Living abroad is one of the most transformative experiences that anyone can have.
Unless you can pack your family, job, city and cross the world to live in a bubble, it is impossible to come back from an experience abroad the same way you were before.
In Australia, you will learn to live like an Australian: call your friends “mate”, drive on the opposite side of the road, wake up to the weird sounds of cockatoos, sleep when the rest of the world is getting up.
It is inevitable not to be exposed to completely new ways of living.
You will meet a lot of people. You will even get to know a new version of yourself.
You may also discover a new profession. Discover that this new person has more affinities with the Slovak roommate than with the neighbour he had in Brazil.
You may discover that you love camping, you hate vegemite, that you can live without your favourite snack from home.
You may discover a beach with unforgettable waves. Or a very safe and quiet corner to meditate.
You may fall in love. Not necessarily for someone, but certainly for something. There are plenty of reasons – when you see the first koala, you will understand.
