Every day contains within it countless opportunities, all dictated by the choices you make. If you stay within your comfort zone too long, you just may miss out on an amazing new opportunity.

In the past 8 weeks Jonathan and I have been living quite the nomadic life. We have house sat, road tripped down south, stayed at the Marriott in the City and now, we’re based out of a little AirBnB in Bondi. Everywhere we have stayed has been completely different, which has just added to the entire experience. We leave for America in 12 days, so we thought we’d throw everything in storage and just move around until it was time to head stateside.

It’s crazy to think that by the time we get back from America, we will not have lived in our own place for three and a bit months. If you had have asked me a year ago if I could live an unstructured life I would have answered without hesitation; “no”. JD also was too set in his ways – going on a holiday would leave JD anxious the weeks leading up to it. For me, I wasn’t anxious, I just thought I needed structure to be content. However, I have now felt content in a completely different way.

The last 8 weeks have been so eye-opening for me, but that’s not to say it hasn’t had it’s initial struggles. It took a few days to get used to house sitting and it took a few hours to get used to Bondi. I think when you get so used to living a certain way, when you break that pattern it feels so out of the ordinary, that initially you feel like you’re out of your element. I now feel content because I have grown and learned so much about myself.

What I have learned? I am so open to new adventures and new possibilities. Bring on the next 5 weeks. #IAmReady

Big thank you to Sydney Harbour Marriot for graciously hosting us last weekend – such a beautiful luxury after traveling 8 hours back to Sydney last Saturday. Our room, as you can see, boasted beautiful harbour views and a cloud like bed. We basically ordered room service (Mmm burgers), had a bath and slept for hours because we were so exhausted. On Sunday we stumbled across a little hidden bar called Bulletin Bar (sometimes it pays to follow strangers) – that’s what I love about Sydney, you’re always discovering new things.
