Switzerland: Day One

Well it’s official…I have moved to Switzerland! For an entire year! Can you believe it??? I barely can either.


Hannah, Natalie, and I, along with about 60 other Pepperdine students, arrived at LAX at 3 am yesterday (Tuesday) morning to begin our adventure. We landed in Switzerland at 9 am this (Wednesday) morning. And we have been advised to try to stay up until bedtime so that we can best adjust to the time change. However, after hardly sleeping at all during the past 24 hours…we are all struggling a bit, yet, we are determined to power through! It’s just a little bit tough to be as hyped up as I thought I would be when you’re jetlagged and you run into a few surprises (like how 10 girls are sharing 1 shower). Not quite sure how it is all going to work out. But, I know it will and I know it will be all be so worth it in the end. And hey, it is an adventure after all!

I really am so excited for this opportunity to see the world and immerse myself into an entirely new culture and language too! And I know I’ll feel more hyped up about it once I am all unpacked and settled in. I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for me. I have a feeling it’s going to be one I won’t ever forget.

I hope each and every one of you are having a happy day!
