The Time of My Life

My time in Brisbane, Australia was absolutely amazing. I loved every second of my 4 months there. I meet awesome, friendly Aussies and was fully immersed in the culture. I got to go to a NRL game and experience Australian Rugby. I went to Queensland's state fair and it was surprisingly very good and a lot of fun. Australians support their local fairs and events. I couldn't have asked for a better host family. They brought me in as one of their own and treated me with love. I had a delicious home cooked meal every day and they brought me to a lot of their favorite spots around Brisbane. The city of Brisbane itself is the cleanest and safest city I've ever been in. There is a lot to do in the city and will take multiple day trips in order to see and experience everything. The program brought us to several unique places such as: Sydney, a few islands, the outback, and a few live performances. I was also able to do a road trip and really got to see a lot more of the country. The academics can be challenging, but that's dependent on what classes you take. I went to this program for the experience, not academics. I wouldn't change my choice. I got to see and experience a lot. I even had the chance to go to New Zealand for a week. Any Lord Of The Rings buffs will love going to New Zealand. I have memories that I'll carry with me for the rest of my life. The weather is also incredible.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I highly recommend finding what you really wanna do and see, and make it happen. Do some research before you get to Australia, but be sure to ask your host family and other Australian's what's worth doing and what they recommend. They know best.
