I’ve been in Australia for 2 years now, and I’ve travelled to the main states such as Victoria and Sydney. During the semester break, I had the opportunity to visit Australia’s hidden destination – Tasmania. Also known as “Tassie”, it is located south of the Australian mainland.
Before I started my first semester at QUT, I decided to spend my ‘last hurrah’ with a trip to Sydney which is located east of Australia. This is my second time in Sydney and all I can say it’s a blessing and at the same time a curse. Why? Because the list of things to do is endless!
Moving to Brisbane has been the best decision of my life, but also the toughest because moving to a new city, adjust to a new lifestyle isn’t always as fun as people think it is. I’ve been living in Brisbane for a year now and one thing that I’ve noticed that is common for international students is the feeling of homesickness. I personally believe that your surroundings can be a factor to this feeling – which is why choosing where you will be living is one of the most important decisions you have to decide early on (even before you move to Brisbane!).
