So I thought a nice first post on my new blog would be a post about my trip to Melrose, USA.
Every second year my high school does an exchange with Melrose High School in Melrose, Massachusetts. I was lucky enough to get picked as one of the 23 Danish students to attend this year. I’m so grateful that I got picked! It has been the most amazing trip one could ever imagine. I had the best exchange partner I could ever get; Laura. She is so nice and funny. And so is her family – the kindest family in the world. What also made the trip amazing was all the new things I learned about American culture. I thought Denmark and USA were quite similar, but it turns out they aren’t. Though we do have a lot of similarities. The biggest difference? The school system. Haha – oh, we’ve had a lot of funny conversations about that.
Very well – I’m not gonna bore you all with every single detail, so I’ll just go straight to the pictures from the trip. (I’ve just picked out a couple – I have 400 on my computer, and if I hadn’t deleted any, I would have had like 2000). I hope you enjoy!
On our way. Ice Land.
