Christen and I in his car.
I’ve officially been in the United States, specifically Ohio, for 19 days now! I can’t believe it’s almost 3 weeks! I go back home in 2 and a half weeks, and there’s still so much that I want to do and see. I’m splitting my photo diary into about 3 different blog posts because there’s so much to share, so here’s part one, which compiles some of the snaps I took from the first 2 weeks. I don’t want to write too much text as it’s quite picture heavy, so I will just put a few little captions underneath each pic.
So far though, after arriving here from Croatia, I’m having a wonderful time and experiencing so much! I’ve already been to Walmart, Kroger, Meijer, Bob Evans, Fizoli’s, Chipotle, Circle K, Old Navy, American Eagle, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Kohl’s, Texas Roadhouse and so much more! The scenery is amazing here too! The sky is stunning in the evenings, everything is so big and open spaced, the cars are on the wrong side of the road… Ha ha.
I love the USA and everyone is so friendly! As you know from my previous post though, I’m staying here with Christen, and meeting him when I arrived into Columbus, Ohio airport was so surreal. I met a lovely lady on the second flight from Newark to Columbus, and she took our photo as I arrived. When I was in Newark airport in New Jersey, I got to see the New York skyline out of the window, and that was pretty incredible! I can’t wait to share more in my next posts! If you have any questions for me, please let me know in the comments below. Lorna xx.
