A lot of us think about studying abroad, but few of us actually get the opportunity.  Meet Valerie Lapointe, whose blog depicts her experience of taking classes on the other side of the globe – Australia!  Filled with beautiful pictures and detailed descriptions, Valerie captures her time in Australia perfectly.  For those of us who can’t travel for a year, live vicariously through Valerina!
