1)whales!

Already sitting in the plane we soon realized even though it’s getting later and later outside it’s getting brighter and brighter…

My college life in L.A.

Yes.. of course I had imagined college life abroad in the USA great and fun. I was excited and full of expectations but I would have never even dreamed of what it really was like! Things turned out to be far beyond my expectations. Sure there were good days and not so good days but I would never wanna treat this experience for anything in the world.   On my first day I met my Japanese friend who was my best friend the whole time we started this year together and finished it together as well. We shared everyhing and it was the most amazing thing ever.  And still we are friends and seeing each other now and then. Besides here I made many friends from many different countries and still have contact to some of them. Love meeting them on my travels.   Continue reading

My first LAX experience

SL374200

 

I’ve had never been away from home for so long! To be honest I was a little scared when I was sitting in the plane. The flight was schedule for 11 hours but it seemed to go so fast! When only 3 hours were left I knew it’s getting real now! And suddenly I wished that I would have a few more hours left. When we were flying over Canada and the Grand Canyon I knew I hand’t much more time on the plane.

Of course it’s always better to stay longer at a place than only 2 or 3 days, but if you just don’t have  the time here’s a great tip when only spending a weekend in Rome.

 

What I usually do is gather as much information as possible from the place going – Rome in this case – write down a list of which things you wanna see and visit.  And plan your trip in advance.

You will recognize how much you can do by yourself and you’ll see that you are capable of way more than you thought.

My best Hotel experience

To be honest.. as a traveller you are usually on a low budget and cannot really afford expensive, fancy hotels (well at least in my case) 😀

But during my year abroad in the US I was lucky enough to get the chance to stay at a really fun place.

 

Luxor Hotel Las Vegas:

I really can recomment this hotel!

 

It is not only a hotel but also a casino!
But that’s not all! It also offers Restaurants, shopping stores, night clubs and magic shows!

 

The whole hotel is Egypt themed. The building is Pyramide shaped supplied with a laser and a pharao sculpture in front.

Inside there’s lots of Egyptian accessoirs and pictures.
