Live from the U S of A!

For anyone who doesn't know, a couple days ago I went on a trip to the states to meet my online girlfriend. I got here last Monday, so just a quick blog on what I think of being here so far. I could just sum it up in one word, but I'll try to be a little more detailed than that.

I got on the plane in Amsterdam early Monday morning. Unfortunately the plane got delayed due to a computer malfuction and they had to replace it. At around 2.30pm I landed in Atlanta, and despite the earlier delay I thought I would still have enough time to catch my connecting flight to Chattanooga. Unfortunately getting through customs and everything took so much time that I missed that flight--by a mere 10 minutes! Luckily I could get on another flight real quick, so things weren't too bad.

When I landed in Chattanooga I was amazed at how low security was at that airport, especially when compared to Atlanta. I was able to just walk right past the one checkpoint they had there, without so much as a glance being thrown my way. I can honestly say that I wasn't expecting that at all, but I guess that makes sense since most flights there are probably domestic flights anyway. Hell the plane that went there seated less than 40 people, and there weren't even that number of people on the flight (not the mention that I was the only person from another country on that flight).

I was a bit lost for a moment, but after going past the checkpoint I quickly saw my girlfriend standing there waiting for me. And man it was the most amazing thing I've ever experienced. I was incredibly nervous about flying out to meet her, but it was definitely the best decision I ever made in my life. From the very first moment that I held her in my arms things felt absolutely natural. My heart was racing like crazy, but not with nerves. It was pure happiness and excitement that made my heart beat so fast.

So from there we went too her home in Cleveland, and it really didn't look anything like I had imagined. She'd shown a bunch of pictures of the inside of her house, but I never saw the outside or the road she lived on. This place really is.. the country, and I can say that I love it. It's a nice free standing house, with a great big yard. And the rest of the city kind of reminds me of spain, except less crowded and with more nature. I swear, if I had a car I would be speeding up and down these hills/mountains like crazy. WOOT!

Ok so I'm gonna end it right here. I'll just say that I want to move here as soon as I possibly can. The city of Cleveland is a fantastic place to live in, and what's more important, she makes me feel better than anyone has ever done. I am without a doubt head over heels in love with her, and I'm already dreading the day that I have to go back. I want to live here with her as soon as I possibly can.
