Back from Australia

I’m back from my trip to Australia and greeted with the Deepavali holiday. It was a great trip – visiting Sydney and Melbourne, my cousin’s wedding and checking out 6 universities. I met a lot of relatives I didn’t know before, didn’t know when I met them, still don’t know, and don’t plan to know. I close to perfected my mobile experience when limited to my phone and my cousin’s wifi, I learned what you could only learn about universities if you visit them, and of course the wedding dinner was (really) delicious.

I also got a Google Wave account to play with (from Marvin, whose shared interests are in the downfall of TMNet, our ISP – or an optimistic person would say the upgrading of TMNet), and will update you on my impressions later (no, I don’t have the send-invite ability yet, see the explanation, but if you do send me a kind request when I do I’ll send you an invite).

This is somewhat of a filler post as I’m quite tired and also have a lot of catching-up work to do. thinkMoult posts will resume its usual 2-day schedule. Of course WIPUP will continue development once I’ve catched up a sufficient amount. But to keep this post friendly here’s a paranoramic shot I shotted with my phone camera (hence the tiny size).

If you look closely you can spot Sydney Opera House.

  1. Well, as I sort of ran out of time I just slapped on a crappy ending – also didn’t have much time to practice obviously. The response seemed good and I was quite happy given the circumstances, but of course, it really needed more practice.

  2. awesome =)

    I was a bit dissapointed about the size of the opera house when I visited sydney – so famous yet not so ├╝ber-super-special. but I really like the overall feel of sydney – bondi beach, meee like ^^

    I wanna hear more about the universities you visited!

    greetings from your swedish friend. take care now.

  3. Thanks Erik and Marvin!

    Sydney’s weather seems very good for me (and my hands too!). Melbourne’s seems quite undecided, it would rain and shine like a kid playing with a light switch – and not proper fully fledged rain too, more like an undecided shot from a man in a darkened urinal.

    Sorry for the imagery.

    I visited 6 universities in total – University of Sydney, UNSW, UTS, University of Melbourne, RMIT and Monash. 3 got eliminated, 2 got backup, and 1 obviously got first choice please please please please please.

    I will maintain an air of mysteriousness.
