As I am sitting in the airport gate, waiting for my flight to arrive, I finally feel like I can breathe and relax! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. Between finals, finding a new place to live, and planning this trip to Toulouse, I feel like I’ve been going nuts!

Last night was filled with my usual pre-travel anxiety. Did I pack too much? Equally as bad, did I pack too little? Am I forgetting something important? Do I really need three pairs of shoes? Where is my passport?!

But I’m ready! I can’t wait to learn about food production in France, and to explore the beautiful city of Toulouse.

To my fellow travelers, good luck and Bon voyage!
