It was the first time I was going out of my country. I was very excited about going to another country and I was waiting for that moment for all my life. The only sad thing about the trip was it was the first time that I would be away from my family for such a long time. It was the trip of experiences and the trip of the firsts. I was hoping that it would be a good and easy trip but there was a thing that I had forgotten; Life is full of surprises!!.The plane took off from Adana at 9 o'clock p.m. I kissed all the members of my family and saw them cry. That was a moment that I had never experienced before. I felt bad, but even in that moment, going to Canada to study was like 'no big deal' for me. I got on the plane with a friend of mine and the plane took off. The trip had begun. That was the first time I was getting on the plane.One hour later we were at Istanbul Yesilkoy Airport. We had our next 6 o'clock in the morning, so we were planning to stay in the guest rooms of the airport. Usually the guest rooms are for the airport staff but because my uncle works for the airport, he had arranged us a guest room, or we thought so! When we got to the office of the man who had the lists for the rented guest rooms, there was the first surprise waiting for us. No guest rooms were arranged for us. We checked all the lists of the guest rooms but no, we were not on any list. We had to spend the night sleeping on the airport chairs. The police officer around there and the airport officer were very friendly. We sat down and chatted for a while. After that we slept and we woke up at 4.30 a.m. We picked up all our baggage and headed for International part of the airport, which another surprise was waiting for us.Our tickets were first for Istanbul-Frankfurt plane. Because of there was not any room in that plane and the school was getting started we changed our tickets from Istanbul-Frankfurt to Istanbul-Munich, Munich- Frankfurt. When we got to the office of Lufthansa, the officer asked us if we had the visa for Germany. She told us to have it other than that we couldn't take the Munich-Frankfurt plane and we would have to stay in Germany. We told her that our agent had arranged all the tickets for us and she said something like, "how do you find agents that bad?". She was totally right though, I agreed with her. She then told us that she could write our names to the wait list for the Istanbul-Frankfurt plane, but she said she couldn't make sure we would go with it. We had no other chance so we thanked her and began to wait for the plane. There came the third surprise.There was only one room and one of us had to choose to go. I let him go because he could have more hard time than I would have alone in the airport. I let him go and he was gone. I was alone. I could have gone earlier to Canada but because I had not wanted to go alone, I had waited for him.His home in Canada was arranged later than mine and I had postponed my ticket because of that. It was my...
