I havnt posted in a while yes I know but I’ve been busy!
Sorry family and friends 😛

So here are a few pictures of my past adventures! The first real exchange student adventure I’ve had to deal with was missing my bus! Yes i know it sounds simple but its not at all!

The day started off with me going to Namur for a little exploring around the city with my Australian friend Courtney. We had a great day just walking around the town and riding a golden turtle statue. I think you’re not supposed to but the only thing the fence was stopping was a mouse! We’re exchange students and have to have fun! 🙂 When it was time to catch my bus I had went to the wrong platform and saw my bus drive by! No big deal take the next bus? Nope… It was the last bus. But luckily Europe has a extremely complicated but yet simple at the same time metro system. So instead of taking my hour long bus home I had to take 2 trains and a different hour long bus home. This happened on the same day that I had a Rotary meeting too! I had to awkwardly text them saying I was going to be late! So when I missed my bus I figured out that my train I had to take was in 10 minutes. I didn’t even have a ticket! Some how Courtney managed to help me out to buy a ticket and just make the train! Before that day I had never transferred trains before. I had to learn pretty quickly. Also I had sat in first class and got kicked out. Kind of embarrassing! Luckily enough I still made it to my Rotary meeting but an hour late! All they did was laugh at me so it was all good!

Another good adventure I went on was going to a brewery. This trip to a brewery was with Rotary! Beer from a brewery is wayyyyyy different than beer from other places. The brewery does not put a heap load of sugar in their beer. In commercial beer there is a lot of sugar so people like the taste and drink more. The beer straight from the brewery is more acidic and strong. Almost like wine! But was still very good! I got to try a cherry beer and a blonde beer. Very delicious.

School is still going very well. I have lots of friends and I am starting to understand french more. I can’t say my speaking has improved that much but I can say I’m not afraid to speak it even if i know I’m wrong. Still going to try at least!

Tomorrow I am going to Bruxelles to see the grand place and to explore! I’ve been there before a couple times but the first time it was pouring rain and the other we weren’t there to fully visit. So I will take lots of photos tomorrow. The sun will be shining. Which is rare for Belgium!

Tomorrow a high of 19 degrees celsius and Sunny!
Will post soon possibly! 😛
