Back in the USA

On Saturday I checked out of the apartment in Erfurt and was originally going to go to Copenhagen for a couple of days before I tried to head home. But I arrived at the Fulda train station, and after some running around I was unable to get a reservation on the train, which was required. So I decided to take the train to the Frankfurt airport and see what I could do about an earlier flight.

I arrive there at 1 am Sunday local time. United ticket counter doesn't open until 6. So I took a little nap on a bench, and went to the counter at 6 am. All their flights through mid July were booked solid, so were the flights from Munich, Dusseldorf, and Zurich. So they put me on standby for the 11 am flight to Washington Dulles.

There were 9 people in standby with me, including a family of 4 and the pilots wife. 3 of us got on board, I was number 2. So yesterday around 5:30 pm eastern time I touched down at Bradley Airport in Hartford, where Hillary was waiting for me.

I felt that I did all I wanted to do on this trip, and that the trip was complete. It was starting to get old. There are so many trains you can take across Germany. I also started to feel a little homesick as well. But I had an absolute adventure, and I am glad to have gone and cheered on the USA.

So now what? I am going to call the company I interviewed with right before I left to see the status of my application, and let them know I am back. Once that happens, I will need to get a car and most likely move out of the house, Mom and Dad are smothering me with love. Plus Hillary and I need to start planning a wedding. I also want to start eating healthier and work out a little more, I have put on the freshmen 15 my senior year.

Also, I would like to start playing soccer more, whether it be pickup games or in a league. I also want to start going to New England Revolution games also, their tickets are actually quite cheap. So I do have a full plate for the short term.

This trip provided an excellent opportunity to close the book on 4 years of college, and start a new one with my young adult life.
