Travel Moments: Laura of An American Abroad
The train came out of the tunnel into the bright light of day. It took a minute for my eyes to adjust and for me to figure out where I was. I craned my neck to look out into the harbor. I could feel my heart flutter, my stomach dropped a little bit. There it was. I had seen it a million times in photos. I had imagined hundreds of times what my life in Sydney would be like one day. And now here I was, taking the train to my first job interview seeing what could possibly be my daily commute and I couldn’t believe, in that moment, how incredibly lucky I was to be right where I was peeking out the window at the Sydney Opera House.
