The First Beach – Perth, Australia

This image captures the moment that I walked onto a beach during my study abroad experience in Perth, Australia for the very first time. Some friends and I had taken a short road trip north from Perth to visit a national park and go camping.  We found the perfect spot to set up camp behind some sand dunes at the end of a very twisted, old, and forgotten road.  After climbing over the dunes for a bit we finally arrived at the beach.  It was small, vacant, and beautiful.  This image reminds me of the immense excitement and happiness I was feeling at that moment. I had several months of adventuring and exploring in store for me and I felt so content.  Being back here in the US makes me feel a bit detached from my experiences in Australia.  Having these pictures to look at helps me to remember all the good times and makes me feel very thankful that I was able to spend a semester abroad.  Aussie Aussie Aussie!!!
