Now it’s time. Now the adventure can begin. My flight from Hamburg over Frankfurt to Atlanta went very well without any complications. It was a quite enjoyable journey and I had a nice seat mate. Unfortunately there was a thunderstorm over Atlanta airport right after we landed so we had to wait about an hour until our luggage could be taken out of the airplane. But at least it arrived.🤷🏻♀️
The only thing left now is to hope that I packed the right clothes😅. Packing did actually go easier than I expected. I was able to bring more than I had on my packing list and with 22,8kg I stayed under the weight limit of 23kg. In addition to my suitcase I carried one bag and a small backpack as hand luggage with me.
After Amanda (my Host Sister) and Carmen (my Host Mother) picked me up I met the rest of the family when we arrived in my new home. Especially the 7 dogs! They were coming at us as soon as we entered the lot haha. Then I unpacked my suitcase and fell into my big bed immediately.
Yesterday (Tuesday, August 1) we went to my High School and I picked my classes for the coming school year. In the evening Carmen and I cooked dinner. Well... she cooked😅 the spaghetti and I made a salad.
It’s been raining all the time since I arrived. But I think it will stop about next week. At least it’s nicely warm outside.
Today we’ll go to the airport again and pick up my Spanish guest sister Sara.
Now I’m looking forward to an exciting year!
I’ll write to you soon!
