Reisverslag The end.
30 december 2016
It is over. I am at the airport waiting for my plane home to leave. Mixed feelings all the way. I am so excited to see everyone at home again, but on the other hand I am incredibly sad to leave this place that I have come to call home over the last couple of months. It was truly an amazing experience and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss it for the world! I just waved goodbye to my friends that I traveled with for the last two weeks, and said goodbye to Davis a while ago already. Now everything has really come to an end and I am on my way back home.
There were tears when I waved goodbye to my family at Schiphol four months ago, and tears again now I am waving goodbye to this beautiful place. I have made the most of it. Seen amazing places, made great new friends, that I hope to see again soon, and lived a whole new life for a while. I guess coming home will be weird but nice, seeing all the familiar faces and places again, after having been in a continuous whirlwind of new and impressive and different.
I’ll miss the small chats with the cashiers at Trader Joe’s, listening to country songs in the car, and three-hour long Frisbee practices, OUTSIDE :) I’ll miss nice temperatures until well into december, and the OCCASIONAL rain (emphasis on occasional, as in, NOT. DAILY.), I’ll miss cycling around campus and studying in the sun on the Quad. I’ll miss Nicky the great housemate, Virginia and Donna our sweet ‘temporary foster moms’, I’ll miss Cricket the dog, and I might even miss Hopper the cat. I’ll miss bagels with cream cheese and the nice reading room in Shields Library, I’ll miss being called Nora, I’ll miss excessive Christmas decorations, Pumpkin Spice everything and Thanksgiving turkey. I’ll even miss football games even though I didn’t really like them ;), and I’ll miss being a part of the Aggie Pack. I’ll miss California and everything and everyone who has been part of this experience. But not to worry, I WILL BE BACK, someday :)
Now I’m off to my flight. See you on the other side of the world.
Much love xoxoxoxo

Het laatste reis verhaal alweer.. Wat heb ik van die verhalen genoten! Op die manier heb ik het gevoel gehad van een afstand mee te hebben kunnen genieten van je grote avontuur! Ik kijk zo uit naar de rest van je verhalen en de foto's natuurlijk! Een hele goeie vlucht lieve Noor en tot morgen!
