Treats I had in Australia

These are a few treats I ate while studying abroad in Australia. It’s great to sample and try new things in a different country.

Treats

I had strawberry macarons. It used to be a pet-peeve of mine when people confused macaroons and macarons, but now I don’t mind. I had some chocolate cake with a strawberry on top. My friends and I made crepes and fruit salad. My university held a fair where we tried tiny vegan cupcakes. they were surprisingly really tasty.

Starting from the top left corner and going clock-wise are strawberry macarons, chocolate cake, crepes and fruit salad, and tiny vegan cupcakes.

Crocodile Burger

I tried a crocodile burger for the first time at the Blackbird Cafe in Sydney. Oddly enough it tasted like chicken and had the consistency of tuna.

Local Coffee

Lattes from local cafes in Australia taste really fresh and really kick-started my coffee addiction. Wish I could have finished this one, but I knocked it over while talking with my hands.

Gloria Jean’s

cofffee shop treats

“Gloria Jean’s” is similar to Starbuck’s and I tried a marshmallow cone from there. It is filled with mini-marshmallows and topped with frosting, chocolate, and sprinkles.  I plan to make some with my little sister eventually. It is a mess/melt-free version of a summertime classic.

Guacamole

Lastly, I made homemade guacamole  and ‘American lemonade’ with a housemate and it was super tasty. In Australia lemonade is just ‘Sprite’ or carbonated lemon-flavored soda. The ingredients were fresh and considerably cheaper than in America. However, lemons are super expensive there. I miss getting tropical fruits cheaper when I was abroad.

ISA Study Abroad Contest

isa prizes

I won this swag pack from International Studies Abroad (ISA) for answering their trivia questions correctly, telling them a brief story from my time abroad, and telling them a fact about where I stayed. First, ISA was Globallinks, my study abroad agency.

The trivia questions were:

  1. Who designed the Sydney Opera House?
  2. Which ISA city has 42 beaches and is a center of surfing activity (hint: it’s in South America)?
  3. Name 2 of the 3 languages that are spoken in Morocco.
  4. Which ISA country has the highest density of robots in the world?

Answers:

  1. Jorn Utzon
  2.  Florianopolis, Brazil
  3. Modern Standard Arabic and Berber
  4. Japan

My story was:

Last year, when I went to a friend’s house in Australia and I heard the sounds of rustling and scratching coming from the boarded up fireplace. We removed the board to reveal that a possum had scurried down the chimney with its baby on its back. My Australian friend said, “Well, if that isn’t the most Australian thing to happen… Looks like it’s time for me to move far far away. My landlord will not like this one bit”.

Fact: I learned that in the city of Newcastle, where I stayed, their biggest export was coal.

My prizes were an Australia button, ISA passport holder, luggage lock, and tags. In other words, the perfect gear for the next adventure. Overall, I enjoyed the contest and love how they are encouraging people to share thier travel stories.

Heart-Shaped Photo Wall Pinterest-Inspired

dorm heart wall

Want to know a cute and creative way to personalize a dorm? In 2015, at the beginning of Spring semester, there was a snow day so I decided to decorate my room with a heart made of the travel photos I had taken from studying abroad in Australia. Fortunately, I found the heart-shaped photo template on Pinterest and it’s a wonderful way to display photographs!

the break down of the heart is as follows (from the top down):

First, you’ll need 40 images printed out (I used 3 x 2 dimensions) and preferably painter’s tape.

  1. 2 rows of 2 photos
  2. 2 rows of 3 photos
  3. 7 photos
  4. 7 photos
  5. 6 photos
  6. 4 photos
  7. 3 photos
  8. 2 photos
  9. 1 photo

Overall, there are nine rows in total. As a tip, I would start with the two rows of 7 photos in the 3rd and 4th row of the heart first and then arrange the top and bottom of the heart after.

Next, put rolled up tape behind each photo to attach it to the wall you want to put the heart on. Finally, step back from afar and rearrange the photos to your liking. Also, try to experiment with the variety of photos and colors you use.

heart photo wall

Seriously, this is so perfect for dorms because then you won’t damage the walls. I don’t know if this has changed but when I was in college, some they could charge you for damages made to the walls of your room. So this way you get to customize to your heart’s content. ;P

Additionally, you can decorate a dorm by ordering prints that stick and re-stick like the ones from the Photage App. Use promo code:HONEYBUNNYTWEE to get $5 off your first print! In other words, I’m an ambassador for Photage so when you download the app using my referral link or use my code for the first time, you get a discount and I get credit at no additional cost to you.

How do you display photographs on your wall? If you have more interior decorating inspiration I’d love to see it!

Icebreaker Travel-Related Fun

world map

This icebreaker was used by my boss at a Global Ambassadors meeting (which I help co-host as an intern at Uhart) and I thought I’d share it because I thought it was a great, reusable idea to get people excited about travel.

First, use a world map and attach it to a corkboard. Second, supply all participants with pins in six different colors (we used blue, orange, yellow, green, pink, and purple) give them one of each.

Then have them place their pins according to the meanings of each color.

For example:

white board color coded
  • Blue: Where are your ancestors from? (For me it was Vietnam)
  • Orange: What country do you want to visit/ study abroad in? (I picked Spain)
  • Yellow: Favorite place you’ve visited (Australia)
  • Green: Favorite film/book that has stayed with you (pin the location) (I picked nowhere because the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series takes place in space :P)
  • Pink: Where is your favorite food from? (Japan because I love sushi)
  • Purple: What country would you like to learn more about? (I picked Greece)

Finally, go through one color at a time and have everyone discuss where they put their pins and why. It really gets a conversation going.

Study Abroad Fair Chalking

I worked as an administrative intern at my university‘s Study Abroad Office and to advertise for our study abroad fair last October, it was my job to write chalk messages around campus to raise awareness for the event.

Study Abroad Quotes

“When in doubt travel”

“Wanderlust”

“It’s not about the destination it’s about the journey”

“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer $$ (figuratively)”

Before I could chalk I had to get permission. Otherwise, the Student Affairs Office would wash it away. I couldn’t have any chalk drawings/writing under overhangs. I could only reserve up to three days for chalking. After the second day, it rained and the chalk washed away. Thankfully, a lot of my friends told me they had seen the messages. Also, students asked me about the fair while I was chalking in the late evening and I answered.

Chalking was fun, but it made me miss going through the process of going abroad too. That’s precisely why I’m going abroad again to Spain for an International Business class during Spring Break (so excited!).  It makes me happy that some students currently going to study abroad for spring semester saw the chalk and decided to give studying abroad a chance. It was one of the best decisions I ever made so I’m glad to be able to help others find their own dream destinations.

When I Grow Up Party

Screenshot 2016-01-12 22.55.27

During orientation week while I was studying in Australia, my uni threw a ‘When I Grow Up’ party.  I had only been on campus for about a week and didn’t have any costume so I dressed as the next best thing… a zebra. Yes, and you thought your dreams were hard; try becoming an entirely different species.

2014-07-30 20.25.54

Luckily, one of the other girls I came with dressed as a safari explorer (completely by coincidence) so it almost seemed like it was planned.

When I Grow Up

2014-07-30 20.41.35

I was able to borrow our friend, Mumma Bri’s taxi that she made so then I upgraded to a taxi driving zebra… dream big. I lost the taxi on the the dance floor (oops). The next day, we found one of the wheels near the engineering building with the smashed taxi nearby (double oops). As it turns out: zebras can’t drive (who knew?). Thankfully, Mumma Bri was a good sport about it and wasn’t even mad (best house mother ever).

2014-07-30 22.35.04

After returning to America, I became more confident and sure about my career goals. In other words, I’m happy to announce that being a zebra (taxi driver) is no longer part of the plan.

Have you ever had to improvise a costume?
