Kristin completed her Masters degree at the University of Kansas in December of 2002. She immediately started looking at schools to work on her PhD. She finally narrowed it down to two schools: the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia and the University of New Hampshire in Durham, New Hampshire.
Of course, we had to check out both schools personally, which meant arranging trips to each. So in March of 2003 we traveled to Australia to visit the University of Sydney. It was an exciting trip for both of us, as we had never been to Australia before. It was a wonderful week, and we truly enjoyed ourselves.
In the end, Kristin chose the University of New Hampshire to complete her PhD. But we’ll not forget our trip to Australia, and definitely want to go back some day. The links below take you to the pictures and account of our trip.
