I can’t really believe it but today marks 3 years since I walked through customs at the airport in Melbourne to join Simon on our new adventure, a life together in Australia. I remember the day I left Sweden as if it was yesterday. The sadness of leaving friends and family mixed with the excitement of the unknown what was to come. It’s not always easy being an expat living far away from what used to be home (and in a way always will be). Sweden has a very special place in my heart and there are definitely things I miss about living there but most of all it’s the people I miss, my friends and family. That said though, Simon and I have built a very nice life for ourselves here in Australia and we are surrounded by lovely friends and family. You can’t have the cake and eat it too unfortunately so we’re happy with what we got, try to make the best out of the situation we’re in and look forward to what the future will bring us. 🙂

Crash course in how to speak Aussie. Just abbreviate everything and you’ll be fine 😉
Ok, so my last comeback was what one may refer to as somewhat unsuccessful so I don’t blame you if you don’t hold your breath this time. I do truly miss the blog and my writing though and I believe I’m at a point in my life where the blog once again can fill a void and have a purpose. I’m not sure there will be anyone patient enough to still be checking in for updates but I’ll be here if you do sharing the ups and downs of the roller coaster ride we call life.
