Back home to Armidale for the last timeJune 12, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 8 °C
After four amazing days in Sydney it was time to say goodbye. Goodbye to this extraordinary city which we visited so many times in the last year and if it was only as a stopover at the airport.
We left heavy hearted because it will probably be quite some time (I do plan on coming back one day💕) before we will see Sydney again.
Next week we will fly to Sydney but only to change planes and fly to Melbourne so that wasn't much of a help.
Those last four days showed me a new side of Sydney (not quite as crowded as on New Years Eve and somehow more relaxed than usual) which I've come to love and I think I can say that Brisbane and Sydney are now equal at first place in my top Australian cities ranking. 💕
It was not only our last time exploring Sydney, it was also our last time flying home to Armidale. The place we got to call home for the last year.
I still can't believe how fast time has flown by and that we only have 8 days left (it is the 15th as I'm writing this) until we have to leave this place and all our friends here behind.
Two days ago on Tuesday we had our farewell at the school assembly (one week early because the last week tends to get quite hectic).
We were praised by the girls and got a goodbye card from the people we worked with and a NEGS sports bag with our names embroided on them as a gift (quite handy because I needed a second piece of luggage anyway and they really are beautiful). 💕
Heather also said a few words about us and we gave a short thank you speech to the school and everyone we worked with. 💕
It was one of the hardest things we had to do simply because it meant recalling all the wonderful friendships that have formed and all the amazing experiences we got to make with the knowledge that it will soon be over and we will have to leave.
Anyway I'm immensely grateful for everything and everyone that has happened to me during this year and I'm so lucky to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. 💕Read more
