Time flies

Hello again.

I can’t believe it’s two weeks since I arrived in Melbourne.. Still I feel like I’ve been here forever. It’s strange, isn’t it? There’s so much going on in this city ALL THE TIME, and I love it.

I’ve seen my first cricket game ever together with 90.000 people at Melbourne Cricket Ground (England – Australia, world cup). Such a cool stadium! Did I enjoy it? Yes. Will I ever see one again? No. The game was boring. It took a while to understand the rules, and I still don’t get all of them. Atmosphere was OK but I expected a lot more considering the number of people watching. We managed to stay for 2,5 hours, the entire game lasted 7 (!!) How crazy is that.

I am now done with the registration and enrolment part. The University area is nice, and very different from back home. I don’t know how exchange students at Malmö University are enrolled but I hope things are smoother for them. I’ve attended so many unnecessary, still compulsory, information sessions. And I’m not just saying this because I’m lazy. They’ve really been unnecessary. Definitely handing in some tips for improvement. All the wonderful exchange students I’ve met so far though!! Wow, they are great. This Monday the Exchange club had their welcoming dinner and it was so much fun. We had Japanese tapas together and chatted a lot.

As for accommodation my friends and I have not left our hostel yet, and truth is we might stay here the entire time. It’s the greatest place ever, located right in city centre. Wonderful people staying here too!! Have to say I’m very happy about not living at campus, especially as I will spend all my time at the clinical school at Austin Hospital. Lectures are held there too.

Now I have to enjoy the sunny weather. Talk to you later.

So it begins..

Hiiiii!!

I’m finally in Melbourne and I can’t really believe it. It’s three years since my last time here. The trip went according to plans although 20 hours at a plane felt like forever. I met a friendly danish guy at the airport in Copenhagen and he will be studying at the same University as me. So far so good!!

I’ve been lucky enough to have two friends from Sweden waiting for me to arrive. It was lovely seeing them again. They have been traveling in Asia and Australia since November and will now settle in Melbourne with me. I can’t tell you how great it is having them here :*. The three of us will be staying at a hostel until we can find our own place. I’m so jet lagged at the moment, it’s insane. Slept the entire day from 11 until 18, went to bed at 23 and then woke up at 3, unable to fall back asleep. I’ve now been awake almost four hours, it’s 7 o’clock and people are starting to wake up. Hopefully I’ll get in the rhythm soon. Orientation week starts Monday and I look forward seeing what La Trobe University looks like. I have not taken any pictures so far but I hope to share some with you soon.
