First Impressions

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!

    Hej, gumman! Vad otroligt skönt att resan gick bra! Det är starkt gjort att klara det alldeles ensam när man bara är 16år. Bra jobbat! Kul att det verkar stämma bra med familjen också. Nu ser vi fram emot att få ta del av din resa genom bloggen och önskar dig fantastiska upplevelser och erfarenheter. Puss o kram
