Hey, people of the Internet! I’m back again writing about my experience as an exchange student in Australia.
Saturday, first day of holiday. In the morning, well it was 12 because there were problems with the car we had to rent, me and my host family started our holiday trip. We went to the house of who I could call my host grandparents. It was a two hours drive, but it took us 3 because we had to stop for the baby that cried almost all the time. The house is pretty big and they have a lot of land, with 3 cows. We stopped there for the night. But before we that they took me to see their land, it’s pretty cool. For dinner we had some sausages and steak from one of their cows, not one of the 3 that I saw. It was really good.
Sunday, we travelled almost all day. It was only a 4-hour drive to Urunga, that is where we are staying, but it took us more than 6. The baby cried a lot during the trip and we stopped quite a lot. When we got there we unpacked our things and then we met their friends that are also staying here. We were all pretty tired so we had dinner, watched some TV and went to bed. I have to sleep in the same room as my host sisters, it’s not a problem, but the bed is a bit small.
Monday, first real day of holiday. As soon as I got up and went out my host dad gave me some bread and some parrots started coming on me to eat, it was pretty fun, but I had just woke up so I was a bit confused still. In the morning me and my host sisters went to the park and played with the spinning thing, the one where you stand in a circle and one person spins it, it’s pretty fun, but exhausting, they made me spin all the time. After lunch we went to a beach and played frisbee. It was pretty nice, but we didn’t have a bath, even if I had liked to. After that we went to a lookout and than to the honey place. They had a lot different flavoured honey, like lemon, lime and chilly or coffee. We then went back to our cottage and went to a walk near the sea.
Tuesday, bush walking. In the morning my host mum told me that we were going bush walking. Before that we stopped in an old butter factory, where there were some shops with good things that I could have bought to bring back to Italy and give to my family, but I thought we were just going walking, so I didn’t bring my wallet. We went to walk in a rainforest, it was really good. We couldn’t go all the way to the waterfalls because the oath wasn’t really pram friendly. In the afternoon I just went for a walk in Urunga, it’s small village, there isn’t much to do or see.
That’s all for today, thank you.
