Yesterday I received a call from a random number that I didn't recognize, and when I answered, this lovely women named Winny told me that she was my host mom, quelle surprise! Winny and her husband, Johnny, live about an hour outside of Copenhagen by train in one of the suburbs near Roskilde (I think...I don't know the name of the town they live in yet). She has two daughters, Anna, the oldest, has two kids that are 5 and 3 years old. Pia, the youngest, has three children that are 10, 8, and 5. Both of their daughters live within walking distance of their home! I'm so excited to be a part of this little family!
Winny said that she has hosted close to 35 different students over the years, so she's definitely a pro at this...which is good because I'm going to need all the help I can get navigating around Denmark. They have been to the US ten times, but never to Texas...yet. One of their previous host students is moving to Dallas to get married and they were invited to her wedding, which happens to be this November! So while I'm on one of my travel breaks, they will be galavanting around my hometown, hopefully eating all the Mexican food they can get. Maybe they can meet up with my mom and grandparents and get to know my family! It's like we're trading places...
I have a feeling that we are going to be a perfect match, Winny and I, especially since our favorite season is fall... this is already turning out to be a semester jam packed with hygge :)
I'm not sure if the names of everyone are correctly spelled since we only chatted over the phone. Hopefully soon I will receive an email with pictures of the whole family that I can share with everyone!
As for now, I have an 8am appointment with the dentist and my wisdom teeth so I must get some rest...not looking forward to this at all.
