It takes time to settle in to any new place. To truly feel at home, we need to feel connected to the place in which we live and the people around us. We need to know where things are and understand how things work. It is normal to feel some discomfort at times when everything is new, but dive in, enjoy Perth and all it has to offer and you will soon feel like you belong.
Australians love to talk about two things in particular: sport and the weather. And when you move to a new place, whether you are relocating from within Australia or from overseas, you will settle in sooner if you can join in the conversation.
