Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Pack your bags and study abroad in Christchurch!
Tucked in between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Christchurch is known for its beautiful gardens (its nickname is the Garden City), rich European culture, and high quality of living. Need to clear your head? Travel to the Southern Alps for a challenging hike that will make you feel like you’re on top of the clouds.
When you study abroad in Christchurch outdoor activities, exploring the University of Canterbury campus, and enjoying the laid-back city lifestyle will all be routine.
Alright ladies and gents, today we’re going to take a step off of the excitement and adventure train and go for a ride on something a little less interesting to some, but incredibly helpful to others. I am talking about going abroad with a pre-existing medical condition. I’m going to cover the logistics and slightly hard reality of having Type 1 Diabetes while planning on and participating in studying abroad.
As August came to a close, the University of Canterbury officially hit the halfway mark for Semester 2 and the midterm break began! For two weeks I willed myself to forget about school work and try to focus on the moment and thoroughly enjoy the “now”. I really pushed myself to not get preoccupied with thoughts of assignments and tests that I have for the remainder of the semester or the random moments of homesickness that I would feel throughout the break.
Today’s blog post might not be too exciting or informative in terms of the latest and greatest adventures and information about New Zealand and if that is why you are here, I understand if you wish to stop and go find another post...but,I urge you to continue with my post, for maybe it will give you some guidance, or at least entertain you with my thoughts.
