Xan and I have finally made our decision. It took a lot of thinking and prayer. Our conclusion was the Cornell University in Ithaca, New York would be the best place for us. It is warmer than Iceland except for January and February when it gets significantly colder than Iceland. It snows A LOT. But, its a lot cheaper than either Iceland or California and has the best program for Xan’s specific studies. 🙂 Here’s a picture I found of the campus.
I’m looking into apartments and such now. It’s kind of fun but also very time consuming. It would be really nice if I could go there myself and look at all the places. But, the internet makes things a lot easier and most places will send pictures to view. If anyone out there has advice or recommendations on Ithaca NY living, send me a line! 🙂
