Hi,
I left America April 25th.. So I have been home a couple of weeks. I didn't write anything about my trip back to Sweden because I wanted to surprise some of my friends.
My last weekend in America was amazing, I went to the cheesecake factory with Sandra Saturday evening, and we spent our Sunday in Manhattan. We just enjoyed every second of Manhattan - I'm missing it so much !.
Me and my extra grandma saw the big premier of game of thrones before I went to bed and woke up early Monday morning. The big day was here.. Tons of tears and hard goodbyes... My driver picked me up at 9am, and my first flight to Detroit was at 12:45. Then from Detroit- Amsterdam around 4 I think. Then Amsterdam - Copenhagen 7:55am April 26th. So I landed 9:15 am in Denmark. My parents, sister and my youngest dog met me there with Swedish and American flags - it felt so good to see them again. I traveled for almost 24 hours .. But I was awake!
They had a smaller welcome home party with my favorite " smörgåstårta " and family friends + grandma.
I came home to a new home and a new neighborhood, but I like it a lot now. I mean I have been here a couple of weeks already!
I have been doing so many errands since I got back, so much to do! Now I have finally some time over to be with my family and friends. I start to work on Monday and I start to study as well may 30th ! Wish me luck haha!
My first week here in Sweden was sad.. It get so weird to be back, a piece of my heart will always be in Guilford Connecticut !!
I'm glad all of you have been following my exiting and learning year in the states, I will be back with a new adventure some day- that I can promise!

Hi,
I was really busy on Thursday, the day went so fast and we had dinner for my host dad at the Japanese restaurant. I also tried an avocado roll but the seaweed tested fish so I couldn't swallow it haha!
We had a really good evening, and I gave them all their farewell presents- and I cried a lot as well.
This morning I got the kids all ready for school and cleaned out my room, washed my bed sheets and made it nice for the new Au pair. So now I'm living in my host sons room lol!
We're going too have a steak dinner tonight and welcoming the new Au pair.
I'm gonna stay a while longer here in my host family " ex host family " I don't know how too say it.
I don't have any huge plans for this weekend, going in to Manhattan with my bestie on Sunday that's for shore- buying a new watch there !
Otherwise I have too see what's going on, the new Au pair is gonna learn all the new things and stuff, my host mom is gonna show her around so I don't know how much I will see them this weekend.
I am not working this weekend so we have too see what I'm gonna do!

Hi,
So where should I begin.. My trip was freaking A M A Z I N G !!! All these lovely people - love them all!
We have been doing so much fun things and I'm so glad I did this trip.
Grand Canyon was amazing, it was almost unreal. Me and 4 other from my group decided too hike down a bit into the canyon - I still can't believe I have done it. We had so much fun.
Las Vegas was just O M G haha, I'm so gonna come back. We lived at a really nice hotel near Fremont, and we did the zip line there as well one night. We did the party buss on the strip- a lot of drinking .. Some went out too a club, and some just chilled and drank at in the park and watched the fountain. We had an amazing freaking Vegas night, and I met so many nice boys and a professional gambler that I hung out with a bit. The next day me and Lisa and the boys just walked around in the sun and went into all the casinos and went for some activities.
Yosemite national park was also breathtaking.. We took the 5 hour hike up too the Nevada falls - I still can't believe I was up there!
And we had a blast at the hostel in Yosemite.. I'm not gonna tell everything because some things needs too be private haha. But we had a party there and we finished our tour in SF, amazing city!
I flew home with 2 people from my tour ( they flew too NY and then back too London ).
We did so much on this trip that I don't even know what to write- the best trip in my life, I miss my peeps already !!! But now I can visit my Australian boys, my girls in London and so many other places!
Today it's Tuesday and me and Sandra went for a crazy shopping and lunch out in the sun. I'm just living life right now !
Tomorrow I have so many errands too run and it's also Ls birthday, and then on Thursday its my host dads birthday - so we're going out too eat both days!
But as I said, this trip was just amazing. I already look forward too my next trip !
Here's some pictures from my trip

Hi,
So today my tour started with trekamerica, and we started with walking around in Hollywood, Beverly Hills. We saw the Hollywood sigh, fancy shopping streets, Hollywood walk of fame and so on. It was so much fun too see all of that. After that we started our drive too Nevada ( Laughlin ). It took us about 5-6 hours I think. And now we're here, it's like mini Vegas, we're staying at a gambling hotel in the middle of the desert - it's amazing that they have these towns in the desert. Me and some friends from the trip ate at a steak restaurant at the hotel, so expensive too pay breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Everyone is drinking and gambling ( worming up for Vegas , and I just got outside the area since the guards asked for my ID and I'm not 21..
Tomorrow it's off too Grand Canyon, and I'm so excited!! No one really likes hikes like me so I'm gonna try too get someone with me for a 3 hours hike into Grand Canyon- otherwise I will do it by myself. I know the your leader is gone do a 5 hours hike in Yosemite national park and I'm totally gonna join her on that!
I'm gonna go up too my room and take a shower before I go too bed, while everyone is hangover everyday - at least I'm gonna have energy!
In Vegas I'm gonna party in the party bus but then when everyone goes out I'm gonna take a cab too the hotel!
We're gonna have 12 hour drive from Las Vegas too Yosemite national park on Thursday.. That's gonna be a tuff one !
But one day at a time, and I'm so exited for tomorrow - I hope I'm gonna be able too all asleep haha!!

I got too the custom hotel and checked in and started too fresh me up a bit before my roommate came ( lovely women from London ) and then the girl from Scotland came around 6 pm and we all took a cab too Santa Monica pier and beach. And wow.. It was so beautiful and I couldn't believe I was actually there!
We went out for dinner there as well, they had a few drinks and I way too much fries haha!! What is a vacation without all vacation kilos ;)
It's almost 6 am in the morning and our tour starts at 7:30.. So we have to go over too Starbucks for some breakfast before it starts. Today we're going to be in Hollywood and Colorado river ( I think ). I'm gonna see if I can write later or tomorrow !

Hi,
Today I started my morning with little cardio and a very nice pedicure. I still had some money on my certificate I got when I turned 20 so might as well use it!
It's been cold and rainy this hole day, so me and the kids have been inside this lovely Thursday. I meet all kids + Ds friend off their school bus at noon ( or the bus was late so I was standing in the rain freezing and waiting for almost 20 minutes ).
They have half days tomorrow as well, so they get off and then I have too make them all lunch before they start too do whatever they gonna do haha.. I have been doing their laundry + bed sheets today, so much laundry.. And tomorrow I'm gonna do mine as well- I'm gonna be home anyway so why not. I have too run some last minute errands tomorrow before I start too work again at noon ( I work 7-9 and 12-5 ).
And in the evening I'm gonna go out for dinner with Sandra and her host son. So hopefully my day will go smooth tomorrow.
It's 9:30 and I'm watching scandals and eating snacks, I literally ate a half jar of almonds.. What beach body for California haha??. Summer 2017 maybe will be my year !

Hi,
Today I started my morning with only putting all kids on their school bus, my host mom had them earlier in the morning and feed them and dressed them.
I had a lovely breakfast and just took it easy and relaxed at home until Sandra came around 11:30. Then we drove too IKEA and had a Swedish lunch - meatballs of course!
After our lunch we went too my tattoo studio too pick up my deposit ( since I'm not gonna have a third session I got my deposit back ).
We got back home around 2 pm, and then I called my family on Skype just too talk about my trip again. I meet the kids off their school bus at 3:30, and I got the girls all ready for their swim lesson, so we left around 4ish and got back home at 5:30. I worked until 6pm, then we had burgers for dinner and just talked gossip and about our trips ( my host family are going too Florida at the same time as I'm going to California ).
Now it's 8pm and I'm gonna starT getting ready for bed and watch shows. I'm starting to feel sick.. So I really need to rest and stay worm- I can't be sick on my trip!!

Hi,
Today I started my morning with a quick cardio workout before me and my host dad went too the shooting range at 10am. I had so much fun, and my host dad is a very good teacher. I got some pretty good shoots and I'm gonna miss this a lot.. Only in America!
I meet all kids + a friend too D off their school bus at 3:30, and then I helped L with her homework before we left for her piano lesson.
When we got back it was dinner time and I finished working. It's was below freezing this hole day -2 degrees.. So tonight I'm gonna cuddle down under my blanket with snacks and just watch a show before in going too bed. Tomorrow it's gonna be a bit wormer - thank god, this April weather is playing tricks on us !
I started too pack down some of my things for my trip, I also went too my bank - so now I have mostly done!
