The only negative I can think of to studying abroad is that I had to leave in the middle of summer! 😦
Australia is in the Southern hemisphere and the U.S. in the Northern hemisphere, so while we would be starting our fall semester, they are actually on their spring semester. I joined them in the midst of Australias’ winter months and I am now finally getting a taste of their Australian spring; which feels a whole lot like summer!
Therefore, with the money I have been saving up from housing and working over the summer, I decided to take my summer back.
My time at Melbourne Uni has just ended and it’s summer vacation here, so I feel like it’s only right to see as much of Australia as I can before I head back to finish my final semester at UC Merced.
My Australian summer will be a short one – just 20 days – that will be spent traveling up the East coast of Australia.
I’ll bring ya back a keychain 😛
