Here’s just a little look at my last few weeks in Oz and my first few weeks back home…


In little over a week’s time, I will have been home for a month! It’s absolutely mad to think that its already been so long since I was enjoying the Australian sun (coz yes, the weather is still ridiculously good, even in the middle of winter)! Since I’ve been back, I’ve done the obligatory – […]

Thinking about going home!

As I write this there are only 8 days between me and home!!! It’s both a scary and exciting time as I miss everyone and everything from home, but at the same time there’s a certain sadness involved in flying 16,000 km away from all the friends you’ve made in the past year.  It’s a […]

Some memories!

With only little under a fortnight left of my year abroad left, here’s some of the best memories from the year!

Here’s just a short and sweet blog about Adelaide’s Mad March.   Most Australians, and the majority of people from Adelaide, will tell you that Adelaide isn’t an exceedingly exciting place to live.  Yes, there are plenty of things to do, but comparatively to other Australian cities (and state capitals), it is rather….boring isn’t the […]


When I came out to Flinders University, I had no idea what to expect.  I didn’t know how many other exchange students there would be, where they would be from, and I knew next to nothing about Australia as a country – apart from the fact it is so bloody hot, which is actually something […]

Back to Uni…Term 2 in Australia!

Hiya!! It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve posted any blogs, sorry! I’ve got into an awful habit of writing them on my phone and completely forgetting to post them on here, so there will be a few uploaded in quick succession as I have built up a slight backlog of things to […]
