It’s Marnie, and here is another update from Germany. Wow! Three months already, and what an amazing three months it has been. I have done so many amazing things and have made so many amazing memories. Here are just some of them.
I went to a town called Rothenburg for the day with my first host parents. There is a wall surrounding the town and we walked through part of it, which was really cool. We also went to the Christmas museum.
I attended a Rotary meeting which was the three clubs in my town combined. It was a great evening and I met lots of people.
I also met a man and his wife who have lived in Australia, they were very nice and they invited me over for an evening. One evening we went to a castle about 10 minutes out of Würzburg and then went back to their home for dinner.
Easter is a lot bigger here in Germany, it is very common for family to travel and meet up like we would for Christmas. I did two egg hunts, which is quite common and very fun. Another traditional German celebration I took part in was eating my brightly coloured boiled eggs.
I went to a Roman museum in Osterburken with my current (second) host family and we also went to Stuttgart to see a museum with special architecture.
I have just arrived back from Berlin, the capital of Germany. We went there for four days and it was amazing. My host mum and I saw and did so many things, just two of them being the remains of the Berlin Wall and an Egyptian museum with the very famous bust of Nefertiti.
I’m having an amazing time, and I hope you enjoyed my update!
