Reisverslag New stories
31 maart 2014
Time for new stories again :) This time it's work related travel. Last week I flew to Detroit, Michigan to start on my new project in the small town of Jackson, Michigan. It's a similar project to what I was on in Canada & the UK. This time I even reunited with a bunch of colleagues! That's a lot of fun. So far at least 15 people I already knew from the Canada project.
So far there's not that much to tell yet. I arrived last week Tuesday and did something pretty scary.. I got a ride from my neighbour in the plane! Luckily all went well, but I did think to myself: don't ever do that again! Transportation is pretty horrible here, the only way to get to Jackson is by rental car or taxi. The buses don't even stop there (anymore). Oh well, I made it to the hotel OK. It's always so fun to me to see the big ass trucks they drive here in the States. Especially knowing Europe with the small roads & cars :). I was in one of those big trucks! haha.
Anyways, there's not much else to say yet. I'm just settling in at the office, trying to remember peoples names and understanding what work needs to be done. Currently I don't have my own car yet but I will soon. You really need one here! The one good thing though is that there's a bit supermarket next to the hotel (Meijer) which I can actually walk to :) In the meantime I'm looking for an apartment. Probably I'll be living in Ann Arbor which is 40 minutes away. That's a university town so much more to do and they actually have furnished apartments. Couldn't find any here in Jackson.
Plans for travel are already piling up of course ;) Chicago & Toronto are only a few hours away so they're definitely on the list. In the summer time i'll be driving around Michigan as well with all the lakes here! And there's a town called Holland that I must visit during the tulips festival :) haha.
Anyways, keep in touch here or on FB. Would be nice to hear from you guys :)
