I have finally finished packing and am ready to depart for England tomorrow! I am so excited and a little nervous at the same time. I have never been to Europe or on a trip for this long of a time period. I keep worrying that I have forgotten to pack something I will need. As I am typing this, I have realized I in fact did not pack a toothbrush! Ironic right?
I have always wanted to see the Eiffel Tower in person, so I am especially looking forward to the day we travel to Paris! I also am excited to travel to London and ride in the London Eye and be able to see the whole city. After watching the Olympics this past year, I would love to see some Olympic venues and am crossing my fingers we will! I also look forward to going to Herrods, because I love to shop, and I heard it is a huge shopping mall!
From this experience, I hope to gain a better understanding of the culture in England. I believe this trip is going to be one of my best memories/experiences from Otterbein University. I have a few friends that went on this same trip last year, and I have heard nothing but positive feedback and how much they loved England. I am also excited to interact with and get to know my classmates. Since I am not a nursing major, I have not taken classes with the majority of students going on the trip.
Well I better get off and pack my toothbrush before I forget and rest up for our long day of travel tomorrow. See you all at the airport tomorrow morning!
