One semester seems like a long time but it will fly past. I’ve had a beer in a roof top jacuzzi in Sydney overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, played competitively in the QUT dodge ball team and attended lunch with the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Brisbane. Make the most of your study abroad semester and do as much as possible whilst you’re abroad!
My favourite memories are of travelling. I have been lucky enough to travel to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, The Netherlands and of course France whilst studying. I can honestly say I am dreading leaving this place because of the amazing friends I have made but now I have a million places to stay all over the world in Europe, America, Asia and Australia! It has been such an enriching experience which has broadened my mind so much!
