  • REPORTERAlberto Ferrando

Hello everyone! I’m originally from Italy and I moved to Sydney, Australia, in 2012 after getting a job as a civil engineer. I love walking my dog along the beach, surfing and taking photos. I used to have a travel blog because I’m passionate about traveling and I love writing about it too. Sydney is my home base now and I wish to share how amazing it is to live here. I love to spend time outdoors and I’m always well informed about local events because my girlfriend works in event management.

  • OZ SLANG, MATE!
  • It doesn't matter how good your English is or how perfectly British your pronunciation sounds because if your dream is to fly to Australia you may have a hard time understanding Aussies (as Australians call themselves)…Yes, because Australian slang is very rich and tends to shorten almost everything.

  • Fighting boredom Australia April
  • How can we spend our time in quarantine? Being under quarantine can be frightening and boring and the Australian government suggestions on how to cope with it include talking to the other members of the family about the infection to understand the coronavirus (COVID-19) and reduce anxiety other than keeping up a normal daily routine as much as possible.

  • What’s the fuss about toilet paper Down Under?
  • I wanted to talk about the difficult times we are experiencing here in Australia with this COVID 19, but then I thought that we can get all the sad and worrisome data about the contagion from the news, so I wanted to take a different approach to the matter and talk about something peculiar is happening here Australia, which is the “disappearance” of toilet paper in the supermarkets, or better the looting of it.

  • Sandboarding, the OZ alternative to surfing
  • In Australia there is a super fun sport activity called sandboarding which can be practised on one of the numerous small islands off the coast of this country and also in some other areas where the sandy beaches are hilly and offer a good spot to use a board to slide off and enjoy this activity somewhat between surfing, snowboarding and sledding.

  • Watsons Bay
  • Since I do not originally come from Sydney, my discovery of this city goes on with a preference for walks by the sea. After my first favourite hike to Bondi Beach which I mentioned in my previous blogs, I went this time a little more to the north to explore the beautiful and peaceful Watsons Bay.

  • I remember that I had written my first blog on this site about the variety of animals in Australia and I’m very sad to write that the paradise for animals (and humans) this country used to be is now a distant memory and our paradise is now burning like hell.

  • When you visit Australia, you will surely come across some typical dishes: don't hold back, but try them! Some of them will ignite your curiosity!
