long for happiness thinking it will be better later, when we’ll have that job, that person in our lives, or that home? Why not live in the now? Stop a bit along the way and you’ll notice just how much you’re enjoying yourself. From struggle comes growth and with a clear mind you might just discover that you surpassed yourself in matters that you didn’t even think of. I think it’s important to realize that change is progress, but for that, we need to be out of the comfort zone.
So while I was flying for about 22 hours, Australia – Romania, my mind was wandering about the most exciting time of my life, Australia. I’ve spent the last 6 months there but I never realized how much I evolved, travelling around, seeing places that I always dreamed of, being away from everything I once knew, writing about my travels and creating my own habits. Few of you know that I lived there with my boyfriend and because my visa didn’t allow me to work, I created this blog.
Our time there was brief, but it was enough to make him once more, and me for the first time, fall in love with the Australian spirit. Australia is a young country and you can feel it. I honestly can’t say which was my favourite thing about it, but I can sure enumerate some: the strong sun, the respect for nature(parks and botanical gardens everywhere in the city), people walking barefoot, the Southern Ocean, the amazingly beautiful landscape, its multiculturalism and the way people speak: breaky sounds better than breakfast and it seems like you don’t have to take yourself too seriously because nobody does.
