Off To The Down Under

My next adventure has begun. I will be visiting the not small island of Australia. It is a bit odd, after two summers in Japan I am going to Australia (it is kinda close to Japan…kinda). It is even odder that I have to pack autumn/winter clothes instead of summer clothes (btw it is always opposite day in Australia).

I will be staying in Sydney, which turns out to NOT be the capital of Australia…(it is Canberra) for an entire month. I know I know, Sydney doesn’t count as all of Australia, but my university student lifestyle and budget can only allow for so much, plus I have some super friends in Sydney that will keep me from feeling lonely in a new place.

Some fun facts about Sydney, Australia
 - It is illegal to hold a koala in New South Wales unless you have a fancy license to hold one.
 - Kinder eggs are legal
 - There is a suburb called Newtown and it is not new 
 - You can’t hug koalas
 - They have pretty decent public transportation (unlike Miami..)
 - University of Sydney has a building that looks like a castle
 - Most of the museums are free
 - You cannot hug or hold koalas 

Watch out for this tropical bird leave her comfort zone tackle autumn in the place where everything is out to kill you.
