I started off November with a Rotary bus trip to Paris! It was a trip from Wednesday to Sunday with my District 1940 and the other two districts from Eurotour – 1880 and 1950. It was amazing with so many beautiful views and a great time with friends.
It was awesome. After the 14 hour bus trip to Paris, we visited the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, and the Palace of Versailles. We were able to see the Eiffel Tower at night with a boat trip on the river Seine, and during the day when we were able to go up.
Paris was wonderful and it wouldn’t have been the same without the over 100 exchange students. Nearly everyone was Newbies except for seven or eight but we all got really close regardless. It was just a really good trip.
A couple more November things
-I was in Rostock visiting a friend. Sadly it rained throughout most of the time but it was such a good day.
-My Rotary club held a night where we made christmas wreaths which was really sweet.
-.My club had a christmas Basar in the Ratzeburg Catherdral where Lauren (another exchange student from the US) and I helped out.
Its almost Christmas and I am living! The Christmas Markets are in full swing and I’ve had a look at a lot of them in Lübeck, Lüneburg, a few in Berlin, and I’ll be going this weekend to Hamburg. They’re so pretty and it’s already feeling like such a different Christmas as that in Australia. The Advent time is very important here and I’ve got my own Advent calendar.
There’s not much time left but I’ve got a lot planned for December and January that I’m really looking forward to. It’s been really good.
