I´ve been in washington for 2 days now, and so far, everything seems great. Everyone are so friendly and excited to meet me, so I could not be happier!
It took over 30 hours of traveling to get here, so I was pretty exhausted when I arrived. My first flight departed from Arlanda (stockholm, sweden) and went to Chicago. The airport in Chicago was CRAZY! It was so huge and I was lost at first. I had to get on a train to get to the terminal but after that everything went well. I was the only exchange student that was traveling to the us, so I had to do everything on my own. That was scary at first but after a while i realized that it wasn’t that bad. From Chicago I went to Seattle. I had a 5 hours layover in Seattle and since I had been awake for 24 hours at that time, I had a hard time staying awake. I did have great company though (someone I met at the airport), so the time just flew by. Then I got on a plane to Wenatchee, my town. My host family waited at the airport for me with flowers. They are all so nice! I could not have asked for a better host family! When we got to the house my host sister Summer gave me a house tour and then I went straight to bed.
The next morning we drove to down town Wenatchee and showed me around town. We also did some shopping 🙂
Today me and Summer watched tv series all morning, then when my host parents came home from work we went in to town to run a few errands.
So far, I’m very excited about everything and so happy to finally be here. But I have to admit, I feel like a total outsider but hopefully I will feel more comfortable soon!
