I had already been to Australia but I wanted to visit Sydney and as this destination was eligible for a scholarship, I quite naturally decided to go there.
When I arrived, I met my “Australian mother”, who was very friendly. She showed me around the house and told me to make myself comfortable. I took a shower and I went straight to bed because I had been travelling for two days already. Another girl, who attended the same school as me, was also staying at my host mother’s place. She took me to the school on the first day and told me where I could buy my bus pass. The school is great, even more beautiful than what I had imagined, and there were people from the whole world, including from the UAE, Venezuela, Italy, etc. The teachers are very friendly, they don’t have any weird accent and they are very helpful. Besides, there is a street in Sydney where there are many Spanish restaurants (Liverpool Street).
My stay went by really fast because I always had a lot to do. I visited museums, parks; I went to parties with people I had just met. In short: I fell in love with Sydney. I strongly recommend this city, there is no pollution here, the country scrupulously respects the Kyoto protocol and the urban transportation system is widely used.
I would not trade this experience for anything else in the world and I encourage everyone to travel to this absolutely amazing country waiting to be discovered!
