Most recently, I was in Australia and met a young man who was serving me fries in what seemed like a family-owned place in the Gold Coast. I enjoyed going here as the food is cheap in an otherwise really expensive city.
I started chatting with the young man as I realized that he has a non-Australian accent, so I knew there was a story there. Here’s his story:
- Parents are from Eritrea in Africa
- Born in Saudi Arabia
- Moved to Ethiopia at age 10
- Then later to Kenya
- At 25 (currently), he moved to Australia
- He speaks Amharic, English, Tigrinya, Swahili and he loves listening to reggae music.
And that’s why I love to travel. What’s your story? Please leave a comment below.
