adventures, adventures and more adventures
I´m now here for one month, that´s a third of my time here. The time has passed sooo fast! I´m already sad when I think about going home again. Every day I experience another incredible thing in Nova Scotia!
The picture above was taken in the Island Park near to Shelburne. We still have nice weather so my friends and I really enjoy hanging out there.
On Thursday I had my first school dance - first I was really excited, then I was disappointed because none of my friends wanted to go there, but in the end it was a very nice evening! Many Canadian students at any age went there and they even danced, I expected only junior students and the internationals. Nobody in my age would do this in Germany - another plus point for Canadian high schools. It´s not only studying, it´s fun as well!
This weekend we visited my host parent´s son James in Fredericton, the capital of New Brunswick. We drove about seven hours, but in the end it looks like a few inches on a map of Canada - that´s crazy! In seven hours you can cross Germany. We´re apparently very small for you . The first day we went shopping and the second day we went shopping again. Apart from this very important activity we also had dinner in the best Italian restaurant ever and spent a lot of time with James little daughter Emiline who is adorable.
Before we went to the big, big shopping mall on the second day, we were at the Farmer´s Market where we drank a delicious blueberry banana smoothie and where I also found real pretzels (Bretzel in german). The ones you can buy for nearly four dollars at the "Pretzelmaker" are just ridiculous. They taste like butter croissant, not like a Bretzel. This day I also tried Taco Bell which I really don´t like, unfortunately. I have to admit I´m a little bit disappointed. Tim Horton´s where I went to at my first day in Canada surprised me in a positive way so I guess my expectations were too high.
Don´t forget to check out my photo gallery where you can find more photos of the shopping mall and with my host parents!
