September 2014- The day I finally met Vanessa. We got into contact a couple months before on instagram as we were going to the same aupair training. We chatted for a long while before we realised that we would be living one road from each other and our future host kids were actually friends! How flipping cool is that?
Anyway- Vanessa stayed for a year or so in America. She was my first aupair friend as well as my first (but not last) German friend. We did a lot together from trips to small mediocre things such as gym and shopping and of course we ate too my Fro-yo together.
Fast forward 4 years and we meet again! This time another continent and another country! Vanessa came and spent a weekend with me here in Rotterdam. Every architects dream (in my humble opinion haha). We spent the weekend looking at buildings (she’s studying architecture); eating some great food and just reminiscing about America and the things we missed about it.
Having friends from all over really makes me happy. It’s the friendships that you have where you might not see each other for a while but when you do; it’s like nothing changed.
