G’ Day Mates!
Did you miss me?
As you may or may not know, the gang and I took a trip to Sydney last week. I am happy to report that we all enjoyed our time there and it is apparent that we all took something positive from the excursion. Though every student stayed in hostels in Sydney for the duration of the excursion, we were advised by Poppa D (Professor Davison) to travel in smaller groups. So, we broke up into three different groups. Group A: Ericka, Joy, Kelsey and Caprice. Group B: myself, Brittany, Megan, Marilee and Cierra. Group C: Quinn, Brother, Barend and Carl.
I admit it; I am more of a couch potato than an active person. No worries, our adventures in Australia are changing that. The city was so beautiful and modern that even I wanted to see all of its attractions immediately. My group decided to go sightseeing once we were checked into our hostel. I strongly believe that there is something about that city that made all of us feel comfortable and energetic. Some might say that it is magical, I know I do. There were so many people to meet and so many things to do that there was never a day that went by where we were stuck in our hostel.
If you have never been to Sydney, allow me to paint a picture for you. Imagine a better and cleaner version of New York City. Now, imagine friendlier and if you can, better dressed people. This is a city where transportation is always available and the nights are always gorgeous. Though we embraced Sydney and she embraced us with all of her beauty and openness, it was not all fun and games.
As I have stated before, it was an educational excursion. So, we stuck to our list of objectives and our personal itineraries we planned prior to our trip. My group planned to see an opera, go on a tour of the Sydney Opera House, visit the Maritime Museum, visit the aquarium, view the Sydney Tower Eye and climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Our goal was to collectively learn something new about those amazing places and hopefully gain a new perspective. Stay tuned for in depth details about our Sydney excursion.
