Project Description


Australia was fantastic! Though four months fly by quickly especially when your days are packed with school, an internship, sightseeing, and jet setting around the country. In Sydney, trips to beaches and around the city filled my weekends. I saw the Opera House, visited the Harbor Bridge, and had breakfast with koalas to name a few. When I had enough free time, I’d take the first plane out to see this wonderful country, visiting places like the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Melbourne, Whitsundays, and Uluru (aka Ayer’s Rock). I’ve seen and done so much I can’t imagine going back to real-life.
