Hi there, I have less than a month left in this beautiful country. Classes finished at the end of October and I joined a surf camp for a week. It was amazing to learn how to surf but we also quickly realized how challenging it is to ride waves. We drove up north from Sydney for about 6 hours to spend half of the week at a national park where we had the entire beach to ourselves. There we stayed in the camp dorms near the beach, enjoyed fabulous food and campfires at night. We were truly getting a good feel for what it means to live a surfer’s life. The other half of the trip was spent even further north just a couple hours away from world famous Byron Bay. This surf camp was a bit bigger and you were able to meet people from all over the world either travelling or there to become surf instructors or simply “living the dream”.
My internship has also finished a few weeks ago and all I have left to do is write a report. I have enjoyed my time at the internship a lot. There are some really great people working here who are very kind and interesting as well as passionate about what the company is all about. I enjoyed it a lot during my time at ADIQ but now it is certainly time for me to move on and challenge myself in a new way. I can’t wait for the next journey in life!
On the coming Friday, my German friend Jonas and former housemate will join me for a fabulous road trip through New Zealand. I am absolutely excited about it as this country is really beautiful. For all of you who have ever seen Lord of the Rings can imagine how it is like. After that trip I only have a few days left in Sydney, Australia before I head out to see Dubai on December 4 and afterwards visit my family in Germany for Christmas. I haven’t been home for Christmas since 2007 and therefore this means a lot to me. My magnificent year with 26 flights and having visited 8 countries will end in New York over New Years. And then, it is time to enjoy my very last 2 quarters at UW before graduating and moving on to new adventures.
See you all at UW soon and make sure to visit Australia someday in your life (=
