Leaving home was anything less than stressful. A 20 hour flight, a 14 hour time difference, not being able to see my friends & family in a snap of my finger. After two
flights, I arrived, greasy hair & all! All I wanted to do was sleep, yet TEAN had other plans for us, like walking tours & dinner as a group to get to know eachother, which was an excellent idea! The first night a group of us tried kangaroo, & let me just say, it was amazing! Once the jet-lag finally set in we all almost fell asleep in our plates. The next day was filled with even more walking, including Sydney Habour & the amazing views that surrounded. It hadn’t quite hit me until I saw the Opera house that I was in Australia! The night was filled with beer & conversation as the new roomies & I got to know eachother & this large city. Our last day involved visiting the Taronga zoo, which makes me behave like a small child again, because all i want to do is see every animal possible. We were able to get up close with kangaroo’s & the cutest tazmanian devils! On the way back to the hotel we stopped at Aqua S, a icecream shop that is anything less than instagrammable. The rose ice cream was unlike anything I had ever tasted, but so refreshing!
The third night in Sydney is soon approaching with a dinner cruise on Sydney harbour, so I couldn’t be more excited! Then saturday we are off to Newcastle to explore our home for the next to months & get into the swing of things with our internships! All this change still has my head spinning around a bit, but I’m still very blessed & excited for what is next to come!
