I am using this blog to tell everyone what I'm thinking and doing beforehand, during and after my exchange year in Finland for 2011.

100 days to go

So I know I haven't posted in AGES and im sorry, I have actually had heaps to write about I am just darn lazy :P

I have a city! I almost had a heart attack as I read the comment my host sister put on my facebook! I am off to Kiuruvesi! Its about 6 hour drive north of Helsinki. Its a small city about 10'000 people and I think its beautiful. I'll add a few photos now instead of going into detail about it.

I have two host family's already and I've talked to my host sister from my first family and my host sister and host Dad from my second family. I have pics of them but I still have to check with them if its cool to put them here! So hopefully my next post will be a host family introduction! 

I also have a host sister in Australia too, Irene! She's really cool, we both go to the same school so I see her there and also all the rotary functions. Im actually really sad I won't get to live with her :( She'll be living with us (well the rest of my family) from about April - May sometime till she goes back home to Austria in July. 

My finnish has been coming along very slowly this last month, I have been doing so much stuff! I had a wonderful trip to Googs track in the holidays but there will be a post about that soon too! I bought the coolest snow jacket and the awesomest snow pants! The jackets blue and the pants are brown and they are pretty freaking cool! I have a temperature forecast on my dashboard set to Tampere and I haven't seen it over 10 degrees this week so I really hope my snow gear is as warm as it is awesome! 

If your my facebook friend, you probably know that my dad had an accident last weekend. Thanks to all those that have been supporting me and my family, it means a lot to us. 

I think thats all for now! Hopefully I'll have two more posts very soon! 

31 days till Harry Potter
46 Days till Final Briefing
67 days till Christmas
94 days till FINLAND! YAY! Double Digits!
