This is it folks! I leave for Germany in 4 days and knock on wood, but I think I'm ready. I picked up my Euros this morning which was the second to last thing on my checklist. If you bank with American Savings, they have a really convenient way to simply order foreign currency online and pick it up in any branch. You don't have to bring in cash to exchange, they just take it out of your bank account.
There is one final thing on my check list, and that is to scan and make copies of all of my important documents. Here's what I'll be copying...
I'll be making copies to leave at home with my parents as well as a digital copy to leave on a USB with them. I'll also be bringing copies with me in my carry on, since I'll need a lot of this stuff when I matriculate anyways. After this, I just need to pack and I'll be ready to go! Next time I check in, I'll be in Germany. Bis bald!
