The year started rather badly on my part; I was unlucky enough to be hospitalized on the 1st of January because of an extremely painful case of kidney stones. Nothing serious, just inconvienient and irratating, anyways now that it’s out of the way I can keep packing and making arrengements for the exchange period…
I finally got the flights (it’s way cheaper to book them two-way instead of just one-way) so I’m leaving on the 19th of January and possibly returning on the 31st of May. Even as I got my flights on the cheap they still didn’t come for free, I had to dish out a rather hefty sum of 760 euros on them. Everything should now be in place for my departure, I have to switch flights at Paris, CDG which is notoriously hard to navigate but let’s keep our fingers crossed now shall we?
I have to thank the people at SUNY for being extremely nice and fast to respond to any of my problems, they even arrenged a pick-up for me at Albany int. to take me straight to the campus free of charge, that’s pretty cool! I still have no idea who my room-mate will be or in which residence hall I will be staying but hey, I quess it only adds to the excitement.
