Well today, I embark on my new journey as a college student. At 6:45 tonight, I will be on my way to London, England. Here, I will spend a couple of days before heading to my actual study abroad destination: Salzburg, Austria! Now I have no knowledge of the German language, which may pose an issue but I view the whole experience as a learning opportunity.
I have heard that the preparation process is often stressful for many students. Thankfully, however, I stayed on top of all the paperwork and deadlines for the program so the stress was minimal. The last thing I needed was for something to go wrong.
Like I said before, I do not have many expectations for this trip but I am excited to live in Europe for three months. I hope that by the end of this journey, I will have gained a new perspective on the world and the people who inhabit it.
Hopefully by my next post, I will have photos to share and some stories to tell. But for now, I’m headed to JFK International Airport to catch my flight. Stay tuned for more!
