Countdown to Berlin: 39 Days...

This weekend I had my orientation for my study abroad trip to Berlin. I'm so mad orientation was a whole month before the trip because I am beyond ready to get to Europe now! We are flying out on June 28, and we'll be returning to the States on August 1. For a whole month I get to study in an awesome city, travel in and around Germany, and immerse myself in a culture different from my own. German I and Art Appreciation are the two classes I'll be taking, so I'm hoping these 1000-levels won't be too stressful so I can really enjoy the trip. I also met three girls at orientation, and it seems like the four of us will be good friends and have loads of fun together.

The one thing I am most excited for is traveling. We'll be living in Berlin, and the first weekend we'll be getting a guided tour of the city and visit Potsdam and Sanssouci Palace. After the first weekend we have the weekends free to do whatever we want so long as we're in class on Monday. The girls and I are already planning to go to Amsterdam, Munich, and Salzburg, Austria, where "The Sound of Music" was filmed.

This trip is going to be so amazing. I cannot wait! I'll also be blogging while I'm gone to keep all of you up-to-date on my trip and to share my experiences with you as they happen. June 28, hurry up!!!

Stay golden,
Jessie
