Hey y’all! Are you ready for the most cliche study-abroad post you’ve ever read in your life? I know I am. Seriously though, I am flying home on Monday. I don’t have the words to describe all that I am feeling right now, maybe I will try to put it all down in another post though. I want to keep this one light-hearted, and so I decided to do a list with a bunch of statistics from my year. These are all estimates, but I tried to make them as accurate as possible! I hope you enjoy 🙂
