Mishna 'Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves' Henry David Thoreau

Living in Sydney!!

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 1 April 2008 | Views [622]

After leaving Western Australia we decided to head for Sydney where jobs would be aplenty!

We'd seen sharehouses advertised in British Balls (backpacker magazine) so we gave them a ring the night before we arrived. We were lucky enough to get into one straight away even though it was the token "party" house (our flipflops stuck to the liviing room floor when we viewed it and there were a million beer bottles everywhere). They told us (challenged us)that if we could put up with the mess and noise for a week and a half we could move houses and get our own ensuite room!! woo hoo!!


We lived in the terraces for just over 2 months and had a great time. The houses are so much nicer than a hostel and it's a great way to meet people. They are situated in Newtown which is only about 20 mins out of the CBD by bus. It's a great area full of quirky shops, cafes and plenty of bars!!

Whilst in Sydney I worked in admin for an International Educational Institute. It wasn't the most exciting job but it paid and I wasn't in a call centre!!

I'm really glad that we gave Sydney another chance, we hadn't been too impressed before but it's actually a great place to live!!
