Leaving Medellin ... Sweden here we go

When the time finally come to start my trip, my family prepared a farewell party with all my friends and cousins. Around 50 people came to say good bye and wish me the best for my coming years in Sweden.

I travel from Medellin to New York, and stayed there for 7 days before traveling to Stockholm. Over there I stayed first with a friend for the weekend and then I went to visit my cousin Lina, but she wasn't unfortunately there so I stayed with her husband Jersson at their place.

I did during those days several things, I prepare my luggages again with some new clothes and gadgets I bought by internet days before, I also went to the big malls and spend one day in New York city.

I took a train to go to the Newark airport which was around 2 hours away from the place I was staying, I arrived very earlier for the flight so I spend around 6 hours waiting for the plane. The flight was pleasant.

Finally I arrived to Arlanda Aiport in Stockholm, I stayed there again for around 3 hours waiting for my train and when it finally arrived I was very tired from the hole journey. Julian, a friend of a friend was waiting for me at the train station in Linköping, he brought me to my new flat located in Ryds, which I had rented before.

and finally I arrived to Sweden!!
