I love ASDA

So today was a fun day as well!
We woke up at around nine and then had a very tasty breakfast of a bacon and egg hamburger.
And yes I actually liked it xD

After that Anna's parents came over and we went for a walk around the harbour.
There is a fair there and we went to see the stalls and there were some traditional English dancers which was real fun.
It was called Morris dances and I filmed some of it :) so if I can ever manage to get a vid online I can show it to you.
We also went on a life guard boat and walked by a big inflatable pool where you could try on diving gear and dive for fun xD But we didn't try that.

After that we went for a walk by the sea. When we got home we ate some tosti's!! :3
And Ingebjorg and I decided to go to ASDA and shop!
And it's REALLY huge. We spend about and hour there and we rushed ourselves xD
We're going back tomorrow and everything is sooo cheap. It's unbelievable.
We're thinking about going shopping for clothes there around 2 in the morning one day :P
So yeah these are two posts but that's cause I couldn't post anything yesterday.
I'm on the family pc right now.
I'll talk to you all later!

I'm in England

So I finally arrived at my home in England!
It has been real fun and not at all like I expected....
(By the way I'm writing inEnglish because it's easier and it help me get used to it!)
First we arrived at the airport in Amstardam. And I was absolutely frightened to death that I would have to fly alone and everything.
But there stood 8 other EF students who were flying with me.

And it was great fun right away! They were so great to hang out with (and a little crazy too, which of course I liked)
Getting to our gate was no problem... well it was areally long walk and our bags were so heavy. But we found our way pretty easily.
When we were at our gate we went through customs and they had to scan our laptops seperately. So some of us had to unpack their suitcases to get them... so weird.
The plane was really small and we were certain that the pilot was drunk. (kidding) The aircraft squng around so much at the beginning! But he sobered up.
We were all sitting behind each other and Joon (one of the boys) was next to me across the aisle, so we could all sit and talk to each other.
It was so fun; the entire plane was silent and we were talking away really, really loud :P
Then we arrived at the airport in london, found our suitcases and then had to wait a long time for the others to arrive. Then we all went with the coach (the bus) and picked up some other students before going to camp.
Camp was great. Though the staff didn't give us any information and the food would have been good if it wasn't so cold (and we had to walk a freakishly long way before we got to the place where we ate).

We all had our own rooms and after resting and eating a late lunch (around four-ish) I went outside to find some of the Dutchies :)
Then we talked and had fun and probably convinced the entire camp that we were cray. We also met up with two Norwegian girls who were great. One of them was a Pinguin Demon who stole your sanity xD
We stayed up chatting with each other till around half past 11.
Then I got home and tried to get some sleep after setting two alarms 'cause I was afraid I wouldn't get up in time.
I got up at 7:20.....
I had to get up around 8:15 and still would have had plenty of time.....
So yeah there was nothing to worry about there.
Before we went to the coach to go to Eastbourne, I met Ingebjorg, my host sister and EF student from Norway.
We're really having fun here and the family is so nice. We just went for a walk around the harbour (ok that was yesterday, but I wanted to post this yesterday :P) and it's great here. There are a lot of shops nearby and a huge 24 hour store. :) (kind of like a wallmarkt( and a cinema. And in the town centre there are more shops but it's about a 45 minutes' walk.
So that was about it :) I'll post some more photo's soon if I can :( I'm not sure if the internet is good enough.

How are you guys doing? Tell me! :3
And good luck with school and everything!

Lots of love & kisses!
