The Golden City is a place everyone has to visit once.
I went to San Francisco at the beginning of my US trip. I am very thankful that a friend of mine, which I knew 10 minutes at that time, asked me if I want to travel with her and 3 other girls to San Francisco. I was really impressed by the beautiful, diverse and alive city. That weekend also showed me that it was the right thing to escape from my life at home and to try out something new. It was a great experience to see all the popular places and to meet such great people.
“Family is the most important thing in the world.” – Princess Diana
I am thankful for my family. Without my parents I couldn’t do things like spending 4 month abroad in another country. They support me in everything and since I am away from them I realise how important family is and that we should not take our parents and siblings for granted. I am already looking forward to eat a healthy meal cooked by my mother, to listen to stupid jokes made by my das and to fight about something stupid with my sister. To have a family and people that love you in your life is the greatest gift you can get.
