Almost ready to go!

I have been feeling unreal about this trip to Taiwan. There has been so much school work to do that I have had no time even to think about leaving Finland. I’m happy that we have a weeks holiday! That usually means more time to prepare for exams etc.. Now I had to get a grip and do something useful about upcoming trip too.

So today I took some painkillers (I’m recovering from a wisdom tooth suddenly disappearing from my mouth with some help of a doctor) and headed to town. I have had permanent travel insuranse that covers trips up to 45 days, but it is not enough now. To increase my insured days to almost 4 months I have to pay 160 e. This is sad day for my wallet, but I think my mom will be happy now.  I also did some other things my mom would be proud. This includes making notification of traveling to Finland’s Ministery of Foreing Affairs. Now I can rest asured that if there is an earthquake and my house falls, somebody comes to find me. Maybe.

Adding to these brave things I went to shopping. Disapointingly I didn’t find what I was looking for. I was trying to find a nice adapter, one that you can use everywhere you go. Gigantti only had different kinds of adapters. Well, maybe I will find it somewhere else. Still, my bravery didn’t fail me! I continued my adventure on the wonderful world of internet. I know I have said this before, but thank god we have so many helpfull staff at school to push us through all the paperwork and things related to that. We have this list of things you should do before the trip and when I checked it today I had done it all! What a relief!
