Bringing the learning home (Australian Learning & Teaching Council)


I recently spent five glorious days in Mykonos, the ‘party island’ of Greece.

It was in a way a trip to say farewell to Greece, as due to visa issues I am going home end of this week.

I went with my two best friends Julie and Bella and simply spent the time swimming and picnicing on the beach, drinking frappes, playing the Greek version of backgamon and eating fine food in tavernas.

Mykonos in Greek means “windy” and it is one of the windest islands in Greece.

It is also one of the most beautiful with crystal clear turqouise waters, rocky and dramatic coastlines and the typical white washed square houses accented with blue trim.

To anyone else who is facing the prospect of returning home to a cold Australian winter….well as cold as it gets.

Here are some pictures to maybe make you feel a little less sad šŸ™‚

    Love the photos. Greece looks utterly amazing. Are you home in Australia now? If so – I would appreciate a blog about “transitioning home” — how was it? Strange? Relatively easy? Or are you eager to travel again???

    Hi Morgan –

    Sorry – I didn’t realise you had written a piece when you came home on our ozstudentsabroad blog. For some daft reason I didn’t make the connection.

    I also read your morganhannah blog — quite daunting isn’t it, being in your final semester and about to enter the real world as a fully “tertiary educated” adult. HECS debt and all. Love your positive approach to life – it is infectious.

    If ever you get a chance to write something about post-studyabroad reflections — please feel free to write.

    Hope the job prospects in WA are looking bright.

      Hi y’all

      I think we are going to do an interview, Morgan – yes? Will be great to get your thoughts down on tape!
