  • Americans in Canberra

    Just wondering if there are any American moms in Canberra?

    Well, I'm an American mom and I live in Canberra.
    I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area in California.
    I joined a meetup group for Americans living in Canberra, but they were all military wives who knew each other through the Embassy.
    Since I married an Aussie and am here for good, I didn't really fit in. I'm even applying for Australian citizenship in a few weeks.
    I'm getting pretty assimilated to the Australian culture, so I feel like I'm sort of in between. Still, I do like talking to other Americans from time to time.
    I've been really homesick lately.

      I'm also married to an Aussie and intended to get my citizenship here, but we are having to go back to the states for two years to get his citizenship first. My Mom is also giving me guilt trips for being here and having just given birth to her first grandbaby. I much prefer it here, and Australians in general, to home. I'm from the East coast, though I have several friends in the Bay Area.

      I havent been involved in any American meet ups. Im not sure where to find them. Do you know if there is anything going on for the 4th here?
