I’ll be heading back to Adelaide in less than 2 weeks for 4 days. I am so excited! Catching up with friends, organising further wedding plans, staying with my parents. Being home. I’ve decided Sydney really isn’t where I see myself long term. I’m just not a big city person. Perhaps because I spent my first 7 years living in a wonderful outback country town. I do find it quite a lonely place also, which is ironic seeing there are so many people here! Maybe because my true friends, the ones that know me to the soul are in Adelaide or in London. I don’t really have any super close friends in Sydney. My lovely fiancé feels the same. Sydney is not ‘us’. Behind the glitz and the glam of Sydney, I’ve decided I don’t suit it, and it doesn’t suit me. That’s ok though – I will enjoy it for at least the next year or so and then we’ll move on, Brisbane, Adelaide or over to Dubai.
Speaking of getting out of Sydney, it will be less than 3 weeks til I fly out to Dubai. God, I’m so excited. My best friend who is living in London is flying in to meet up – we will dine and shop and swim like there’s no tomorrow! Of course I have to do work too. I will meet up with teh lovely Jules
too, whose blog is so wonderful and gives a fantastic expat insight into Dubai
Sydney has blessed me with an amazing job, which pays very well, with international travel, perks galore but of course, I’m still not totally happy. It does go to show that money definitely doesn't bring happiness. Will I ever be totally content? What am I searching for? I’ve found my partner for life now I feel like I’m looking for a place to settle. Wherever that may be. I still dream of opening up a gallery/homewares store on the coast, somewhere relaxing without loads of people. Maybe that is what I'm meant to do.
