Arrival at Abbey College, University of Otago
I was greeted at Dunedin Airport by a very lovely fellow holding up a board with my name on it. Along with four other people, I was shuttled into the city center, about a half hour journey. Along the way he pointed out some key places on the route. When he pulled up to Abbey College aka my apartment building/dorm, he helped me unload my suitcases. I was then welcomed by the Head of the College, who was awaiting my arrival. He showed me to my room which is on the first floor. Right now I have a studio with an ensuite bathroom and a little porch. He then gave me an overview of how dinning works, emergency protocol, and the cleaning schedule. We then took a tour of the building. There are quite a few study/sitting areas, a mail room, dinning room, and even a pool/sauna/hot tub! It used to be an old hotel, so it definitely has that feeling to it. Occasionally showing its age, my room is a good size with blue carpet, yellow walls, and a dial TV tuner next to my bed! Due to the frequent comings and goings of students, I may have to switch to an apartment style room, sharing a bathroom, with someone else in a few weeks but fingers crossed things will work out! After all of this, I got some much deserved rest (and had a shower!)
Love this! xo
