Here’s me on a ski tour: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2778031572451&l=7d7e2fb97a

A lot has happened since my last blog post. I moved host families, and I absolutely love my new host family! I moved on February 11, to Trieben, which is a town that is 14km away. It’s just on the other side of the mountain. Now I have to take the bus to school, which leaves at 6:45, so I’m up at 6. In Admont I used to get up at 7, so it’s a bit earlier.

I started to read the first Harry Potter book in German and it’s a bit difficult. It’s fun to try though, and gives me a good challenge with German.

In February I went skiing in Switzerland and visited Venice with my mum which was an awesome experience! Switzerland is such a beautiful country, and Venice is a very interesting place.

School here is alright. I don’t do much in class, and it’s for sure not the most fun part of exchange, but it allows me to work on my German, so it’s alright.

A couple of weeks ago I was visiting my host mums brothers house, who is a farmer. I got to milk a cow which was a pretty cool experience. Now everything is done with machines, but it would have been so much work to milk all your cows before these machines where invented.

Last weekend I was on a ski tour at a mountain called Der Dachstien. We had avalanche beacons and everything, and we had a good amount of new snow. We skied from 2800 meters elevation down to 1200, so it was an awesome day.

I’ve now been on exchange 7 months, and it’s very hard to believe. I’m so excited for the rest of my year. Saturday I go to ski camp for a week. After that I have a week of school, then Easter break. I move host families around this time as well (maybe). Then my dad comes to visit me, and after that I have a couple weeks of school then Euro Tour. For Euro Tour we go to Czech Republic, Germany, France, Andorra, Spain, Monaco, Italy, and Austria. I’m so stoked for the trip! After Euro Tour I have a month left and them I’m home.

I know I’ve been bad at updating the blog, but from here till the end of the year I have a lot of interesting stuff happening, so I will try my best to update more frequently. If anyone wants to talk to me with email, feel free to send me one. :) My e-mail is lukaslarsson(at)shaw.ca.

Here are the January photos: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2787845417791.2117920.1307983897&type=3&l=66970da867

I will post with links to the february / march photos once they are up. I still need to go through about 1000 of them.
