In February of this year we emigrated from Berlin to Australia. A considerable step for us and, in addition to the mostly positive reactions, frequently asked questions were; Why Australia? What do you hope to find there? What for work are you going to look there? And do you know in which city?
Some of the answers are easy (the why for instance) but for others we only have some vague ideas. First we travel a bit, we go with the flow, look for adventure, and settle in a place that we like and look for work (actually work first). Not knowing everything is part of the fun. Wherever the ship ends up, I ultimately want to continue my work in nature conservation.
So, the reason for moving to this marvelous country was thanks to my wife. We started our journey with a mandatory two-week quarantine, due to COVID-19, at the Pullman medi-hotel in Adelaide, SA. Enough time to contemplate and of course write something. What exactly, you will read in due time on my blog.°
