Here’s my #personal post of my first week in the USA, a bit late but better late then never right? My boyfriend Chris is American, so twice a year we go back to his home town in Wisconsin. The past weekend we were in his dad’s cabin up north in Wisconsin were they don’t have internet, therefore I couldn’t post this until now. I can’t believe more than a week has passed already we’ve had so much fun and done a lot of typical ‘American’ stuff. Will you look with me at my week of ‘tailgating’, ‘theme park towns’ and ‘brat’s’?
Happy to be back in the USA!
Labor day is coming up and 4th of July wasn’t that long ago so everywhere you look you see American flags.
Chris is driving!! He can’t legally drive in The Netherlands, since American driving licenses are only valid for 180 days when coming over and Chris has been there longer.Luckily after our disaster ride to Germany he finally got convinced that he should start studying for a Dutch license.
It seems to have become a tradition of ours to eat at Taco Bell every time we arrive in the USA. Why can’t Taco Bell come to The Netherlands?
Hello Snowbell (its a he), you’ve been missed!
Chris and I at the Brewers game.
With Chris’ lovely little sis Ashley, who got me addicted to this American teen show called ‘Teen Wolf’.
“Shall we tailgate before the game?”, Chris asked me. Tailwhatting…? Yes ‘tailgating’, which in normal English means grilling in the parking lot before a baseball game. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to go tailgating ourself, but this lovely man had some ‘Brat’s’, American for bratwurst, left that he didn’t want to take home. Chris of course was a willing victim.
Watching the Milwaukee Brewers against the Saint Louis Cardinals. We paid only 9 dollar for our tickets and were handed a 10 dollar food coupon. I swear coupons help me love America.
Chris’ friend Samuel came to the game. I really appreciate the friends that Chris has that still come to see him every time he comes back home. I guess living abroad really helps to show who your real friends are.
The father of my lovely American has a cabin near a place called ‘Wisconsin Dells’, which is pretty much a town full of theme parks, other nonsense and nature. We went horseback riding here. For me it was the first time ever and I completely fell in love with it.
Chris has a new camera, aren’t the pictures lovely?
Chris dad followed up half the trail in order to snap a few pictures of us.
Before we took off the guide told us the following “O by the way, there are horse flies here. They are about this big. *showes the size of a ping pong ball with her hands* When you see one siting on your horse, kill it with the palm of your hand, because they keep coming back.” SAY WHATT?! I made the guide kill the one that landed on my horse hehe…
Didn’t I already pick you?
It’s a party in the USA! By the way did you guys see Miley’s VMA performance….
Isn’t he one of the cutest cats you’ve ever seen? Chris’ family found him outside in the snow when he was just a little kitty. Why can’t that happen to me?!
To close the week of we had a nice bonfire, backyard fire in American language. Here this post has to end, because I’m of to Chicago!
