On request im going to write this blog post in english. Where should I even start telling you all about this fairytale i am living? I can wake up and pinch myself in the arm just to see if I am actually awake. To start with I have the most adorable family that I just never want to leave. Then I have found amazing friends from not only Australia, but from all different parts of this world. But, when I think about it, I have always found it easy to make new friends. And no matter where I go, I have always felt like home. I really do consider myself a global citizen. But, so what is so special about this country down under? What is it that makes my heart beat faster and feel the blood in my vains even more? And what is it that makes me feel like I am never alive, because this is just too good to be true.
Imagine you go to the beach with friends just to have a coffee. All of a sudden a group of wild dolphins come up to the surface of the water just to get some air. They play, eat some fish and all of this is happening just 10 meters from where you are standing.
Imagine one morning you go for a morning walk. Even if it is cloudy and very early in the morning you feel the warm, smooth breeze. You go down to the beach and go for a morning swim, and the water does not even feel a little cold. And this is just another ordinary day of yours.
Imagine how a roadtrip, just 1 or 2 hours by car, can take you to places llike the nicest beach you have ever visited, the most breathtaking view you could ever imagine, or the most clear natural pool you could not even imagine existed.
I could go on for ages giving you examples, but the idea will still remain the same. This country is breathtaking, exiting, surprising and absolutely beautiful. You never know what to expect and you never know what is around the corner.
One more thing that I just love down here is the surf culture, the culture that includes the people, language, fashion, and lifestyle surrounding the sport of surfing. The longer i live here the more I realise how big it actually is. How people actually go in the car, walking, on the bike or even on the horseback with their surfboard to get to the perfect surfplace, just to catch that perfect wave.
Once you actually manage to catch a wave and stand up on your board, which can be a bit of a struggle, you feel the sea under your feet. You feel how every little move can make you change direction, or sometimes even fall of the board.
In a few months, or years, when I will be a pro surfer, I am going to catch one of those 5 meter high waves. I am going to ride on my board in the wave's tunnel, come out again and be amazed of the sea and what I just achieved.
I have to say, this blog post was written by me at 00:51 am when I felt really inspired which means:
* Spelling might not be the best
* Some sentences might not make sence to you
* This blogpost is more than 110% written from the bottom of my heart. I LOVE AUSTRALIA
