Train Training

Today, Ben got Melbourne train training. I explained all about tapping on and off using his Myki card, taking the SkyBus from the airport to the city, and what to do if you miss a train! In a little over 24 hours, he’ll make the journey by bus and train to meet me after work!! Ah! I could not be more excited.

I cannot believe that I’ve been here for a month and a half. It feels so much shorter, yet so much longer than that! It really does not seem like that long ago that Mom, Dad, and I had a mini dessert feast at LAX before I got on my international flight, yet when explaining public transport to Ben today, I felt like I’ve already been taking it for years. It’s all crazy to me!

Alicia’s Aussie Word of the Day: trackees. Meaning sweat pants. Usage: I immediately put my trackees on after practice tonight because I was freezing!

    I missed this post by accident , but will say, you sound like a native – If you start typing with a Crocodile Dundee accent, we will know you are acclimated – So proud of you , that you would be operating so independently . So young to be an old native already.!! I have friends from Australia, and in speaking with them, I see how your bright spirit is welcomed with open arms – G’pa Christensen
