I’m all for working-your-ass-off to achieve your goals. Especially when you are in your twenties and thirties.
It’s true that I moved to Australia because there are better work opportunities, better culture, people, and most of all, a thriving growing first-world country.
It’s also true that I work (or at least try to work) 16-hours a day, and I don’t take weekends off either.
But when you are living in Australia, you’ve got to steal some days every now and then to experience this wonderland.
And one such day was yesterday. It was a Saturday and a bright summer day.
A bunch of us decided to head over to St. Kilda’s Beach, Melbourne.
Pretty much all the major cities in Australia (Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane) are port cities. Meaning they have miles of absolutely gorgeous coastline, and some of the best beaches in the world.
And the best part is that these beaches are right within the city, easily accessible by buses or trams.
You’ve probably heard about Aussie culture of beaches. If not, it will take just a single glance to see it.
Once you enter the area, you truly feel part of the community. There are people from all different cultures – Asians, South Asians, Australians, Arabs, Europeans, Africans – sunbathing, playing volleyball, swimming, taking selfies, cycling, and running around.
Of course, we also didn’t leave any opportunity to turn the camera on and pose 😉
In all the busy schedules that all of us have built around us, we kind of forget the value of taking breaks and letting go.
There will always be laundry to do or meal to cook. And there will always be work deadlines to meet.
Yesterday, in some sense, reminded me that one of the reasons I moved to Australia in the first place was to explore and experience the best there is in the world.
I could have spent Saturday in front of my Macbook as well, like I do on most Saturdays. Or I could have made some memories to cherish.
