Bud­dies love trav­el­ling

French duo en­joy­ing the trip of life­time

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A LIFE­TIME of friend­ship be­gan for Zoe Citron and Sarah Meghar three years ago while study­ing English at univer­sity in France.

The bright and bub­bly per­son­al­i­ties of the pair res­onated through­out the room as they re­called a defin­ing mo­ment in their friend­ship.

Ms Citron said she met Ms Meghar through a mu­tual friend.

“It was re­ally funny, kind of like love at first sight,” Ms Citron said.

“I was with a friend and I think we were go­ing on the ter­race and ba­si­cally he in­tro­duced me to Sarah.

“The friend had to leave to catch the train and I was like ‘um, it’s nice to meet you’.

“Three hours we were talk­ing and it went from there, now three years later we’re the best of friends.”

The pair have done many things to­gether and their love for trav­el­ling is ev­i­dent.

“We ba­si­cally lived with each other the past cou­ple of years be­cause I’d al­ways spend time at her place and she would spend time at my house, so we were al­ways to­gether,” Ms Meghar said.

“We would go to par­ties, we went trav­el­ling to­gether, the two of us went to the Nether­lands.

“It was so nice and we were meet­ing friends, it was like a nice old cou­ple.

“It’s a re­ally nice place, we vis­ited a lot of gar­dens and even went to Wester­park which is the big­gest gar­den in Am­s­ter­dam.”

Mak­ing the trip to Aus­tralia was a joint de­ci­sion be­tween the two women and their other friend Clara Delpierre, also stay­ing in Mundubbera.

“I’ve been want­ing to go to Aus­tralia since my first year of univer­sity be­cause I was hes­i­tat­ing be­tween go­ing to Aus­tralia for a year or go­ing to Amer­ica and we talked about it for a while and the whole group de­cided to just do it,” Ms Meghar said.

Cur­rently Ms Citron and Ms Meghar are work­ing at the pack­ing sheds in Mundubbera and are re­ally en­joy­ing their time here.

“It’s a pretty small town but we love it.”
