I have never traveled outside of the country (except to Canada of course), and I am very excited but also extremely nervous. How much can I pack? What am I going to do on an 8 hour long flight? Will my host family like me? Will the students understand me? I know the moment I get off the plane in Germany all of my nerves will fade away. There are so many things I am looking forward to doing and learning once I arrive in Germany, and I cannot wait to use this blog to document all of the incredible opportunities that this program has to offer and all of the experiences that I will have.
