September 05, 2017 Brisbane, City Of Dreams
I gained a deeper sense of how to live on my own. I learned how to budget not only my money but my time. With a city (and country) full of things to do it can be taxing on your time and wallet. Learning this balance taught me a lot. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned heaps about the social structure and history of Australia as well as the unique plants and animals on that continent. I learned just as much about myself and would definitely consider it worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review

June 11, 2017 Brisbane And Uq
Traveling around all over Australia and the surrounding countries, I definitely learned a lot. I became super appreciative for everything I have. It was also good to be so completely on my own, not knowing anyone here at all. That's when you learn the most. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I became way more outgoing, patient, and adventurous. For the changes I can see in myself daily since I've been home, it was definitely worthwhile. - University of Redlands View Entire Review
I gained independence and the ability to navigate in foreign places. - Austin College View Entire Review
Past Review
