I just made the booking and am now holding a one way ticket to Europe for July 2018 in my hand. After living in Australia for just over three years we will move back to Europe. This now makes it very definite and I am going through it with mixed emotions.
It is great that after all the Skype contact we will finally be able to see and hold family and European friends again. On the other hand we will have to leave behind good friends that have started to feel like family. Bye bye to spontaneous dinners and hello to planing our social lives weeks if not months ahead. Farewell long summers, looking forward to a cold Christmas. Contradictions? Contradictions!
So now the questions arise, where do we find a school and where are we going to live? Are we going to rent or buy? What are we going to do with all our belongings? What do we still want to do in Australia? And our blog, what will happen to our blog?
It almost feels like I have more questions now then when we moved to Australia , even though we are moving to a familiar country now.
We collected many memories in Australia.
Kai and Luka went from an insecure start at a new school when they did not even speak the language, to being fluent in Aussie now.
All of a sudden the list of ‘the last time’ is starting to grow every day. And we are not even done with our 38 things we want to do in Australia yet…
I am sure we will find answers and solutions to everything that arises, at the moment they are all still questions though…
