It's fair to say my relationship with Australia hasn't always been a great love story. Australia and England might share the same tongue but past that cultural differences can be vast and idiosyncrasies viewed as characteristic through tourist eyes can become obtuse, awkward contentions when struggling to find familiarity. It's taken two years to feel as though I've found my feet; the essential building blocks such as meeting friends, knowing where a great coffee shop is and making connections in the industry have finally fallen into place.
I took a long walk today, and even though I can't wait for the New York adventure to begin, there was an ache of sadness when I considered what I will leave behind; great friends, arching blue skies and a country where if you look just a little, you will find creativity in bounds.
