I have sat down numerous times to write this article, thinking long and hard about how I could possibly sum up the best three months of my life and how I could possibly end it. And then I realized: I am having such a hard time talking about the end of the semester because it does not feel as if it is really over.
One of the many perks of studying abroad is the ability to access and visit places that would be difficult to visit under typical circumstances. I took advantage of this ability and planned a trip to Melbourne, Australia’s second-largest city. In short, the trip was definitely a learning experience.
I had heard it a million times: “Studying abroad was the best experience of my life!” Having already had what I had considered to be a good number of pretty great experiences, I was skeptical. However, after living in Australia for just over a month, I can say that I will forever be one of those people who tell everyone and anyone how amazing studying abroad is.
