Welcome to this blog, Genzano it story
and this post, going to Australia
This is the map of Australia, the far away land on the other side of the world that we wanted to emigrate to, in the early sixties and we did.
Going to Australia
Dear readers, this post is the continuation
of our last post, the real journey begins, this is the story of my life that I
am writing here in blogger in small posts, which are going to be several
articles; in this article, we are going to tell you about how I felt and what I
did on the ship during my voyage when I was migrating to Australia. Then if you
follow my writings you will find that I have worked in the building industry,
as a bricklayer building houses and this could be interesting to some of you,
if you would like to DIY some building work. Anyhow let us go back to my trip
on the ship to Australia. You see, in the early sixties just about everybody that
went overseas had to sail to whatever destination one had to go to.
While I was on this ship called the Sydney,
in my heart I was already saying: Hello Australia, here I come with my dreams
in my heart of finding a better life for myself and perhaps for the future
generation of my future family, if or when I can have a family of my own.
I know that I might be dreaming these dreams
that may not happen at all the way I want, but I am young and there is no harm
in dreaming to find a better life if I could.
So, as I have said in our last hub, we left
Port Said to go straight to Australia and while we were on the ship crossing
the Indian Ocean we the passenger that were migrating to Australia started to
think already about what we had left behind in Italy, and at the same time we
were eager to see what Australia was like, on the ship we made some
acquaintances and everyone had some story to tell, most of us would be talking
about the reasons why we were migrating to Australia and what we would like to
achieve in Australia, but really we didn't know a thing about what we could do
in Australia, most of us did not have any job qualification, so we were hoping
to do whatever job came our way, as long as there was enough money to earn a
living for a start, so we hoped for the best.
Now, this time I want to keep this post very
short for my own personal reasons; so, see you in our next post, on the way to
Genzano it story Going to Australia IS GOING TO BE CONTINUED; Next time with, on the way to Australia ------------------------------
