    • Thanks! No, just an Aussie accent now, with what I’ve been told can only be described as a ‘well enunciated edge’. Us Aussies have a tendency to slur all the words together, but I think mostly I have avoided picking that up. Glad you enjoyed it!

  1. Brilliant. I really enjoyed the article and reading about your life. The explanation you gave of your new “home” consisting of your previously owned items was my favorite part. Simple and to the point, yet moving.

    I wish I had a similar experience, but sadly living in the States does not allow for much travel time as it once did. Certainly not for the young kids struggling to pay for an overpriced education just to get a job pumping overpriced gas.

    Well, I won’t get into a rant about it. Very nice article. Keep up the awesome work!

    • Thank you! That’s a shame that there aren’t opportunities to travel more over there. We have a pretty good system here where we don’t have to pay for our education until we’re earning over a certain amount of money, and then it gets taken out of our pay each week/fortnight/month. This basically means that until we’re on a higher income, we get to postpone paying for our education and can use our lower income salary to do things like travel while we’re studying. It’s not luxury living, but if you are strict about saving it works nicely.

  2. Okay, I admit I only skimmed the article, but I had to laugh – I know exactly how you feel!! My answer to the question is usually, “Define from,” which makes the person asking the question kind of blink at me and wonder why I’m being so difficult. When I start going on my spiel about the different places I’m “from,” I generally get, “Oh, you’re an army brat.” Ummm…no. I currently have about 5 homes – where I was born, where I mostly grew up, where my parents live, my actual address, and where I’m staying at the moment. “Home” to me is less a location and more a feeling.

    • Oh it is certainly a trial having to explain it to perfect strangers, isn’t it?! I’m glad I’m not the only one out there who’s ‘homeless’ ;)
