Our move to Europe was sudden but well needed. I was working 6 to 7 days a week at 3 different jobs and still somehow managed to balance everything else that everyday life requires. But I was exhausted. Moving to the UK came at the perfect time – I was already unsettled back in Perth having left a job I was in for over 4 years and felt that the move couldn’t do any harm. Although I was anxious about how little time I had to say my goodbyes and get everything organised to move over (I am the kind of person who has spreadsheets for everything) I couldn’t help but feel excited and incredibly grateful that we have the freedom and support to make such a jump (Kind of a 14,470 km jump).
We have now been in the UK since November 2015 and I have already come to some solid realizations:
- You can literally do anything you set your mind to – I am all about goals
- There is so much to see, eat and do in the world – I am addicted
- I value freedom of time and quality time with others more than I would have ever thought – I need more of both
So, tying all three of my new appreciations together, I decided to do a blog series ‘The Organised Wanderer’. Follow me as I share my adventures, figure out how to use my fancy camera and Wander through the world (in an organised boarder line control freak sort of way).
