With this post, we reach a major milestone. Almost exactly 6 months after we made the big move, we will have published 100 posts on europe2australia.com! Time for a new look. Continue reading “100th post…”
Just small little tidbits that we needed to get off of our chest.
On being Australian
Driving home from work today it suddenly hit me that we have been in country almost six months to the day. Man, time flies when you’re having fun! I guess it’s time for a reality check. Have I become Australian? Continue reading “On being Australian”
Sometimes it’s just a lot of fun walking around in Australia and engaging with the people on the street. It might be stereotypical, but on average, these Aussies really are a friendly and open bunch.

Who reads our blog?
We basically started this Blog to keep friends, family and anyone interested posted about our life when we moved from Europe 2 Australia with our two children a bit over two months ago now.

Track our flight
We are almost on our way now. We left everyone behind and we can now hear and smell the airport from our hotel. All that is waiting is one more night in a comfortable bed. Continue reading “Track our flight”
We’re finally underway! We’ve packed our last bag, said our last good-byes and are now spending the night at the hotel close to Schiphol airport, so that we can check-in tomorrow morning and not have to fight with the rush-hour. There’s no way back, now. Continue reading “We’re underway”
Packing up your household can be a daunting task, especially if, like us, you have lived in one place for a while. Cr*p just keeps piling up and it looks like quite a challenge to wade through all of it. But to me, going through old picture and boxed I haven’t seen the inside of for the past few years, it’s quite the cathartic experience. Continue reading “Packing”
