You'd think I'd never seen a bed before. Needless to say I was a bit sleepy after jet-setting around from the States, connecting in Amsterdam, and finally setting foot in France, but I think I've been a bit lost in a dreamy-dramatic state in the little time I've been here. My room is fantastic and I literally touched the sheets on my twin bed, put my hand on my heart, and sighed a little. I just can't believe I'm here and can't believe it's real. I never thought I'd ever get the opportunity to study abroad. In fact, I'm only a few classes away from getting my degree, but thanks to a bicycle-accident-wrist-breaking-surgery adventure, I was sidelined for over four months. That allowed me the opportunity to be here today. I am very nearly glad I went through all that just to be here.
These are just photos of my room area. I am sharing a sleeping room with three others, but I was lucky enough to get there first and snag the bed by the window. How could I resist that view? Around every corner there's some sort of nook, portal, or other form of old timey goodness. I can't believe this place is real. I can't wait to explore and see more and more!
