#13 Tips for planning your Australian holiday

  • Summary

  • When you get out there and explore, it really just reminds you why you moved. So, especially if you’ve been feeling a bit homesick, there’s nothing more exhilarating and exciting than pulling into a really beautiful new beach and remembering that you actually get to live here! Whenever I think to myself, I’m so lucky to live here, it’s so beautiful, I remind myself I’m not lucky. I just took action and did the hard thing, and this is the reward that we get.
