T Minus 4...3...2...1...

Hello all!

I have created this blog in order to have a means of communication while I'm abroad. For those of you who do not know, I will be studying abroad in Vienna, Austria and I will be spending the month before that backpacking through Europe with Erin, Andrew, Stephen, Jan, Emily, and Ally. We will be visiting Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Venice, Prague, Berlin, and Amsterdam. Whew! We will be very tired, dirty, and hungry the whole time, but it should be the adventure of a lifetime!

We'll be leaving this Tuesday and starting the trip in Paris. The next four days will be full of preparations, packing (Haven't started yet. Eeeks!), goodbyes, and last minutes socializing. I've already eaten Outback for the last time for 5 months, I'm eating Mexican today, and I need to hit up Goodcents before I leave.

Please feel free to leave comments, tips, thoughts on posts or e-mail me at owens.bethany@gmail.com. I will check/post as often as I can, depending on whether I have internet access in the hostel I'm at.
