Home sweet home

It’s been a week since I got back to the States. I can’t believe that a week ago I was living a different life half way across the globe! It’s bittersweet to be back. On one hand I missed my dog and family so much, on the other I already miss the place that quickly…

Just another day in Dunedin…

Dunner stunner

It’s officially been 2 weeks since the start of classes. I can’t believe it’s already been so long! These 2 weeks have been spent getting to know my flat mates, exploring cool areas in Dunedin, and relaxing and feeling out my classes, after all – I’m not here on vacation, no matter how much it…
