Canberra!

Start of Spring break definitely marks the need of a well-deserved trip. Lucky me, this trip was mainly paid for by my parents [for once!] due to the need to renew my passport [finally legal in terms of getting official documents done!] before my student visa gets cancelled as well. Took a budget flight w Kristin to Sydney before continuing on our 3 hour journey by bus to Canberra.
Spent the next day getting my passport renewed, exploring the Parliament House and the Australian War Memorial before hopping on bus back to Sydney again. Though there really isn’t much to do or eat in Canberra but the galleries and museums kinda make up for it πŸ™‚
