Today was the last day of Orientation here at Bond. It was a great first week. Although I started off the week with one of the most severe sunburns I’ve had it was still a great. Monday we arrived and got settled into our apartment at the Reserve. It’s like paradise we have our own pool, gym, hot tub, and access to a lake. The price of things here was a shock to us. Groceries and other essentials like gas and clothing were sometimes double what they are at home. On Tuesday we met two guys from Canada who live in our building named Drew and Kal. They’re law majors and they’re staying a Bond for more than just one semester.
Yesterday we made our way to Broad beach. It is as pretty as the pictures. The ocean was crystal clear and as blue as could be. There was a surf competition going on where we were laying out and it was so awesome to see. The waves here get huge so I’m excited to learn to surf.
We haven’t met very many students since classes haven’t started yet so I’m anxious to meet other study abroad students!
That’s all for now, classes start tomorrow so I can’t wait to fill everyone in next week!
