Location: Sydney, Australia

After a long 14 1/2 hour flight, we finally arrived in chilly Sydney. In the cab, we had some interesting conversations about kangaroos with the driver. We arrived at the colorful hostel and settled into life in Sydney. Next, we had an amazing and chilly surf lesson at Manly Beach! Although the waves were small, it was one of the coolest experiences ever! After working up an appetite, we tried the infamous Aussie meat pies. By the end of day one, we all have become so close. I can’t wait for what day two has to offer!! 🙂
