All About Austin

My name is Austin Bonebrake. I was born in Eugene, Oregon and have lived in Springfield, Oregon for my entire life. I originally graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in General Social Science. I spent roughly two years working as a caregiver after finishing college, before deciding it was time for a change.

I am currently a student at Lane Community College where I am pursuing a degree in MultiMedia design. While completing this program I am specifically aiming to develop skills in web development, video production, and photography. Upon finishing the MultiMedia design program I would love to find a job that I can work while traveling, or even requires me to travel. Being able to see new places and experiencing new cultures make travelling one of my favorite things to do.

I have been lucky enough to have had many great experiences across the world whether it was walking on the Great Wall of China, going inside pyramids in Giza, or getting lost in Stone Town on Zanzibar. My favorite place I have been to is Australia, which I have visited four times now. The weather is warm, the people are nice, and the beaches are amazing. I was in Australia for the majority of March before I returned home due to the Coronavirus pandemic, cutting short my trip that was supposed to continue on to Thailand for a few weeks. After sitting around doing nothing for several days I decided to enroll in classes at Lane Community College, which has led me to starting this blog.

    Nice to meet you, Austin. We have a lot in common! I also love to travel and take photos. 🙂 My favorite trip was backpacking in South America for two months. I can’t wait for my next trip. Where do you want to go next?

      Hi Stacy, I am so jealous that you’ve been to South America! That is definitely where I would like to go next, specifically to Chile and Peru. My goal is to make it to every continent, South America and Antarctica are the last two I have left so I’m hoping to hit them both in one trip. Any future travel plans for you?

        No travel plans for the near future. I wish! I want to hit the South Pacific next…
        I absolutely LOVE Peru. I almost didn’t come home! I stayed in Cusco quite a bit and the surrounding areas but didn’t make it too far north. Bring a camera for sure! Everything there is incredibly beautiful.

    Hi Austin, i am glad to know you have been to so many places I can not agree more that is the best way to expand knowledge besides reading. Traveliing makes me found out more and understand myself more through meeting people from different culture. I used to travel a lot for working and my own pleasure. Melbourne is my favourite city. I am also suprised that you visit Beijing where I have been living there for 17 years before I moved to Eugene 5 years ago.

      Hi Jimila, I went to Beijing in December of 2018, I was fascinated with how big of a city it was. It seemed like the buildings just went on forever. It was great to experience Chinese culture, which is so much different than American culture. Going from Beijing to Eugene is a such a big change. What do you think of Eugene?

      Hi Kristen, I am hoping to go to South America next since I have yet to be there! If you were to travel somewhere internationally where do you think you would go first?
