New year, new adventure

I have some big news! I’ve been planning something for a good few months but now everything is all finalised I thought I’d share it on here. I mentioned a while ago that I’m travelling around South East Asia this month, and on from there I’m going to move to Melbourne, Australia! 
My Australian boyfriend has been living and working here in London for over three years and now seems the right time to go and explore his side of the world. I’ve been at my job since I finished uni in 2013 and I’ve loved it and learned so much from it, but now it’s time to try something new. 
We set off mid January and after travelling through Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand for a month, we’re arriving in Melbourne in mid February (just in time to catch the last of Summer weather, YES). If you know of any cool companies or jobs going in the creative industry, do let me know please 😉 
I’ve got mixed emotions about leaving. I’m so excited for the lifestyle, the adventure, and all the exploring, but I’m going to miss my family and friends times a million. There is also a bit of stress which comes with packing up your life to move across the world, but after we shipped most of our things on Friday I feel a lot more relaxed about it all! Right now I’m chilling by the fire, enjoying the last of my Winter, and soaking up every moment with my family. I will blog my adventures down under if you are interested?! I’m not sure how long we’ll stay but I plan to make the most of it all!

    I'm so jealous of your space, it looks beautiful and must be so stimulating creatively speaking!

    How exciting for you! I’m from Melbourne and have been living in the UK for two and a half years! Hopefully I’ll head back there next year. You’ll love it. Plus it’ll still be warm for a few months after Feb! Good luck and look forward to following your travels! x
