My name is Alile C. Eldridge...a New Yorker-turned-Sydneysider, here to share about my life as an American expat in Australia. My site is focused on sharing original editorial and visual content through blog posts and photographs. 

Why Australia? I'm asked quite often why I made the move to Sydney. Read this if you would like to learn more about what guided my decision.

More about Me: I'm originally from Tully, a small farm town in upstate New York. My family has since moved to Syracuse, New York, which is also the city where I went to University (go 'Cuse). 

My passions include: anything dog related, photography, travel, cooking, reading, trivia, running, playing lacrosse, catching live music and jammin' on my uke.
