After six and a half years in Hawaii, I will be leaving the Islands for Sydney, Australia this March. It hasn’t been an easy decision to leave the place I’ve lived the longest since growing up in New Jersey, but I am excited and looking forward to experiencing a new and different place. Currently, I am looking for job opportunities in Australia, so if you have any tips, ideas, suggestions—or want to met up Down Under—I welcome everything at

  12. Do you read the blog Table Tonic? She’s a great Australian blogger, and she was the first person I thought of that you should contact. Before blogging full time she was in the magazine industry. I’m speaking of her like I know her, but really I’m just a big fan of her blog. Your blog too, by the way. Don’t think I’ve ever commented here before…but I love it and keep up the good work!


  13. Very cool! We’re planning to move to Sydney in 2 or 3 years so hang in there and I will join you!

  14. Good luck..My finace and I had the very same discussion this weekend. Australia seems a lovely place to live.

    Best of luck!
