I’m back and I felt so at home already in the airport of Sydney.
I’d chosen to take a night flight because it was cheap but even though I’d three seats to my disposal I got very little sleep. Therefore I’ve used two days to try and get into sync again 😀 but I’m here and I’ll stay now for 5-6 months and this is so wonderful.
The first day I went for a walk to Bondi Beach to get some food and I was recognized by the store owner from Bitebox. That felt amazing to get waved at, get a good talk and get a box with meat and vegetables. Then I went to the neighbour shop my favorite and got a fresh made melon juice. After that I went right down to the beach and just sat there and ate.
Guys I’m home 😀 it’s funny how many people say that their place/house/four walls are their home. For me it’s where my heart is and Bondi is where my heart is and no matter where I’ll end up living Bondi is my home and I’m a Bondi girl 🙂
And to make it even more adventurous while I was eating all hell broke loose for the lifeguards and they had to save two teenagers in very bad shape and they did as usual an amazing job. Most of it I know from the news because I’ll never join the ring of death unless it’s somebody I know getting saved.
In these days I stay at a hostel close to the beach so when I go to the roof top I get an amazing view over the ocean. One of these days when the weather is good I’ll go up there and do some whale watching.
I’m using my days on getting settled and getting ready for school which starts Monday at 9 am. Therefore I’ve been shopping a little – looking at places to stay – looking at job agencies – making my CV – you know all the boring stuff 😀
Tonight I’ll reward myself and get food from my favorite restaurant and the best thing is it’s big portions of quality food for cheap money.
I’ve experienced so much from I left Darwin and arrived in Sydney and I’ll about it in due time but the internet here is slow so I’d to wait until all my pictures was backed up before beginning to edit with them.
I arrived in Sydney Wednesday and have been busy spending my time with exercising, spending time with Fuzz on Bondi Beach and finding information for my future.
The sun is very strong in the morning so got my first sun burn from the chest and up even with 50+. The bnb I’m living in is so nice and relaxed and I love my butterfly/flower bed.
But! I had to make this post because these last days I’ve had some really amazing experiences:
- Friday I was on the SUP board again and I didn’t fall into the water at all and there were waves = major progress in body control and strength – woo hoo
- yesterday I wanted to buy a juice and it was a cash only place so while I went to an ATM a lady paid for my juice.
- I learned that it’s pretty easy to get a student visa here in Australia, so tomorrow I’m going to Sydney to talk to three schools that teaches academic english. If I’m accepted I’ve a place to stay already.
- I got my new swim suit today and it fits perfectly
- today my flat mate told me to use her spices so I don’t have to buy new ones.
- today I took a day off from boot camp and I’ve been working on my pictures and especially on starting my little side business on redbubbles selling my pictures and designs. Therefore I’m begging for help to spread the word. You don’t have to buy anything but please help me promote my stuff.
- I’ve found three organic shops in Bronte/Bondi where I live and spend most of my time.
Things are lucking a little brighter so I’m very happy and grateful.
It has been a long day and to day my Pro life action was to give stuff away and I love the smiles from these people. It’s all worth it.
Tomorrow day 6 I’ll compliment people around me 🙂
I hope you’re joining me so we can get a wave of kindness started 🙂
Today I didn’t have time to announce what I wanted to do before so I’ll tell you what I’ve done. Today I’ve given away a lot of stuff to people who was so grateful for getting a little hand in their life. At the same time I helped myself because I needed to get the stuff out of my house.
Tomorrow I’ll give five strangers compliments.
Today I’ll have a quiet day and the only thing I’ve to do is to go to the city to do one little thing, so therefore today my “pro life action” will be to write a message to a handful of cyber friends that has supported my thought the years and thank them for their support. People I haven’t met.
It has been 7 extreme days according to the world. People have been killed, terrorism, hostages etc., so to spread love and gratitude I’ll from today work on getting better to show gratitude, positivity and loving life actions.
Therefore today I’ve given myself a task:
I’ll send a letter of appreciation to some people who have made a difference in real life for me.
What tomorrow brings I’ll let you know.
I hope you’ll join me in this pro life action.
This morning it stroke me that what I’m doing, by quitting my job and go traveling and following my dream, is just like the first time I bungee jumped. Going there and getting the equipment on is exciting. Standing on the edge just before the jump and looking down gives major reactions in the body like the stomach makes somersaults, butterflies in the throat, jelly in the knees, and the brain is flat-lining. Then while slowly leaning over the edge to start the jump the whole body including the brain thinks “I’m going to die” and then while flying thought the air that seems to take several minutes (1-2 seconds in reality) the feeling turns into pure joy and loving life because of the amazing feeling of being weightless and flying and just realise that all is good.
Looking back at the last 10 months I can see the patterns. The excitement, the fear, the I’m so going to die if I do it etc. but now after taking the decision and just letting go I’m thrilled and so believe in it all and the feeling that all is good is so wonderful and I’ll “fly”. Now I just feel like 91 days left is way to long time but at the same time there are so many things to do so in the end those days will be appreciated 🙂
