6 REASONS WE’RE OBSESSED WITH AUSTRALIA

Hey! VINA is coming for you, Australia!! We couldn’t be more thrilled to be opening up Hey! VINA to three cities in the glorious land of Australia. So, get ready, we’re ready to start introducing you to new friends in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

Not to make other countries feel jealous, but we thought it’d be nice to commemorate this day with a list of some of our top reasons we love Australia… and maybe it could inspire some fun vina travels and meet local vinas on the app!

IT’S SUPER NORMAL TO TAKE A GAP YEAR

There are not many topics where the argument of “everybody’s doing it” will entice us, but when it comes to the popularity of the gap year, we’re ALL IN. Travel, explore, and find yourself. We’re also supportive of intermittent gap years, sabbaticals, and other excuses to take a break and explore the globe throughout life.

THE ICEBERG POOL AT BONDI BEACH

Is it a tourist destination? Sure. But is it also arguably the most amazing swimming pool in the entire world? YES. Plus, you’re guaranteed a ton of Instagram likes for your pix.

THEY KNOW THEIR COFFEE

In Melbourne, cafe crawls are a thing. We love that. I mean, what better way to get to know a new vina than getting hopped up on caffeine and exploring the city’s best cafes together?

THERE ARE MORE KANGAROOS THAN HUMANS

We love humans. I mean we are humans. We help humans make friends with other humans… but if we had the option to make an app to connect us with our kangaroo best friends, we’d probably do it.

SUNSETS LIKE WOAH

There’s an amazing sunset pretty much every single day in Australia. Which leaves us always wondering– Why can’t our iphone ever capture photos of sunsets like this?!

VINA CO-FOUNDER JEN LIVED THERE

Jen studied at University of Melbourne and dreams of the opportunity to move back!

Can I use this edited version?

So there you have it! By all means, this is not a comprehensive list. In fact, it only scratches the surface. Share what you love about Australia in the comments, and start meeting some new vinas in the area!

DOWNLOAD HEY! VINA

Hey! I'm Founder & CEO of VINA! I'm obsessed with meeting new friends, connecting people, a junkie for social psychology, and super passionate about empowering women around the world. I'm the proud owner of the coziest cat in the world, and love hosting wine nights with my vinas.
