I’ve been doing lots of reflecting, looking back on memories, and remembering all of my fun times in Australia. For one of my last posts, I wanted to include a list of my top ten favorite photos/memories of my time in Australia! Most of these have been included in earlier posts, with a few new ones. Enjoy!
#1 – Taken in Mawson Lakes. Every time I see this photo, I get a little teary-eyed. This was the last photo I took in Australia, on my second to last night. This photo, above all else, symbolizes something that I thought I wasn’t ready for – leaving Australia. I was so terrified to leave the life I had made in Australia, the routine I had made, and all my new friends. I didn’t think I had the strength to board the plane in Sydney and fly over the ocean to the States. But this photo reminds that I did it. And it’s one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. But it brings hope, too. Deep down, I know that I will someday return to Australia. Be it for work, or “holiday,” or anything in between. I know that I will get to come back and remember why I fell in love with Australia.
