This long vacation has now come to an end.
This was a really great vacation with a lot of nice memories and a whole new world of ski!
I absolutely love skiing, I progressed very quickly and I am actually good at it. It is a nice sport, you don't have to go fast to have fun.
I took ski lessons all of the first week and practiced my skills, then the second week I went skiing with the rest of the family. I had a really great time and I am so happy that I got the chance to meet and get along nicely with the extended family. It really meant a lot to me when they all told me what progress I have made and that they enjoyed spending the week with me.
Another amazing vacation is over... yet I am still not going back to school!
I am leaving for England in an hour and I can't wait to speak English again. Haha, I will most likely prefer speaking French, I actually have to think when I speak English now. There are some sayings that I use all of the time in French, but have no idea how to say in English. In fact I feel much more comfortable speaking French now. I have also been dreaming and thinking in French for a while now, it is kind of weird, but nice.
I am very happy that I got the chance to learn how to ski, because now I can drag my parents to the slopes with me when I come home!
A little tid bit : It is very important to prepare meals in advance when you have more than 10 people coming to live in your house for two weeks.
It is also important to have very big pans so that you can cook for everyone at once and not have to do two servings. Either way, it is nice to have people over and to share memories with them. Hopefully I will be able to come back next year and do some more skiing with the family. I can't believe that I will not see the extended family again this year.
Well, I am off to finish some last minute packing! Do not worry, I will be back Friday so you can look out for a post next weekend.
I am about to enter the world of the English...as an American exchange student living in France.
Wish me luck!
