And the decision is.... AUSTRALIA!

Let's put another shrimp on the barbie mate...

I'm going to Australia kids! I met with my study abroad advisor today and we decided on a destination, and Australia it is. Since I unfortunately speak no other language besides english, I want to travel somewhere that obviously speaks the same language as I do. We had it narrowed down between Scotland and Australia, but I feel like this is the place for me. I am SO BEYOND EXCITED!



If all goes according to plan, I will continue my dietetic studies at the University of Wollongong. You pronounce it, Wool-n-gong, ha! It is about 50 miles south of Sydney (an hour train ride) and the main campus has many views overlooking the Pacific Ocean.





I don't want to get too far ahead of myself here. There is still A LOT of paper work, money, and time invested ahead of me but I know it will all be worth it once I'm there. I plan to go in the spring of 2011. Let the preparation begin!

Main goal: pet a kangaroo. Kidding! Sorta...
