Other Highlights:

  • Traveling throughout Australia (particularly a 3-day backpacking trip south of Cannes, Byron Bay and Melbourne)

  • The people (Australians are so kind, welcoming, and fun)

  • The ability to develop strong, lasting relationships with other abroad students and Aussies

  • Living a very outdoorsy and adventurous lifestyle

  • Traveling to other countries as well (I went to Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Thailand)
