After finishing High School I’ve applied to an international school in the United States and got accepted. So I had to start the planning. First of all no matter what age you need to apply for a student visa if you want to study in the USA – which includes lots of waiting surveys and other paperwork to do. After finally receiving my new passport, student visa and filling in all the documents required I could finally focus on what is really important!
What to bring when leaving for a whole year? One or two suitcases? What do I really need? Check out here.
Landing at LAX – Los Angeles airport my first impression of the country was a really good one! It’s warm, it’s sunny and there’s so much to discover. After arriving in my accommodation and unpacking I decided to discover the area of Whittier.
Whittier is a friendly, small town in southern California, not too far away from Los Angeles Downtown. If you want to stay in southern California but don’t wanna stay in a big city with lot’s of traffic and cars Whittier would be a great choice. It’s a quiet and comparatively cheap place not far from all the sights & attractions offered in the area such as Hollywood, beautiful beaches like Laguna Beach, Malibu Beach or Santa Monica Beach. Travelling by car will be more convenient as the public transportation system is quite confusing around L.A. and it will take some time to get to your destination. A good place for renting a car could be enterprise as their prices are fair, the cars are in good condition and it’s close to many accommodations so you can walk there. Once the care is hired nothing can stop you from travelling CA.
