10 Best Things About The U.S.

Hi there!

As I promised, from now on I try to keep you updated as best as I can, which means writing my blog more frequently. Next, we are going to do a little time travelling and go back to last fall in the U.S. This will be my last post about my exchange semester, so I wanted to list ten most important things I’m definitely going to miss the most. There will be plenty of pictures and amazing memories hidden in this post.

When I was picking the photos I started to miss my NAU (Northern Arizona University) friends even more. Everytime I look at our group pictures I can feel a burn in my heart. There’s a piece of my heart missing. Luckily I know where to find it! Thus, I decided I really need to book a trip to Central Europe asap! Be aware my dear mates there 😉

Anyways, here comes my top 10 list of the U.S., enjoy! Things I will miss the most are…

1. Amazing cities to travel to

So, as I mentioned earlier this will be my last post about the exchange in the U.S. Next, I’m going to have some new adventures and challenges coming up in my life and I promise to keep you updated. I’m that kind of person, who always needs something to look forward to. We’ll see what comes next 😉

Have a lovely beginning of the Spring!
