And so it begins…

Yes, I know it’s three months until I go to France, but I decided to get this up and running in advance.

For those who don’t know already, or do but just feel like hearing it again, I will be spending the next six months (January 16-June 22) studying at the Université François Rabelais de Tours in Tours, France. Website here:

After the semester ends, I plan to backpack through Europe for the rest of the summer. Essentially, I’ll make a loop from Paris to Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, Vienna, Munich, Zurich (Winterthur!), Florence, Rome, Barcelona, Marseille, back to Paris, London, and Dublin. Make sense?

I don’t know any other details yet, like living arrangements or my class schedule, but I know that it’s happening. That’s good enough for me.
