Best time ever

This has been the best time for my friends & I. We all came in not knowing eachother at all and being from different places but have become such close friends. It is normal to be scared or nervous!!! Don’t let that hold you back & this experience is more than worth it. I have made friends in the past 4 months that I can’t imagine I used to not know. There’s plenty of amazing trips here in Australia (imagine snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef!!!) and you get to do it all with the best friends you make here.
