First week in York
To begin with the arrival
January 26 :
We were very short on the plane an hour and 10 minutes .When we arrived at the airport Leeds-Bradford waiting for my suitcase, I found out that my suitcase was missing. So I left my name and address in York at the service-desk of Leeds airport, called home and happily I got my suitcase Sunday evening .
It was quite a long journey from the airport to my host family , bus, train , taxi. In the taxi I became very nervous.
When I arrived at my host family everyone was already waiting for me it was a warm welcome . The soup was ready that was very nice because I was really hungry! My hoste family includes Sophie, Steven they are parents of, daughter Charlotte she is 9 years old , son James 5 years old , also another student in the host family from Egypt called Thoria she is my age, which is very cozy. There is also a dog Harvey and a hamster who coincidentally also called Daphne .
After lunch with soup I got to eat an awful lot of dinner, unfortunately it was too much .. They all eat here so much every day that a small eater like me is very surprised about
My room setup as follows waited for my suitcase to arrive, then went to bed and was very nervous for my first day at school in York.
January 27 ,
10.30 We had be at school. Sophie gave me a lift, they drive here like mad people and also on the left side. But I had to pay attention because she showed me the way to school that I must ride with a bicycle, no time to practice must remember it the first time.
Once at school, we had the Monday explaining everything in a super small class with only two other girls. They contribute to this in training so much make-up such thick layers I wonder every day about .
We micordermabratie practiced and electric depilation . The girls in our class took us to the Tesco which is a giant supermarket where we could eat our lunch. We sat down in the restaurant and as I expected nothing but fat snack . I bought a bun in the oven with mozzarella and tomato pesto was tasty but very much
Back home we would go by bus but we had to call our host family because we were lost haha, .. It was half past six and dark Could not find the bus and wandered around.
The dinner was again violently much, I almost exploded after that time . However, it was delicious
Today was a long day, I could sleep late, had to start at 11 o clock until 18.00 hours, they make a lot of long days our classmates until 9 in the evening ..
I would bike to go to school together with Larissa,but her bike was not ready to go. Also, it was raining so we were brought by Larissa her host family .
At school we had facial learned their facial massage and had some theory anatomy is difficult , let alone in English .
Again lunch at Tesco , this time I bought ham sandwich, I’m completely done with all these greasy snacks.
It was an interesting day .
Before eating I played with the children on the WII unfortunately I cannot win .
When I come back from England, I have almost a race so I should be good practice . This evening I ran to Larissa to work hard to walk .
Unfortunately our tempos differ too much so it was more talk than walk and run.
The first day on the bike to school , what a drama haha . On the left side of the road easier said than done, cars honking and Swearing among the crowds on .. I have an regular bike and had no experience with hand brakes I had cold hands so a hand in my pocket one hand on the hand brake..and so I fell in the street where Larissa is staying haha . Apparently you are not allowed here 2 to 2 bikes became clear after all that honking . After an half hour cycling we were there .
Today our group was split into 2nd at school Ashley and Margot have times other than Larissa, Sophie and me.
We started at 11 am and again till 5. We started with a full body massage which was done for us . It was delicious, the massages here are much different than our massages in the Netherlands .
Today there was also a visitor, a very nice neighbor.
I tried to explain that I wanted less food on my plate, it was a portion that my father cannot even .. Today I again just Skype with everyone .
Today short day from 9 half pas 12 we watched reflexology . Believe me nothing more boring than this. When we were done, we biked to Ashley her house . Her host family took us to the city . A day of shopping with 5 girls is amazing, the city is super beautiful ! Our group is very lucky to be here, it was super fun !
And then we had to take the bus home we get on the wrong bus ... So we ended near our school, which is 25 minutes by bicycle ... After a very long walk we were home . So could join for dinner It was too much again today and Sophie ate the rest of my plate still empty. After dinner I had a nice chat with Thoria so very cozy !
After all that food I waited a while, and then went for 40 min of running. After running, I went to learn Egyptian dance. I leaned Thoria the dreams dance carnival song haha ! She could not stop laughing, we did WAKA WAKA song dances . And again skype haha .
January 31 ,

What a perfect description of your adventures in your spare time and experiences within the lessons. Good that you decided on healthy food.... Hope the remainder of the stay will be of the same quality and that you'll write about it with the same enthousiasm I find in your report I have just read....
Keep up the good work!
