A fond farewell to the British girl in the USA

States Visited 16 states, too many flights, multiple road trips, 128 blog posts and 396 days later my time in the USA and Washington DC has ended. I always knew this year would be amazing, and I had planned for it for so long that I worried it wouldn’t live up to everything I thought it would be. How wrong I was..
This year has been life changing, I have made friends I will keep forever and seen some of the most beautiful sights. I have captured amazing photographs and tried some great food (and way too many burgers). I couldn’t have asked for a better time.
Did I miss my family? Of course.
Would I change any of it? No
Would I do it again? 110% yes.
Would I go back in a heartbeat? You betcha!

I have made some incredible friends this year, friends I will keep for life, and in the past 8 months I’ve had Albert along for the international exchange student ride (although he’s American). Although we’ve driven each other crazy at times from him stealing my food, or me falling asleep on our many road trips (sleeping is so easy in moving cars for me!) We have seen a lot of places together, done some crazy things (as seen in the multiple photos) and he has been an awesome friend. So thank you Albert for showing me California, putting up with my bubble tea addiction and driving me to the most beautiful places. You are an amazing friend.

Thank you to all my friends I have made this year who have been my friends and family while I was abroad. I love you all so much and can’t wait to see you again soon. And thank you to everyone at home who read my blog, kept up with all my stories and excused my multitudes of photos! You are great!
