Being a expat, homesickness is something we live with. Some are home sick all the time, while others just every now and again.

I have been asked by a fellow blogger what are my top Aussie things to do in the Bay Area to cure homesickness.

So in no particular order:

1. Aussie Rules Footy: got to love our footy. GGAFL( http://www.ggafl.com/) and Sacramento Footy (http://sacfooty.webs.com/) is the place to see it. Either strap on your boots and have a play or be a spectator.

2.Australia shop: Australia Product Co (http://www.aussieproducts.com/mobile/) San Jose or Australia Fair in San Francisco (http://www.australiafairinc.com/) is the place to go for Aussie food. From time tams, cordial, pies, laminations, pavlova eggs and top and fill they have it all.

3. Australian Chamber of Commerce events: if you are wanting to celebrate some Aussie events- AFL Grand Final, Melbourne Cup, Anzac Day to name a few check out http://www.sfaussies.com

4. Netball: want to play a bit of sport and socialize with the girls. Check out San Francisco Stars Netball. (http://starsnetball.com/)

5. Cricket: missing the days of hot weather, beer and watching a good cricket match. Look no further than Marin county. To watch or become a part of the Marin Cricket Club or another club in the Bay Area take a look at the website http://www.bayareacricket.org/

Being Australian is amazing and though Aussie expats are far from home there is always another fellow aussie close by, aussie events to go to and aussie sports to be played.
