Arrived in Germany
After receiving my visa from the German consulate of Dubai, I quickly let my friend know that I am coming and booked my flight on August 12. I didn’t have many friends in UAE to say my farewells, I lost the majority of them (well, I got rid of them) after going through a big change in my personality and how I view the world. The few friends that I had left, mainly close friends, I’ve hung out with a lot.
I had bought two cartons of winston blue cigarretes and 500g dokha for my friend whom was waiting for me in Germany as a trade where he would take me to Clausthal-Zellerfeld from Hannover for free.
There were so many things I couldn’t take with me, especially clothes and jackets. I unfortunately forgot to take some micro USB cables for my power banks and android phones.
After all the preparation and all the journeys and farewells I had with my friends, it was time for me to travel.
My parents took me to the airport, and we took some pictures. Then, I had to say my farewells and for the first time I was travelling all on my own. I had to do everything by myself.
My plane ride was 5 hours and 50 minutes long. I had to take a transit from Frankfurt to Hannover, and I almost missed my transit plane due to the extensive search done on my bags.
In the plane to Hannover I met a Brazillian cabin crew member who was very friendly and shared some laughs and giggles with, and he even told me my accent was French, but actually it was a mixture between Arabic, Russian and English.
At last, I reached Hannover and saw my friend waiting for me, and he gave me a tour of many areas and then took me to goslar, and then to Clausthal-Zellerfeld.
The weather is pretty cold here, compared to 50 degrees that I lived through the entire summer. I was already satisfied. Unfortunately, I was not amazed by the views so far, as they closely resemble some cities I’ve been to in Russia.
Nevertheless, I have finally reached a goal I’ve been trying to accomplish, and now I will experience the feeling of being an actual independent 18 year old, doing everything for myself without having someone else to do it for me. Wish me the best!
