Travels: Weekend Getaways

Hello world! It’s been a minute since I’ve been able to post, and I apologize for my absence! School has become increasingly harder as the weeks move on. Lots of essays, lectures, assignments, and exams. While it has been stressful, I have managed to plan and prioritize my assignments in a way thats really working…

Travels: Chinatown

This Tuesday a friend and I decided that we had had enough of Uni life for the time being, so we took an adventure into town to find the neighborhood that most big cities have: Chinatown. In Sydney, it’s pretty easy to get to. You get off at the Town Hall train station and walk…

So it’s officially been almost 7 days since I’ve set foot on Australian soil. It’s actually quite difficult to describe the emotions that come with these first few days, because of how calm it’s actually been. North Ryde is north of Sydney’s city center by about 40 minutes. It’s a quieter suburb where Macquarie University…
