Dunedin!

My favorite place so far :o)

sunny 9 °C

So in Dunedin is a Uni called The University of Otago. They have a masters program for design that I looked into right before I came. I set up an appointment through email to see if I could meet with the program director, and he said yes! Because it was such short notice, I only got to spend a day in Dunedin, but I loved every second of it. The people were nice, good cafes, old time feeling, and an inviting campus. On the way to Dunedin, there was some beautiful scenery:

I took some pictures of the campus to show everyone back home what I might be looking at for the next 15 months if I get accepted. Please let me state that these pictures do not do this campus justice.

Possibly my new future masters design building/second home haha. Good thing there is a coffee shop next door, literally!

This is the river that runs through the campus, and also right behind both design buildings.

Here you are looking at just a major bridge, but I found the stones to be lovely.

The stones continue through the entire town too! I didn't get a picture of The Octagon (what was I thinking?!), which is the central part of town, but I did mangage to snap a picture of this castle type building. Never got close enough to find out what it was, but I'm sure I will some day!
