Since day one of applying to college I have always known that I wanted to study abroad. One of the reasons that I especially picked Delaware, was because of the 7 week period in between the Fall and Spring Semesters. While living in a foreign country for several months seems like a dream, I didn’t want to have to give up a semester at Delaware for it. So I thought that the 7 week break was a perfect opportunity to study somewhere. The process of studying abroad (at least for the winter session) begins about a year in advance. So this winter break I did some research to figure out where I really, really want to go. My heart is set on heading to Australia to continue studying my major. I’d like to do the trip that splits the time between Australia and New Zealand. I want to eat the food, the fruit, see the great barrier reef, go sky diving again and especially LIVE on the beach. And of course find some kangaroos and koala bears too! While studying abroad is definitely extra money to pay, it is something that I believe my college experience would not be complete without. I’m looking forward to the application process this Spring and crossing my fingers to be accepted to head to Australia in January of 2013!
