It's 10am on Tuesday, meaning I leave for the airport in a few hours! Of course it's snowing, but hopefully that won't mess up my flight at all. I managed to squeeze everything into a suitcase, duffel bag, backpack, and messenger bag. Everything is basically full, but at least nothing is super heavy. I leave around 6pm tonight. I wasn't able to use the online check-in for my flight, so I'll have to wait for the desks instead...hope everything goes smoothly that time. A few of my friends are on the same flight as me, and a bunch of other people from the IES program are too! Once we get to Paris, we have a few hours and then will be taking a train out to Nantes, my city. When I get there, I have one night before we leave for our orientation in Tours, so I don't know if I'll be online at all to update this for the next week or so. I'll be living with a retired English professor who occasionally has her grandkids over, and another 20yr old student lives there as well. I'm right in the centre ville and I'm literally around the corner from the IES Center for classes, so that's great! I'm also pretty close to the river. If anyone wants to send mail, you can use this address:
c/o IES Abroad Nantes
7, rue des Cadeniers
Once I get settled in I'll put up some pictures! I'm not sure how often I'll update this, but I'll do my best!
