Vie d'E en Toulouse travel blog


Hello Everyone!

And welcome back to mytripjournal! For those of you that followed my previous adventures, you are familiar with this format. For all you Wash U kids who sometimes forget I went somewhere until I start a story with "One time in Senegal" there are a whole bunch of stories that I think you can read on the other journal. But I stray from my point, introducing this journal!

So this journal is to chronicle my time in Toulouse, France. It will be pretty different from my last journal, as this time I will be a university student. At which university, you ask? Well, probably a couple of them. Toulouse has five universities, and I'm allowed to take classes in all of them, so we will see which ones end up working out for me.

I will be living with a family again, so at least I am used to that part. I will be living with Monsieur et Madame Gallet and their ten-year-old son, Vincent. The seem really nice, they have sent me LONG emails about themselves and asking lots of questions. At first I was worried they would see me as an au pair (they have had many before) but they have also had students and I think they are just really eager for me to get there.

For now I am four days away from my departure date, and it was time to get started on that pre-departure list. Right now it involves more hanging out with people that won't see me for months instead of real packing, but I thought I could get started on this bit at least as well. You can thank all of my friends going abroad that got theirs started before me that I feel any pressure to start it at all.

So yes, I suppose that is enough for now. I hope to find all the people that want to see this journal, and feel free to sign up for getting the emails when I update, or don't. Just store that link away and you will be able to see what I am up to. Hopefully I will keep this pretty up to date! Keep me posted on your lives, I love hearing from you! And comment all you like on the entries. (Although if there are spelling corrections I will call you out by name :P)

Call me in the next four days if you want to hear from me while I am still State-side!
