I wouldn’t say there is a huge number of Americans in Sydney at any given time, at least not in comparison to the other nationalities that populate this part of the world. For some reason, though, I do seem to find and hang out with more than a few.
I’m not one to think that I must hang out with people when abroad just because they’re from the same home country. Another American in a hostel doesn’t mean instant connection and immediate best friends.
What I do think is that the Americans that come to Australia for extended amounts of time are pretty damn cool.
We had a leaving Sydney Travel Tribe event as a farewell for Anna (an Aussie) who is heading off to Cambodia for a few months. Four of the people in this photo are American!
