Postcard from Australia: Fashion, Generations Apart

As interesting as Australia was, it wouldn’t be as much interesting without its people. I personally think the variant type of people in Australia is the reason behind such an lively country. Take a day out in Melbourne or Australia and you can spot different kinds of people with their own fashion expressions and freedom. Unlike Jakarta, we are so much condoned to the norms of looking good.

It doesn’t stop in fashion. Stroll around, take time to talk to new people and you will find their independent expressions through their speech and opinionated conversation, which are harder to find in Asian countries.

During my 2 and a half weeks of roaming through Melbourne and Sydney, I had the most fun exploration because of its people. As much as possible I will try to talk to them, get to know them better and explore their principles that created such strong standpoints in their day to day life. Believe it or not, I came back with stronger conviction and higher level of ignorance towards what people say about my life.

Who says traveling doesn’t teach you anything?

Anyways, here is a postcard, dedicated to the locals of Australia who are bold enough to stand for what they believe in, yet humble enough to accept differences.

I am going to stop before I start rambling on and on about my love towards Australia, you have probably read that enough from my travel blog.

Anyway, wish us the best of luck as we hike Rinjani tomorrow morning! We would really love to stay alive and write more blog posts for you.

 

Keep exploring,
