Here’s another epic chin-wag episode for you mob!

Meet Kyrin Down from Brisbane, Australia!

Kyrin studied mining engineering at an Australian university. He then went on to work for Rio Tinto, a giant mining company.

And all of a sudden, he threw all that away and chose to travel around the globe.

He went around South America and Asia, fell in love with someone from Colombia – and he’s not even 30 yet!

Watch and listen in today to learn what it’s like living in Brisbane, what stoicism is about, and why you should not focus on achieving happiness all the time.

Improve your listening skills today – listen, play, & pause this episode – and start speaking like a native English speaker!

Watch & listen to the convo!

        00:04:40 Pete: Are you allowed to own those as a Queenslander or…?
        Kyrin: Yeah, yeah. I think it’s a little bit on the sketchy side. I try and get away with it.

        Please explain what were you talking about? Both you and Kyrin.
        Many thanks, Huu

        1. It’s so hot in Queensland that Queenslanders usually never use pants or jumpers. I’m from the south east of Australia where it’s cold, so I was making a joke suggesting that Queenslanders don’t wear pants or jumpers because it’s illegal/not allowed.
