Hi! My name is Marisa Etzell and I’m a Junior at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington. I am a proud Pacific Northwesterner and can be found eating granola on a regular basis. Nature is my happy place, and I especially love exploring the beautiful landscapes of foreign countries. I’m super pumped to share my Australian adventures with you! I hope to play a didgeridoo, snorkel, hike in the outback, and learn to surf. Oh, and of course, get good grades because I’m studying abroad (keyword: studying). My goal is to visit all 7 continents before I graduate. Australia will be number 4, so I’ll be over half way there!
