Finally, I finished all my assignments!! During exam week, I explored campus’ study spots with my friends, and my favourite spot was the student hub’s terrace. Also, good weather has always helped me to be productive! When I got stuck in my studies, I went to the beach to take a break. It has become warmer from October, I watched sunset many times at Glenelg. When we were in luck, we were able to see wild dolphins at the beach. There are a lot of nice cafes and restaurants there, as well.
Since I came here, going to a Saturday market is one of my customs. I highly recommend going to Stirling market in Adelaide Hills. More than 80 stalls of local and artisan producers are selling tasty cakes, fresh vegetables, arts, plants, flowers, fashion, local produce natural products and secondhand books. You can enjoy an excellent shopping experience with live music.
On weekdays, I discover CBD seeking nice coffees with my friends. One of my favourite cafes in city is Café Troppo located next to Whitmore Square. Everything they serve is sourced locally, and their daily special menus offer you seasonal meals.
I’ve been here for five months, and Adelaide has never failed to make me feel like I’m living in my dream!! Flinders is in suburb, a calm and chill area. It is the best environment to focus on my studies. All the university staff and professors are supportive. I’m grateful for having them and everything they have done for me.
It was the first time for me to stay in a foreign country and study abroad, but I was able to live safely and happily. I learned a lot of things in Adelaide. I can’t be thankful enough for all the people who tried to give me the best thing I can get. This study abroad experience has given me a wonderful memory that I will never forget for the rest of my life!
