As soon as we were on the airplane, all we wanted was food of course! We impatiently waited for our airplane dinner as the plane. After we were full, we were already exhausted. Alison fell asleep while I watched the movie version of Jersey Boys. (We had an empty seat next to me, which made it a comfy ride). After the movie, I fell asleep and woke up just in time for “breakfast”. Yes, I quotes because although it was breakfast food, and after dinner, it was served at 11:30 EST. But there was food, so we ate it. We arrived in London and changed planes. I once again fell asleep on the airplane (possible before even taking off). I was awaken by breakfast, yet again. But I spent the rest of the flight looking out of the windows in awe! We were flying above the clouds and I look out of the window (of course without glasses or contacts) and see these dark spots, which I thought was just water.
While abroad I will be writing two blogs, one about my travels, adventures and new experiences. This is where I will talk about everything with living and being a student in Leuven, as well as any travel and trips that I go on throughout the semester. The second blog will be academically focused on the class I will be helping develop. This will keep track of my contributions and reactions to helping revolutionize engineering education and bring Olin’s teaching methods to Leuven, Belgium.
And the adventure begins!
