Safely arrived in New York after a long 7 hour flight, tired but full of excitement. We had a long wait ahead of us another 6 hour wait until our second flight of the day! We stepped onto the plane, which resembled more like an old bus from the 1960's. As I found my seat glancing around to find a familiar face my fear of flying started to get worse. Up in the air no more than 15 mins and we get a warning not to leave our seats that we were flying through a hurricane!
I can safely say I have never experienced worse in my life when we eventually got off the plane I didn't know whether or not to kiss the ground that I actually made it to Florida in one piece!
Now 12am Stepping outside the terminal and the humid heat hits you! Yep were definitely in the US, spot the Irish were all standing round with hoodies on in the sweltering heat!
We were taxied from the airport to our Apartments to be met by our landlord Francis who showed us around and brought us to Walmart to get bedclothes and food! Straight to bed for all 6 of us after that day of traveling! My apartment is pretty big considering I share with five other irish interns. We quickly settled in on our first night and as we say in Ireland “we hit the hay” after the exhausting trip we had just completed. Having the weekend off to recharge and find our way about West Palm was perfect because Monday morning came fast.
