Dec 2015-March 2016: Moving to Sydney, Australia

Moving from the US to Sydney via London, Netherlands, Wellington and Brisbane

Alas it was a goodbye to New York and hello to 'down under'!  I also quit 9 years working at Credit Suisse which was a very hard decision, but as I didn't want to relocate back to London and there were no roles going in Australia, it was the best option.

I also had the opportunity to see all my friends and family in the UK, Netherlands, NZ and Brisbane. 

Spending Xmas with my brother, sister in law and adorable two nieces in London was the icing on the cake! That and spending New Year's with very good friends of mine (Vicky/Conall), catching up with other close friends such as Sera/Jasper/Alex, Wai, Jacky and having the chance to go over to Gramsbergen and see my Dutch cousins Hilga and Jacco (and their kids), and my aunt and uncle.

Then I flew downunder to stay with my folks in Wellington for 4 weeks and enjoy the Wellington summer (which was pretty decent), and also fly across to Brisbane (which was very hot) to catch up with my sister Pen, brother in law and very lively two nephews!

Been an amazing (busy/stressful - but so wonderful) 3 months and so happy that I was able to catch up with everyone.
