The start of the Bondi to Coogee walk

Cliffside view

What trip to Australia would be complete without seeing a beach. Or better yet, walking along the cliffs and pathways between some of the beaches. Aussie culture really is all about sand, surf and sun. The famous/popular beaches around here are Bondi, Coogee and Manly. So far I have walked from Bondi to Coogee; the walk takes about 1.5 hrs and is all along the cliffs and the edge of the water. So understandably it was gorgeous, and I will be doing it again for sure.

I also have taken the ferry out to Watson’s bay. On the way we passed Rose Bay and Shark Island. At Watson’s there is a small park with a lighthouse, and great views out onto the ocean since it just about as east coast of Sydney as you can get. At the pier there are a few small restaurants, bars and thin sandy strips. There was even a hermit crab race!

Marille und Aprikose

by Naomi

I never thought I was “good at languages.” I took Spanish classes for four years and liked it, but never felt confident speaking. My parents stopped attempting to teach me Hebrew when I was little because I was stubborn.

Mari Mari!

by Idil

Mari Mari means "hello" in Mapuzungun, and Mapuzungun, the Mapuche language, means "the language of the earth." Che means "people," and kaflu is "blue." Mapuches, meaning "the people of the earth," said if we learn Spanish while we are in Argentina, we need to learn Mapuzungun while in Bariloche.

Financing Your Foreign Fancies

by Maya

Here I am, terrified, 3 days away from my travel to an entirely new world (or so it seems to little old me). For most of my life, I’ve been rather stagnant – born in Houston, TX, moved a whopping two hours away to Austin, and remained there for college as well.
