I’m back in America!! It was a very long travel day though. We woke up at 5am Saturday morning (10pm Friday night Texas time) because neither one of us had started packing yet. Alice’s husband picked us up to take us to the airport at 7:30am. It was so sad to leave our little house! It really felt like home! When we were picked up from the airport a month ago it was dark, so we did not get to see much on the drive. This time, we got to enjoy the snow covered hills and beautiful forest areas! It was another sunny day too!
We flew from Billund, Denmark to Amsterdam. This flight was a little over an hour, almost enough time to make it through a whole movie. Then we had an hour and a half layover in Amsterdam. This airport is massive so we had to walk quite a ways to our new gate. Our next flight was from Amsterdam to Atlanta and took a little under 10 hours. I took a nap for about an hour and watched 4 more movies. Of course the short time I was asleep was when they passed out the main meal, so I missed that. Luckily I was awake when they came around handing out ice cream! We had a two hour layover in Atlanta, which was good because we had to go through customs and recheck our luggage. The last flight was from Atlanta to Dallas and was a little under 2 hours. I watched the 6th movie of the day. We landed around 8:30pm Saturday night Texas time (3:30am Sunday morning Denmark time). As much as I wish I was still in Denmark, it felt so good to be back in Texas.
One of my roommates picked me up from the airport and we went and got dinner. I was exhausted when we got home (I had been up for almost 24 hours at this point), but I stayed up talking with the roommates for a while! I went to bed around 10:30pm and woke up at 8am. Our flights seemed to work out really well because we didn’t experience jet lag when we got to Denmark and I don’t think I’m going to experience it here either!
In some ways it feels like forever since I have been in Fort Worth, but in other ways it feels like I never left. I’m happy to be home, but there will always be a small part of me that longs to be back in Denmark! I am so thankful for the experiences and memories and cannot wait to tell people more about my trip!
I originally created this blog thinking my TCU professors and my parents would be the only ones reading it, so I have been blown away at how many people have told me they have been following along! I am so excited so many people have been interested in how my trip was going and hope you all enjoyed my posts!
Tak og farvel (thank you and goodbye)!!
