"I went to Melbourne, Australia for my study abroad in spring 2011. I can hands down say I had the best time of my life. I met some of the most amazing people and visited some beautiful parts of the world I never knew I would ever see. I met a group of internationals that I can easily consider my best friends, as well a group of crazy Aussies. To this day I talk to some of them almost everyday. When I travelled I visited Sydney and the Great Ocean Road and then spent my spring break in New Zealand, where I went cave dwelling and skydiving. I went to three music festivals as well, one on the day I landed which was amazing to see! Because Melbourne is such a big city, a lot of the times I would take the train and would just get off on a random stop to explore the city. Culturally, Australia was so different than I had ever imagined. Everything was so laidback and relaxed and the people were so friendly. One of the coolest things I did was go to an AFL footy game, the Australian version of football. And let me tell you, that is one manly sport, it was awesome! Australia in itself was a different world to me. I would do anything to go back. "
