Your very FIRST day abroad.
Today someone asked me:
”Rachel, what is the first thing you do when you arrive abroad?”
On the very first day I try to figure out where I am living.
Usually I rent an appartment, which is where I arrive the day that the movers come too.
First I unpack the most crucial stuff-which for me are the bed-covers so that I know I will sleep in my own comfortable bed!
Then I step out of the door and have a look at the street that I live in.
What is the house next to me like?
What is at the end of my street?
How do I get to the nearest grocery shop?
How do I get on the highway?
Then, when I wandered off, farther and farther away….comes the BIG CHALLENGE:
How do I get back HOME????
OOOOPS, which street did I take? Left or right?
Was it this house? They all look the same!!!! *&^*&^**#@#@
When I then asked people where (my own) street is,
I jump up and down screaming:
” I FOUND MY HOME !!!!!”
And that is exactly WHAT I do on my first day abroad!
