Countdown to Canada

One more week, 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes or 604,800 seconds, to go until I will board the plane from Frankfurt to Kelowna; 6 months in another country, 6 months on another continent. When I look back at the past three months, I cannot help but wonder where all the time has gone. I still remember talking to Global Ambassadors and representatives at the Study Abroad fair, going from stall to stall to learn more about different destinations and universities while listening to the stories of returning students. It feels like yesterday when I handed in my application and waited for the outcome. And now here I am, one more week to go until I will be on my way to Canada.

One week, about 5000 words of alternative assessment and two empty suitcases yet to be filled is all that is keeping me from my study abroad destination right now and I am already counting the days.

One more day to go!

I hope you all had a great start into the new year. I can’t believe I’m leaving tomorrow already. Today is packing day. My two suitcases are almost full by now, but I am still thinking I’ve forgotten something. I realised that I could have ordered bedding, towels and maybe a SIM card in advance instead of taking it with me or buying it on arrival, so if you’re going abroad and living on campus, check if there’s anything you can order beforehand. I need to finish packing now, but I will keep you updated!
