“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot nothing is going to get better it’s not”- Dr Seuss

Birthe appreciates a good quote more than Australia’s vegemite (not the first time an exchange student has not been a fan of vegemite). For Birthe, travelling the 20 hour and 19 minute flight to Australia seemed like a better idea than staying and studying near her home in Ulsteinvik. Australia seemed like a good choice, with “England too cold, not enough support from the American government, Africa was too much of a culture shock and New Zealand (let’s just say I’m not interested- no offense).”
