The point of me undertaking a working holiday visa was not only to travel but also to live in a different country. I haven’t ruled out emigrating to another country in the future if the UK still isn’t doing it for me, and so I’m treating this year almost as a trial run for any future plans I may have. Luckily, from February to early June I will be working as an au pair for a wonderful family living in Killara, NSW, about a 20 minute train journey from central Sydney.
I feel like this period of my travels presents the perfect opportunity not only for me to experience an authentic Australian lifestyle, but also to run a little series regarding things to do in Sydney. Not the stereotypical backpacker things like climbing the Harbour Bridge and touring the Opera House, but the day-to-day things, stuff only ‘Sydneysiders’ tend to really know about. Each week I will embark upon an adventure within Sydney that is not only a bit less well-known but also budget friendly, and blog about it as I go. And I shall call it Living in Sydney.
