It’s been a very long time since my last post, so I thought I had better show up again 🙂
Last year was an year full of work, big challenges, tight deadlines, emotions and very nice surprises. The earth shaking thing was that I finally received my permanent residence visa last December, which allowed me to migrate to Australia.
People usually ask me : Man, are you crazy ? why do you want to do this ? why a so far far away place ? I always answer laughing!
Well, the reasons were always very simple and obvious to me, because I always had the desire to live abroad, being inserted inside a different culture, so I had been pursing this objective until I got it. Australia was the best option to me, as a Brazilian it’s been very comfortable to adapt to a similar weather, culture and values.
I will complete one month living here and I can say that it’s a very nice and beautiful country, with very nice, kind and educated people. The experience of living here has been great, my family’s adaptation is going very well and I have no complaints !
Of course, there is the overhead of a fresh start, learning everything again, know new people, show how competent and dedicate I am, I still think people will talk to me in Portuguese, and I still have the feeling I’m still in Brazil (that is completely crazy), but it’s all part of the package 😉
So, I couldn’t be happier !
