My name is Andrea, 26.

Born and raised in Italy, in the city of Naples. I moved to London at the age of 22 with the hope of finding better job opportunities and spent my four English years just working. I was kind of hoping to settle down with my boyfriend at that time as I thought that was what I needed to be happy.

I was wrong!

Something was not right. I was not happy with my life and I feel that something was missing.

In the early 2016, I decided to cross the globe travelling to Sydney, Australia holding a working holiday visa for a year contract. I left everything I had in London -- my boyfriend, my house and my job. All I have are my clothes and my life packed in a carry-on bag and a luggage.

Different Places - Treasured Moments

I booked a flight and visa two weeks prior to the big move. I was excited -- but scared at the same time as I was about to leave my comfort zone.

Things happened so quickly. I stayed at a friend's house on my first week to get a bit more confident with what it was a new country to me. It was my first time flying in so far away country. The jet lag got me so much that I was feeling frustrated by the laid-back Australian life.

My first experience as an immigrant in Australia was very new to me. As a European citizen, I did not need a visa travelling and staying in England for a longer period. This made me realize the big difference living and working Down Under. I now understood I had to change. I had to work for myself and just let things go. 

It worked out at the end and I started loving the Australian lifestyle and the weather. I learned that if you are late, or if something did not go as planned, it is not considered a big deal in this country.

During my stay in Australia, things have gone in a way I never thought it could be possible. I had the chance to travel to Japan visiting my Japanese roommate I met in Sydney. 

I then went back to London for just 3 weeks since my parents changed their plan of moving to London and decided to visit me in Sydney instead. I spent Christmas with my parents after four years away from them.

With my Mum on the Beach in Australia

My twelve-month stay in Australia is coming to an end. By then, I have to go back to London -- but before doing so, I have to visit Thailand with a friend coming from England. 

My travels will not end here -- just because I am going back to my routine in London. Travelling changed me -- I know my life will not be the same again.
