I’m Hoooooome!

Not that I want to be. I miss the blogging universe, of course, but I wish I was still in Arizona. What I want to do now is tell you each and every thing I did for each and every day I was in America. However, that was for 5 weeks… Plus 5 weeks of my host sister Chloe staying with me. So instead, I’m going to tell you my highlights:

  1. The fourth of July party. We don’t celebrate it, so it was very cool seeing the intense way America celebrates. THIRTY FIVE MINUTES OF FIREWORKS. OH MY GOD
  2. Prom. I looked like a freaking goddess. I know I sound up myself, but I looked SO GOOD. I’m the one in the green-ish dress, and my host sister is the one in two pieceTSC Prom
  3. Grand Canyon. I hiked 3 miles in, 3 miles out. Not that it felt like the same distance, up was A LOT harder
  4. Disney CastleDisneyland! How can you not love Disney? It was two days of heaven and happiness
  5. VEGAS. It’s literally just a giant party wherever you look. Unfortunately, I’m not old enough to do anything, but walking around everywhere was amazing anyway
  6. Tuscon. We watched a reenactment of a gun fight, it was awesome
  7. Driving. Everyone there can drive! Here, not many people our age can. My favourite modes of transport was the trap van (a van with only a driver’s seat), the back of the horse trailer, a convertible, the back of a truck, and the looooong bus rides
  8. South Mountain. It was an amazing view, and I was with my sister Chloe and her friends. It was so peaceful up there. I really wanted to write, but I didn’t bring pen and paper! I’m the one on the far leftSouth Mountain
  9. THE PEOPLE. Chloe, my host sister, was of course my favourite. Now that I’ve lived with her for ten weeks, she’s become my best friend, and I can trust with absolutely anything. Leaving her was the worst thing ever.
    But, there were also a lot of other people. There were 9 other countries; France, Germany, Peru, Ecuador, Macedonia, Ireland, Mali, China and Team Sweden (I don’t know why they were a team…). I’ve made amazing friends from all of these places, plus all their host siblings in America. I honestly cannot imagine my life without them, I love them all to pieces. This is all 68 of us at the Grand CanyonGrand Canyon

I want to keep going, but I’m sure you’re all crazy jealous. Plus, my Sister Cities wall is not complete! I still have loads of photos I want to add to make my wall a shrine to the amazing holiday I just had. So, again, I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much in the last little while. I was too busy having the time of my life



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
