Mini-stay

I'm back from Jutland! It's Wednesday and I'm all messed up with days now becuase It's my first day back to school in Solrød so it feels like Monday. I was in Jutland for a week but it went by really fast. It snowed SO much this past week up there. I finally got to do all the fun winter stuff I haven't had time for. Mini-stay is a really good idea. It's were we go and live with another family and go to another school in another part of the country for a week. It lets as see how differn't things could be in the same country and it just gives us a nice break and lets us try something new and meet some new people.

The 6 of us from Køge went to the same general place in Northern Jutland. 3 of us were in the same school, Søvring Gymnasium, and the others were close by. Last Wednesday we took the train all together, about 4 hours to where we were staying. But we had a little problem to start out, becuase of the snow our first train was canceled. So we had to take a taxi most of the way across Zealand so we could catch the 2nd one. Good thing AFS pays for that stuff becuase it must have been really expensive.

My family was great. They were 4 people (2 kids). Torben was 16 and Trine was 11. I went to school in Sørving with Torben. They live out on a farm and take the bus 40 min. every morning to get to school!!! There was so much snow and we road through a lot of woods. It was like riding through Narnia on the way to school. haha. Torben goes to Gymnastics which just happens to be pretty popular over here and I just happen to be good at so that was really cool. We did that 2 times...It's still hurting. The weekend was packed. We went to a birthday party on Friday and then we were together with some of his friends on Saturday night. That was all really fun. Earlier that day (Saturday) we all went to see some big hills. It sounds lame but it was really fun. There was a lot of snow and we climed up 2 of the hills. I didn't even feel like I was in Denmark




On Sunday I was with the other 5 exchange student. We went to Ålborg, A big city in North Jutland. That was really fun. We went to a Musium and we went ice skating too. And finally we speek danish with each other now! That was the last group of people here that I still spoke english with.


After school on Monday I went with Trine, my host sister, to cross country ski. She was the only one on skis but I just went with her becuase I know how and she had only done it a few times. I convinced her to try some big hills behind the house. Here's a video showing the result of my attempts:

We left on Tuseday but not until around 2.30 So we didn't go to school. We just hung out and had a snowball fight and built some snow men!!!


Here is a video of some weird exchange students:

I had a great time in Jutland. I've been invited to come back this summer before I go home and I would like to so I'm trying to figure that out now :) Now I'll only be home for a few days before I head down to Nykøbing for my winter camp with AFS! I'm busy.

Det er virkelig sjovt fordi du bare siger hvad du tænke på. Det er faktisk lidt svart at forstå du. Måske vi skal skrive vores blogs på dansk. Eh?
