Which turned out to be quite close by (if you walk the right way that is. Ahem) and which was much nicer than I anticipated:
I even got the first mild sunburn of the year✌🏻
And then I got in MY car! And drove to the secondhand store to look for an additional lamp. I found a few other things as well and the apartment looks way more homey with these few extra items:
I even attempted a target run without my GPS on..... well, three times a charm right? Because that’s how many times I had to try to get there without happening to end up in the wrong lane at one point or another. On a positive note I got to see a bit more of the local neighborhood!
When I got home I reached out to a couple of other Danish women living in the Philadelphia area and one of them invited me for brunch in New Jersey Sunday. She lives about 20 minutes away and I just had to show up at her house then they would give me a ride to New Jersey. And not just any New Jersey but super fancy Montclair right outside Manhattan. Where I met some more of the family. It was such a nice day and honestly - the first time a stranger offers to have you over, when you have just gotten to a new area makes you breathe a little deeper, relax the shoulders, and genuinely start believing that everything might be OK❤️
