So I planned to post my first blog post when the preparations for my trip had started so that one can follow every step of the experience. Since I’ll be travelling to Ghana I thought that I might as well blog in english so that my supervisor, interviewees, my fellow students and family abroad can follow my experiences. Also since my program is in english. Anyways, all the preparations have seriously started now and I’m very excited! I’ve booked my train ticket to Härnösand for the course that’s taking place there. Also these last 2 weeks I’ve taken all the necessary vaccines. (Which was scary by the way, cause I’m truly scared of needles!). I also figured I need to learn how to operate the dictaphone for my interviews, so I’m now trying to acquaint myself with that. And some days ago I finally booked my ticket! Took me about 2 weeks to decide on that so I’m happy and relieved that it’s done.
Well, for now I’m trying to organize and plan the studying part and I’ve found tons of useful literature. So now I’m planning and hoping that the most important parts that could be done in advance like introduction, previous research, theory, method etc. will be completely finished before departure.
Other than this there’s not much happening when it comes to the preparations. Meanwhile I have a paper to be handed in soon, so I’ll have to work on that. Will keep you posted, so stay tuned! 🙂
