From Malaysia to Melbourne and now Michigan, sharing my experiences, tales and passions with anyone who will listen (or read)!

Moving day

The movers are here!

An Upcoming Change

So my last attempt to revive one of my blogs clearly went well :p Let’s see how this one goes!

As I write this, we are packing up our lives in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for move to Detroit, Michigan, USA. I am feeling excited, apprehensive, nervous, panicked (because I don’t think we’re ready for the removalists to come and pack everything), optimistic…I will attempt to chart the best and worst parts of the move, and everything in between!

From a brief trip to see Detroit a couple of months ago, I know this much: the great Italian-style coffee that is so readily available on every street in Melbourne will be hard to come by. My husband’s colleagues have bought us a coffee machine that awaits our arrival in Detroit, so I will have to polish up my espresso/cappucino/latte/flat white-making skills pronto! And keep hoping that we find more places likeĀ this one. How AWESOME does that place look? I can’t wait to try it out, and to see what life in Detroit and the US holds.

Stay tuned for more!
