Wow what an amazing year. Words aren't enough to describe how I'm feeling at the moment. I'm sitting in the airport waiting for my last flight back to Brisbane and I know that I cant leave without acknowledging all the wonderful family and friends I have discovered during my year abroad! You have all definitely made my year what it is, without your support, love and willingness to adopt this Aussie I would never have been able to have the experiences and year that I had. Thank you each and everyone of you for being family to me. I could never forget all that you did for me. I will cherish the memories, laughs and jokes close to my heart. Thank you to my incredible families for always being there for me during the year, the Sunrise rotary club for being so cheerful and unique! Anyone is lucky to go to a meeting with you guys, to my Canadian girls Cath and Syd I love you both so much. We will see each other again soon thank you for everything, To my Brazilians I love each of you, enjoy the rest of your exchange it flies by. Thank you to everyone that came to say good bye to me; it meant the world to me! my last hours in Canada were golden and I wouldn't change it! I will be back in Canada before you know it. If you're ever in Australia, you will have always have a home.
