Dreams Becoming Reality

Hi Everyone! My name is Sean Carroll, I am an Economics and French double-major from Floral Park, New York and I’m so glad you have stumbled across my study abroad blog. With this blog, I plan to document all of my ups and downs, adventures and misadventures, as well as possibly teach you some French during my first ever trip out of the country. I have no idea what to expect of Europe, but I have been told by everyone I ask that I will love it, so I guess you could say I’m pretty excited. I am currently writing this blog post the day I leave to meet up with eleven other Holy Cross students in Tours, France. For the past week I have been slowly packing my entire life away into two suitcases, saying goodbye to all of my friends, and savoring every last home-cooked meal and iced coffee I can consume. I have been dreaming about traveling to Europe and visiting places that my grandparents would describe to me for as long as I can remember and I really cannot believe that I will be sitting on a flight in less than seven hours on my way to make those dreams a reality. At this moment my head’s in the clouds and life does not seem real, I’ll let you know when reality pulls me back down. Wish me luck!
À bientôt!  (see you soon)
