In October, I snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef near Cairns, QLD, Australia, and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
This past Fall, I studied at the University of Canberra in Australia as a part of a Communications Exchange program with my university. When I wasn’t studying, I was fortunate enough to be able to travel up and down the east coast of Australia and explore different locations, including the incredible Great Barrier Reef.
I saw fish, lots of coral, and even a shark while snorkeling. Because I grew up on the coast of Florida near the Gulf of Mexico, I was very comfortable swimming and experiencing the natural wonders of the ocean. So I could remember all the amazing sights of the reef, I rented an underwater point-and-shoot camera, which proved to be highly effective in capturing every moment.
Thankfully, I didn’t get eaten by a Great White or stung by a deadly Box jellyfish. People do survive Australia after all!
If you want to see the pictures I took on my excursion, take a look at the gallery above. I will write more posts about my life in Australia soon, so stay tuned.
