By far the best part of this experience of my year abroad has been all of the people I have met. From when I first landed meeting my roommate and flatmates was amazingly comforting in a foreign place. The group of friends I made my first semester I think will be friends forever, at the end of the semester it was so hard to lose them and to have to start over but it was worth it because in my second semester I made so many more friends from all different places. Through my travels around Australia and New Zealand I was able to meet a unique mix of people from around the world and was able to learn so much from them. Below is a sampling of the some of the people I’ve met so far on my travels.
