Welcome to the USA, Welcome to Florida

Thomas and me met in May of 2012. We had a blast together and it seemed too good to let it go besides living on two different continents. So I went to the USA in August of the same year — no pressure, visit and see how it goes and then travel some by myself. I arrived in Lakeland, Florida and we spent some days sitting house and playing home at the house of Tommy’s mom — a wonderful space right next to a little picturesque pond.
Afterwards we went on a trip to Tallahassee, Floridas capital, visiting Tommy’s uncle, aunt and cousins, all of whom have a very special place in my heart — beautiful people all around. On the way we enjoyed beaches, springs and meeting wildlife. Even though it is always special to encounter critters, meeting manatees up close was one of the more memorable ones.
When the Semester started, we enjoyed a bit of the student life together — including the opening football game. What a party that was — a fest of patriotism — skydivers with the American flag and all — Yeah America!

It was (finally) time to set out and go on a trip by myself. The plan was to explore the East coast — from Miami to New York — with a rental car. First destination: the iconic city of Miami.
