As the internship was crawling to an end, my anxiety began to take over. ‘What do you mean it was already time to go home, I just got here!’ I was overwhelmed at the fact that time went so fast and I didn’t get to do everything that I wanted to complete. The girls and I made the most of our final days, refusing to spending weeknights indoors, and
going out and exploring the city. We ate at amazing restaurants on the water, took paths we normally didn’t travel on, and just spent time appreciating where we are. We found this place that had the most amazing Acai bowls, so much fruit and flavor packed into one little bowl I couldn’t even eat it all it was too good! If you’re in Newcastle and you get the chance, go find this little gem on Darby St. called the W.I.A store, not only do they have acai bowls but cute tee’s as well. I made the promise to myself as well that I would get a tattoo while I was there. To me tattoo’s don’t need to have a deep meaning all the time, it may just be something you want on your body to express yourself. The tattoo I got does have a meaning to me, yet I know it will be too hard to explain to so many people, so I’ll let them think what they want about it.
Our last days we were also able to attend a local rugby game for the Newcastle Knights. Personally I was still a bit shaky on the understanding of the game, but it was still really awesome to be a part of the atmosphere.
Newcastle became my home for 2 months and I was so grateful to have experienced my time there with such amazing people. I will be going back to visit very soon. The city is wonderful, the beaches are beautiful, the people are so nice, and there is just so much to explore. I can’t wait to go back.
