Vacation Time!

Hey everyone!! I hope that you are all well, wherever you are reading this in the world.

My school vacation started on Monday which was very much needed. Sunday I went to The Arc de Triomphe which was so awesome!! The view was incredible, plus the Eiffel Tower was super close so I could take pictures. We went to the Champs de Elysees after which was really cool! The stores were amazing (and really expensive) but amazing.

Monday I relaxed and it was so nice to having to wake up to an alarm clock. I cooked an Indian dinner for my host family, but I had to have mama on Facetime the whole time because I was just having a hard time with everything. The reasons why I do not cook. I also made a banana bread that they really liked!

Tuesday I went to Reims with Danielle for her doctors appointment. Before the hospital we went for lunch and it was nice to hang out just the two of us. After we were finished at the hospital, we went to a shopping centre for the rest of the afternoon and then went home for dinner.

Wednesday, Danielle, Pierre and I went to Troyes to have lunch with Willy. We hung out at his apartment before he had to go to class and then we went to an outlet mall for the rest of the day. It was fun to look around and to hang out with everyone. Plus I found a pair of Nike’s for 40 Euros so I was pretty happy. When we got home I went for a run and after dinner I went to bed because I was really tired.

Today is a nothing day which is lovely. I walked to the bakery to buy fresh bread for our egg salad sandwiches for lunch. The rest of the day I am going to chill, pick a few things up for Danielle at the pharmacy and maybe go for a run if it isn’t raining.

Tomorrow I am going to Amneville with my counsellor (Claire and Valery) and their two kids which is going to be a lot of fun! Amneville is in the north east of France and is really close to Luxembourg. On saturday we are going to a zoo and on Sunday we are going to a pool and then driving home. I am really excited!

Next week I have nothing planned, but I have a little bit of homework to finish up and I am going to work in my journalling bible, run and make tacos for dinner one night. I am not looking forward to going back to school at all though!

Halloween isn’t big in France so I don’t think I will be going trick-or-treating this year, which is kinda a bummer. I will have to watch a halloween movie and eat candy alone, but that’s okay.

The weather here is getting colder and it is always cloudy and rainy. I hope that the weekend is nice and that it isn’t too cold!

I will update you all soon about my weekend adventure!
