Car’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 14 Mar 2009

MapTime really flies here and I honestly think if it weren't for classes I wouldn't even know what day of the week it was! Everything is going awesome--I know, hard to believe. This weekend was surf fest and there was a big surf competition down at Bar Beach, a beach about a 15-20 minute walk from where we live. Over the next few weeks it goes on and some of the pro surfers come and showcase their skills, pretty cool.

Last weekend a few friends and I took a last minute road trip to Sydney. Driving over the huge Sydney bridge for the first time and seeing the opera house was a mind blowing experience, and the whole car trip we had been chatting but when we drove over the bridge and saw the opea house the whole car kind of got quiet for a second, and when we finally got to the opera house and stood in front of it, it didn't even feel real. It was just amazing to be standing in front of one of the worlds most iconic monuments, in one of the worlds largest cities. We only stayed in Sydney for a a night and I already can't wait to go back to see more

I've started to feel more like a regular "uni-student" here, now that I'm finally used to the campus. For the first week or two in my classes I felt like a fish in a fish bowl because the minute I opened my mouth everybody was starting at the girl with the accent. It's hard to believe now we're going into week 3 of classes and I feel like I belong a little bit more. I'm so close already with all of my friends here, and it feels like I've known them forever. I think we all click so well because we all have the same mindset about being here...just to experience everything we possibly can!

I know I haven't been able to keep up with EVERY single person but I've done by best with Emailing and calling when I can! I just want you all to know I love all of you and I'm thinking of you! Hope everything back home is going well! Mom I miss you SO much and I miss just sitting on your bed and talking about boys, but I promise when I come home we'll sit on your bed for an entire DAY and catch up! Have a blast on your vacaton with John, give him a hug for me and tell him I mis him! And dad, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!! You're going to love it here :)

That's all for now
Love & Miss you all,
