Of transition & technology

And I am finally here. At Strasbourg. In person.

Ideally I should have been jumping with excitement looking at the pretty houses and trams and the city in general but Google spoiled it all.

I for one, will not blame technology but as soon as I got the address of my 2 schools and the place where I’d be staying, immediately got on to Google maps and had a great 360° view of these places, the roads they led to, the supermarket and even the pizzeria nearby! My famille d’accueil (host family) too sent me photos of their apartment and my room.

So when I reached here, I just knew the way it was going to be, the way it would look like. It was annoying in a sense that I wanted to be excited, to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ at the prettiness, the cleanliness and the European charm, but well, lets just say that I possibly looked like someone who had been staying there for well over a year!

However, the upside is that I found the place easily because of one landmark I had seen on Google and recognised it just in time to get off the tram! (Please note that i lugged 23+12 kilos from the airport to the train and then on to the tramway and finally to my apartment).

And so here I am, in my cozy little room with a wonderful view and a host family that’s doing their best to make me feel at home. More about them later!
