HI LUCAS! CAN YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF?
My name is Lucas Martinez, I’m 26 yo from Perpignan, France. I recently completed studies in Audiovisual Production and decided to travel abroad to improve my English. I never really travelled before and chose a faraway English-speaking country, to combine learning and travelling!
I arrived in Perth with friends on October 26th, 2017. I immediately found a room in a shared house and a job in a café/restaurant, C15 Espresso. I took up kite surfing in Perth at Soulkite, a great school that I highly recommend.
Often I would go to the banks of the Swan Riverto to enjoy sports activities. I visited the city, and its surroundings, and went down south of Margaret River. I moved to Brisbane on January 12th, 2018. If all goes to plan, I will travel further inland to work on a farm and apply for a second year Visa. My goal is to learn English, discover Australia and have professional experience in my field.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION WHEN YOU ARRIVED IN AUSTRALIA?
Wow! I haven’t seen all that much yet, but so far it’s amazing! I love this relaxed Australian vibe. People are friendly, and the landscapes are breathtaking! The colors of the sky at sunrise and sunset and the stars during the night are awesome!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PLACES SO FAR?
I have heaps of favorite places, for different reasons. I saw the first Kangaroos in Dunsborough. I loved Margaret River and its wild landscapes, I enjoyed Perth and the Swan River for its activities. Brisbane is a cool city with its South Bank. I share everything I love with my family and friends through my videos.
HOW DID AUSTRALIA CHANGE YOU?
So far this journey gave me more confidence: I engage easily with people and I dare more!
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE THINKING ABOUT COMING TO AUSTRALIA?
Don’t overthink and GO! You will have unforgettable experiences and see things you will not see anywhere else!
