Bound for the Land Down Under!

G'day mates! Today marks the 1-week count-down till my date of departure to Cairns, Australia. My itinerary boasts of stops in Chicago, Phoenix, San Fransisco, and Sydney before reaching my final destination in Cairns (pronounced "cans"). To prepare for the adventure, I have a genuine Australian "Barmah" bush hat, a Dummies guide to Australia, and enough excitement to last the 5 month period I'll be spending in the Land Down Under! Thanks to the folks behind the Shinn study abroad scholarship for helping fund this exploration! And all you readers - keep an eye out for updates once I arrive in the tropics!
