⛵️Yachting in Brisbane: T’s Week

What were you grateful for this week? Going boating. 

What was the most challenging part of this week? Waking up early haha. 

Tell us about a "wow" moment you had this week. Went the store and I had to walk. (I didnt need to go. It was more if I wanted to.)

Tell us about your week! This week in Australia went by extremely fast. Throughout the week I stayed pretty busy because I had [my host family’s son] all week. 

Another thing I did this week was that I joined a gym with one of my really good au pair friend that I’ve met here. We joined together and we are doing a short 6 week program too. Some things that I learned was that 1) gyms in Australia are very expensive. There was a $99 joining fee and then the gym is $22 A WEEK versus at home it’s $22 A MONTH. So huge difference. 

Another nice thing this week was that this is problaly the best week [my host family’s son] and I have ever had. 5 year olds will always have their moments haha but this week [my host family’s son] was very calm and we got along so great. We are to the point that we act like brother and sister and I just love it! 

On the weekend, I babysat for another family and then on Sunday I took a train and went east for the day because I bought this Groupon for a yacht boat. They take you out into the ocean and then this other island where you can snorkel and just have fun. It was cool because there were some other people my age (20) and they also served you lunch and of course everyone was so nice. This week was pretty good. Can’t wait till next week!
