Getting Ready

A journal entry from: Rouen Exchange

Planning for this trip was extensive to say the least.  It all began when applying for Universities.  I would first check the residences and next the locations on which I could go on exchange with.  Finally in fall of year two I was able to apply for exchange and spend numerous hours in the international office picking the perfect destination for me.  I knew that France was a high priority for me so I could improve my Fench.  I decided on Rouen as Paris would be too expensive yet it is only a little over an hour train ride from Paris.  I was able to see everyone over the Christmas break to say goodbyes (eventhough it was stressful at time saying bye to everyone I was going to miss so much).  Packing took place a couple days before leaving and before I knew it I was at the airport.
