Thoughts on an Unexpected Summer

Summer 2017 turned out differently than I expected. When I was in Australia, I was set on making a bucket list filled with adventures like camping and visiting waterfalls. I thought I would be posting my videos and blogging about my awesome recent trips. However, by the time I got back to New Jersey, I… Continue reading Thoughts on an Unexpected Summer

Home at Last

Long time, no blog! I cannot say I am pleased with myself for not posting in so long, but you know, life happens. And by life happening, I mean I have been home from Australia for just over a month. I considered the options for first blog post after I got back from my Australian… Continue reading Home at Last

Oz: Weekend Whereabouts

Another beautiful weekend in Straya is down in the books. Friday began with of course, a fantastic pancake breakfast. I had a few too many, but I had to eat enough to cover the pancake-less two Fridays that are in my near future. I spent Friday relaxing and chatting by the pool with Nicole and… Continue reading Oz: Weekend Whereabouts

Oz: Second Week of Classes

Somehow I have already completed my second week of school here at Murdoch. I am definitely adjusting to the new style of classes and am much less stressed than last week. I actually switched from my indigenous studies course to a photography course. I did this because neither course will count towards my degree, and… Continue reading Oz: Second Week of Classes

Oz: Purpose World Tour

Monday, March 6 may not see like that important of a date to most, but I had been looking forward to it for months. It is the day I saw Justin Bieber on his Purpose World Tour at NIB Stadium in Perth, Australia. As soon as I found out he would be in Perth when… Continue reading Oz: Purpose World Tour

Oz: Sculpture by the Sea

My roommate’s birthday was Sunday, and I definitely did not want her sitting home all day. So, Sierra (my roommate), Nicole and I traveled to Cottesloe beach. This time, it was for Sculpture by the Sea. This is exactly what it sounds like: many, many sculptures on the beach and the surrounding pathways for all… Continue reading Oz: Sculpture by the Sea

Oz: Surf’s Up!

Surf’s up down under! One of the days I was looking forward to the most was here: surf lessons! I have surfed a few times in my life, but I am absolutely horrible at it. I was looking forward to having a lesson with other beginners so I would not feel as ashamed of my… Continue reading Oz: Surf’s Up!

Australia: Perth City Lights

Friday did not end after my awesome animal-filled trip to Caversham. I signed up for a few events weeks ago, and Friday night was one of them: a Perth city night outing. I thought this would be an actual tour of the city, but it was composed of a few stops throughout the night. The… Continue reading Australia: Perth City Lights

Australia: Floreat Beach and Hillary’s Harbour

After another beautiful day at the beach, we had yet another planned! Murdoch Village organizes a few trips for students throughout the semester and the one planned for Sunday was a beach and harbor trip. There was not a cloud in the sky Sunday and the sun was scorching. We only had three hours at… Continue reading Australia: Floreat Beach and Hillary’s Harbour

Australia: My First Beach Trip and Night Out

This week had its ups and downs, but there was nothing but sunshine in sight for Friday. Instead of all international students, there was a short two-hour orientation solely for study abroad and exchange students at Murdoch. Brodie and Athira, the other woman in charge of exchange students, went over academic information, gave us some… Continue reading Australia: My First Beach Trip and Night Out
