What I Miss About London

I recently read an article written by a Sydney native describing what she missed most from home after having relocated to London. It was truly informative about local Sydney and Australian culture.

Adjusting Takes Time

  Sydney is so gorgeous. The hills, the lush green environment and the sunshine. Every time I step outside I take a deep sigh of relief, full of gratitude for the warmth that surrounds me.
