Today at work I logged into my email and got the official confirmation message that this May, I and a number of other students from the Ohio State University will be studying abroad this May in Europe! I’ve known for actually a couple weeks that I’d been accepted onto the trip, but I was waiting for an official email before I crowed about it on every single social media platform I could find.

The trip specifically visits England, France, and Germany over a 3-week period, and we’ll be visiting some of the more important sites of World War II Europe, including London, Normandy, Paris, and Berlin (among other places). I’m super-excited about it and I can’t wait to go. Specifically, well be there from May 7-29, so if you happen to be there in Europe during those times and want to meet up, let me know (just make sure I know who you are first and that we’re friendly enough to meet up. Also, if you have a copy of my book and you want me to sign it, it can’t hurt your chances of meeting me).

I haven’t gotten a lot of information on the trip yet, as the trip’s in May and they just sent out the acceptance emails. I do know that the cost is just under four grand and that the History Department, who runs the trip, guarantees that each participant gets a bit of financial aid, that I’ll be attending an orientation session in the next couple months, and that most of my classes next semester will be devoted to preparing for this trip.

Anyways, I’m really excited to share this news with you. I’ll let you know more details as time goes on and I learn more, including if I get any big scholarships (God-willing!). Wish me luck. I’m really excited for what is to come.
