I cannot believe that our big girl Camille is in Italy for a year as part of her year abroad (Erasmus). I miss her so much already! We booked a flight on Ryanair website on the 23rd of Sep and we had to be at Stansted for 7 a.m. At the time I was a bit concerned to drive all the way there in the morning. That night I went to bed at 8 p.m. and though it was hard to fall asleep so early I did it! The alarm went at 2 a.m and we managed to leave the house by 2:45..
When Camille arrived in Bologna, things did not go too smoothly. I booked her in a B and B. However its lady owner told her that she would have to share her room with her something that she never mentioned on the phone. This was not quite you would expect, after all I paid good money for it! Fortunately it did not happen! Camille stayed another night there and then I found her another hotel for her third night. After more nights in this hotel, she met up with another English student Olivia and is sharing with her. Now she has found a permanent room not far from the university. Tonight she's told me that she has three lectures in the morning and then she is moving in the flat. We've been skyping most evenings and I recommend it as it is so handy!
