I’ve been here two weeks. Here in Sydney. I’m leaving Friday. I’m to study the language.

I came to Sydney because I had heard a lot of good stories from friends in the Netherlands. I wanted to travel alone because I had never traveled alone. I travel every year with my boyfriend but I wanted that experience to do it on my own.

Plus I love coffee. In the Netherlands I have coffee spots I go to and if I can’t have good coffee I won’t. When I have coffee I don’t like I feel disappointed and I won’t have it. Sydney has lots of good coffee places so that helps. It creates a relaxed feeling and I have a busy job in the Netherlands so it was time to relax.


Barbecue, ocean, sunscreen, coffee
