The better way of life
I'll tell you now, I've fallen in love already. The Aussie lifestyle is just, well, better! Sydney is the most amazing place I've ever been. It's warm, it's beautiful and even though it's busy, it's not hectic. You can just feel how relaxed people are when you sit down by the opera house for a first beer with a friend you have just met, but already feel comfortabel with. I met Kate when the people from the hostel introduced us to all the offical things you need to know as an australian backpacker. Yep, I now have an australian bankaccount, taxfile number, simcard and even pensionfund (what the hell do I need that for?! Anyway, me and Kate got along really well and had a great time exploring the city. Then after sleeping a bit (jetlag), some food (not much, food is less important than fun, and too damn expensive to be honest), it was time for some drinks in the Scary Canary. Tipical backpackers bar and great fun! Place is just as awesome as it's name.
I've been awake for a few hours now, ate as much as I can (FREE BREAKFAST!!!), heaven, in the backpacker way of life. And now I'm off to meet Nienke! Can't wait, haven't seen you in ages! Time for some more Aussie exploring! Lots to see and more to do! Why was I whining about the showers again? Can't remember! Australia is amazing.

Ha die Maayk,
Great to hear you 're doing so well. It's lovely to read your stories here.
Fantastic you have all the official things arranged and can now act as a true Australian woman.
And too true, you don't need a pensionfunds, your old age is far far away.
You can pass it to me as I am of course much closer to that wonderful period in a life time.
