Saving up for ticket to Dunedin

My friend and I decided to visit Dunedin to see if we would like to pursue our undergraduate there. We had heard that Dunedin is a great city to not only study in but also to enjoy undergrad life. We both saved up for my ticket for the whole year. Initially, our parents were against the idea of us going to Dunedin and refused to give us money for the ticket. We decided to secretly save up for the ticket without telling them. When we finally had enough money for the ticket, we tried to persuade her parents. They finally agreed and we bought a ticket to Dunedin. We enjoyed the school life we witnessed in Dunedin and believe that we will come back to study in Dunedin.
