If I had to describe the city in one word, it would be cultured...

Day 7 wow a week flew by! This was the busiest day of the trip so far. Day started off very early at the US Consulate where we were able to talk with a political and financial officer mostly. We learned there’s five different departments within the consulate and the roles of each one. We also were informed that the younger generations don’t care as much about the alliance between the United States and Australia which could potentially be harmful in the future.

We continued our morning with a visi...

Thursday - we departed Melbourne in the morning and arrived here in Sydney around 12:30 p.m.  Our van was waiting for us and took us right to the hotel...  The hotel is located in an awesome location - right in the heart of the CBD (Central Business District)...  minutes from the train station, Darli...

Now that we have moved on from Melbourne to Sydney it is time to look back and reflect on everything we saw, did, and learned there. We had two business visits, lunch with a Clarkson grad, a trip to the US Consulate, a coffeehouse, a brewery tour, a free day, and a trip to the Old Melbourne Gaol. Not too much right?

Not for us, we enjoyed every moment of every day, or at least I did. Melbourne is a beautiful city with many sights to see and no way to ever experience it all in as short a period of...

Our experience here in Melbourne has been great. We had a few more professional visits, going to the U.S. Consulate, IBM, DeBella Coffee and touring the Carleton Brewery.

The visit to the consulate was pretty interesting, because I wasn’t exactly sure what made a consulate different than an embassy or really what they did there. The political and economic officer that spoke with us said that the only real difference between the embassy in Canberra and the consulate in Melbourne was that the consu...

The trip to Melbourne from Cairns seemed like a breeze having just came off of a 24-hour day of traveling. The city is awesome to see from an aerial view. Having only been to two other cities in my life, the size and infrastructure that the city boasts is very impressive to me and had my attention until the airplane landed.

The first night in Melbourne we had a group reception at the Charles Dickens Tavern where we had appetizers and cocktails. The group then dispersed and went separate ways. The...

After a less than peaceful, small child-filled flight from Cairns we found ourselves in the vibrant city of Melbourne. The bustling city instantly brought us to life from the draining flight we had just been on. I found myself in awe gazing at the intricate architecture that makes up the city’s beautiful skyline.

Melbourne itself is a very clean city, which is a bit surprising as it is home to somewhere around 4.4 million people in a very condensed urban area. Along with an impeccably clean city,...

Arriving in Melbourne you could tell the atmosphere was so much more different from Cairns. Melbourne is a much larger city so it had that vibe, as well as Melbourne seemed more business oriented here rather than a touristy city like Cairns. Our first night here was amazing, we went to a tavern and got some drinks as well as ate some really good appetizers and enjoying the footy game with everyone on the trip.

My second day in Melbourne was by far my most favorite day! On the second day we went t...

Born and raised in the countryside, I am definitely biased when it comes to comparing the beauty of rural and urban areas. However, Melbourne’s beauty cannot be denied— even by me. So far, it has proved itself to be a very efficient and welcoming city.

Our first full day in Melbourne involved a day tour at Phillip Island. I was very skeptical after reading the itinerary when I realized that Phillip Island, a whopping 40 square miles, was supposed to entertain all fifteen of us from 9am until 10pm...

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, the most beautiful city in the world, if you ask someone from Melbourne that is. The second leg of our trip began this past Saturday after arriving in Melbourne in the afternoon. After checking in and getting some rest we were off to the Charles Dickson’s Tavern for our second reception of the trip.  There was a round of good food and drinks with some great people. After spending some considerable time chatting and talking some of us went and walked around the cit...

Fifteen degrees south of the equator in a land described as desolate and dangerous lays a beautiful tropic. Our first day of Australia brought us to Cairns, a small city in north Queensland nestled into the side of a rainforest. If I had to describe Cairns, desolate is the last word I would use. Massive mountains with luscious green trees surround the city. There isn’t an inch of Cairns that doesn't have green in it. 


Our first night was a great introduction into what Cairns is. To start off our...
