I live by the beach on Kaurna land. I moved here from Port Pirie on Nukunu country when I came to university.For many years I was fuelled by a great desire to travel around the world. Like many young people of my generation, I left Adelaide with my partner and went backpacking, finally landing in Aotearoa (New Zealand) where we lived for five years. We took another backpacking trip before returning to Adelaide where our children were born. Then, in 2009, we all moved to Abu Dhabi.
