Less than two months to go…

With only less than two months remaining of my Aussie adventure, here is a compilation of one of the things I’m going to miss the most – the good old Aussie sunset.  Also, it is with a heavy heart that I inform you all that the video app no longer has everyone’s favourite piano melody […]

Here is a vlog showing you some of the things I got up to on my trip to Uluru…

Mid-Semester Break Number Two

Over the first week of my mid-semester break I travelled to the Red Centre with a couple of friends to see Uluru. Uluru is a sacred rock of the Anangu people, one of the aboriginal groups that lives in the Red Centre.  Not only was this trip eye-opening as I learnt so much about the […]
