Day one, Wednesday;
We arrived in Rettenbach around two or three o’clock. Our host families picked us up. I had freetime for a little while and then me and Sophia walked to the other village to meet up with Luisia and Emmi. After that we went to Luisia’s house and hanged around there for a while. Then her mother drove us to Sophia’s house and we ate dinner there. In the evening we went to a workout gym.
Day two, Thursday;
My alarm went at 5:30 am and we left for school at 7 am. Müesli, yogurt and tea for breakfast. We went to school by a school bus. It took about 20 minutes. At school we played all types of ”get to know each other- games”, with all the other students from Iceland, Spain, Greece and Poland and Germany. It was quite a long schoolday, from 8 am to 4 pm. The rest of the day we sat in a technology class doing the project. Well, we kind of just sat around and chatted with each other because the kids from Spain in my group said that they’ll do the project in Gran Canaria.
In the evening we went to a welcoming party. All the German kids’ parents had prepared really delicious food.
Day three, Friday;
We left for school at the same time as the day before and went to the same class. We saw all the students presenting their presentations about their home countries. At 11 am we went to Regensburg for a field trip by bus. It was a little town where we had two hours of freetime to walk around. It was a rainy and cold day.
Day four, Saturday;
This was our only ”day off” during the trip. I woke up at 8 am and ate breakfast. Then me, Sophia and Elias went out for a walk to an open field to see deers. At 2 pm me and the whole family left for ice-skating. All the other exchange students were there too. We were there for a few hours and then we were split into two groups. After that we walked to a nearby town where we had applestrudel and hot chocolate.
We drove to Nürnberg with Luisia, Svenja and Birgitta. We went shopping and ate at a local restaurant. Later we went to a trampoline park.
Today we have school. We rode to school with the bus. Today we finished the presentations for the projects and gave presentations about the countries. Later in the evening we went to skittle with all the people as a farewell party and said goodbye to all the people from the other countries since we were the only people who stayed there till Wednesday.
Today we went back to Regensburg to do some shopping and we also ate sushi at a buffet.
Today we had to say goodbye to our families and we headed off to Munich with a train and a bus. We did our last bit of shopping there and we flew back to Finland.
