after a long plane ride filled with watching 5 full movies and getting NO SLEEP we finally made it back to the good ol' USA and to Chicago airport. in Chicago we had a delay once we landed because our plane was having "mechanical issues". straight panic attack. i in no way wanted to get on a plane that was having ANY issues, but of course there was no other option. after another couple hours on a plane we landed in Rapid and my wonderful stepfather was waiting for me at the airport. he thankfully helped load my stuff to head home. before we left rapid he treated me to Texas roadhouse where I had an amazing steak and shrimp. it was quite funny also because Laura and I must of had the same idea because we both ended up in the same place.
on our way to eat I was welcomed by the wonderful feeling of WARMTH! i rolled the windows down and enjoyed every minute of it. i also had two hoodies on from being so cold on the plane and so i thought i might die of a heat stroke for a while.
I want to say a huge thank you to all of our guides, ISA and everyone else who had a hand in giving me this opportunity. I hope one day to have many more stamps on my passport and to see first hand different cultures and lifestyles other then the small town life of Nebraska. I hope you all enjoyed my blog as much as i enjoyed doing it!
until next time.. goodbye!
