My First Week

All is well in Australia.  After suffering from jet lag, I am finally settling in to a routine.  This weekend I went hiking in the Blue Mountains.  PSA: In Australia, it does fall below freezing so pack warmly.  I unfortunately did not.  After an exhausting and cold hike, I settled into my accommodation for the night.  The next morning I woke bright and early to explore the mountains at sunrise.  Later that day, I embarked on a new adventure in the caves.  The campus is absolutely beautiful.  I am doing great.  G’Day Mates!

P.S. They do not actually say G’Day in Australia.

Welcome to my Blog

Hi! I’m Emily Riley and I am studying abroad in Sydney, Australia for my first semester of college.  I’m so excited and grateful to attend the University of Sydney for a semester.  I leave for Australia in a couple days and I feel slightly nervous and overwhelmed.  I still have so much to do.  Preparing for a four month adventure can be quite stressful, but luckily I have the support of my family and friends.   As I say good-bye to my home in Nebraska, it is bitter-sweet.  Although I am thrilled to embrace another culture and learn about myself, I am also terrified by the distance and reminiscent of my upbringing.  Well, I better get back to packing.  Thanks for reading!
