I finally got the hang of WordPress, I think. So now, I’ll share with you what’s going on in my mind. As of today, I have less than nine full days left in the US. That obviously hasn’t hit me yet because of the holidays and the prep for new year.
In the meantime, I have most of my clothes packed. I live in Berkeley but am visiting my parents in Los Angeles before departing, so I had to get my stuff ready beforehand. I am going shopping for a warm coat tomorrow. But the general advice I heard was, pack light.
I have all my documents in one binder. And just to be safe, I backed them up to Skydrive using my handy Nokia Lumia 900 phone.
I’ve been in contact with my host family in Bordeaux. And I have their information and heard through a current student that they are are great hosts.
What I still have to take care of:
1. decide whether to open a bank account with France
2. decide on a phone plan while abroad. I do know that the company is called Orange.
Anything I’m forgetting? Got any tips? I know I want to travel. Spain? Germany? Ideas? Do, share your ideas.
