• Your weekly Adventure Agenda: Explore Australia from home

    We’re going out. Outback.

  • 6 things I learnt from studying abroad


    So why study abroad? It can be expensive, you’ll have to start your social status from the bottom and how will you deal with the FOMO of home?

  • Top 6 Things to Do in Adelaide

  • A Student Guide to New Zealand: places to visit, places to eat and places to party

    If you’re considering studying abroad to expand your horizons and experience an unforgettable semester away, New Zealand needs to be at the top of your list.

    Why New Zealand you might ask? Is it their infamous wine country or world-class coffee? Their massive sheep population that boasts a sheep to human ratio of six sheep for every one person (holy sheep!)? Or maybe, New Zealand being the true “Middle Earth” from Lord of The Rings is what sparks your interest (guilty!).
