Running Around in Winter

Centennial Park

Winter fireworks

June/July is Australia’s winter, and yes it is chilly, but compared to winters back home this is great for coldest months. There is currently a fair called ‘Yule’ in Darling Harbor. There are fireworks on Saturdays, ice-skating, and zorbs that float on the water. With spending 15$ at the Lindt store and you can go in one. So fun and surprisingly challenging!

Hiking Mosman to Manly beach

In an effort to offset all my delicious sweets and foods I’ve been eating I go running jogging and walking during the up-hills a few days a week. Definitely too cold to swim, but perfect for jogging, and I’ve gotten to see the neighborhood we live in, many sunsets and a park nearby as well. So sad this trip is over in two days!

Figuring out how to eat paella

by Abigail

We weaved through the hanging scarves and bowls of spices of the outdoor vendors to reach our final destination of the day and appease our growling stomachs. I had designed the perfect “authentic” Barcelona day for my visiting friends, but it wasn’t exactly going as planned.

Happy Home-stay

by Danielle

When I was researching programs for a second study abroad adventure, I had many factors new to take into account. This time, I was going into my senior year, and had very few options in terms of classes.

Singles' Day

by Jason Renner

Being in China has meant that I have missed a lot of American holidays and occasions. Spending these holidays in China has been interesting because they are either not celebrated or celebrated in a different way.
