7th july.






July 7th 2011. 

It is not often that I remember exactly what I was doing exactly a year ago. But this year today I do. 

It was a year ago today that I left for Australia. July 7th 2011 was the scariest and most exciting day of my life so far. 

I can't find the words to say anything about Australia and my experience. It was a beautiful place with beautiful people. In my one month there I fell in love with it. I miss it so much it hurts. Going to Australia changed me so much.

It was the shortest and best month of my life. It went by so fast, it doesn't even feel like it happened, but i'm glad it did.

I was expecting for this to be a longer post, but i guess the only way for you to understand is to go to Sydney for a month yourself and see what happens. 

If ANY of you are ever considering doing an exchange program anywhere DO IT. It will change you. If you need convincing email me and I will tell you why you should.
