Oz: Margaret River

Surfer dudes. No shoes. River mouth. Down South. And that was my weekend in Margaret River, three hours south of Perth. Here are some photos I took at the beach while trying to figure out how to work a professional camera!

1 Year of Whitmanythoughts

A few days ago, a sweet little memory popped up on Facebook: my first blog post on Whitmanythoughts. I cannot believe it has been a year since I started writing about my travels. I feel like I have written so much, yet have so much more to share. I have expressed over and over again… Continue reading 1 Year of Whitmanythoughts

Oz: Game Time

I believe I just encountered the most relaxed weekend of my semester here so far. My weekend consisted of a mix of homework and night adventures in Northbridge for some time away from my piles of work. However, Sunday ended up being a great day to experience some Australian culture: I attended an Australian Football… Continue reading Oz: Game Time

Oz: Week 12 of Classes

This week proved how small the world really is. I was able to spare a night from my university work Wednesday and spend time with a friend I met in Berlin last summer. He showed me around the less touristy party of Northbridge, which is a neighborhood of Perth. I felt lucky to be able… Continue reading Oz: Week 12 of Classes

My crawl started at seven (there were… Continue reading Oz: Magic, Music and Markets

Thoughts: Finding My Way to My Mom

I also have heard that somehow and some way, Mom is always right and if you don’t believe it now, one day she is… Continue reading Thoughts: Finding My Way to My Mom

Oz: Week 11 of Classes

A week during which I planned to be checking things off of my to-do list turned into a week of work accompanied by a lot of play. Monday served to be a day of class, homework and recuperating from the amazing Southwest trip from which I just returned. Tuesday was about the same, until my… Continue reading Oz: Week 11 of Classes

Thoughts on Turning 21: Continued

If you told me I would be celebrating my 21st birthday in Australia, I would have deemed you crazy. While I was in Italy last summer, another person on the trip celebrated his 21st birthday at the Amalfi Coast, and I thought about how grand it must be to celebrate your birthday in such a… Continue reading Thoughts on Turning 21: Continued
