It’s so easy to get caught up with everything while being abroad. Hanging out with new friends, missing old friends, uni work, regular work, saving money, spending money, trying everything, going everywhere, et cetera. Whatever it may be there’s always something going on and, on top of that, time is flying by so quickly!
Piece of advice for all of those considering studying abroad: Save up way more than you think. Like, seriously, work away the entire summer before you go because before you know it your savings account will be completely obliterated and you’ll be eating oatmeal for every meal of the day.
Hello everyone! I am currently on exchange in Sydney and have been here for a little over three weeks now. So far I haven’t experienced too much culture shock, however, there are a lot of little differences I’ve noticed. Please enjoy this list of observations that I’ve accumulated during my stay in Australia so far.
I made the hike from Bondi Beach for about three miles all they way to Coogee Beach. Along the way, you pass about six different amazing places to swim and play. Come join!
Four hours after my last final exam I was on a Tiger Air flight straight to Melbourne (pronounced Mel-Bin)! I heard a lot of negative things before making the trip, ranging from “You only need two days to see everything” to “Aww the weather is crap.” In my opinion Melbourne might even be better than Sydney depending on what you are searching for!
You will find many amazing places and things to do around Sydney, these are my favorite!
Surfers Paradise doesn’t sound like a bad place to visit when you need a break from busy Sydney, am I right? Unfortunately, I didn’t get to surf because of strong winds, but I still made the best of my two-and-a-half day excursion to the Gold Coast.
Alright maybe not barreled, but I did stand up on a surf board for the first time ever!
The 10 day road trip from Cairns (pronounced Cans) to Sydney wouldn’t have been the same without the two speeding tickets, cracked windshield and small fender bender. These few hiccups didn’t stop my sister and I from having a great time.
