    “On the spot: Kayla Ihrig, Photography senior”

    Do you have any rockin’ summer plans to look forward to?

    Yes, I have big plans for this summer. I’m going to go to Key West, Fla. for my 21st birthday at the end of May. Then, after a month of working in Seattle, (Wash.) I am going to fly to Australia to take a three week photography course. Then, I am going to spend another two weeks traveling with my friend up the west coast of Australia. We are basically renting this thing called a Chubby Van and living out of that for two weeks while we site see.

    Woah! That sounds like it will be quite an epic summer. And you can’t go wrong with something called a Chubby Van.

    (Laughs) Yeah.

    So, what is a must-see for when you go to Australia? The Great Barrier Reef? The Sydney Opera House?

    We don’t have any big plans, but we definitely want to go snorkeling and surfing. Sydney and the Opera House are definitely up there, though. Besides that, we just want it to be an adventure and do as many Australian things as possible.

    Well I’m envious. But I have to ask, are you going to be brave and have a vegemite sandwich?

    A what?

    Vegemite? C’mon, it’s an Aussie tradition.

    Really? Oh, I’ve never even heard of it. I should probably look into that.

    (Laughs) I’ve heard it’s an acquired taste, but definitely keep your eyes out.
