Host Family!

Yesterday I finally got my host family information! Im going to be staying in Glarus which has a population of about 3000 people. My host family seems really nice - I have a host mum, a host dad and 2 younger host brothers! They love skiing and lots of other sports so im sure ill be able to do some skiing and training over there.

I also have my flight information and will be leaving on the 24th of Feb (9 days away) and arrive in Zurich the next morning.

Still No Host Family!

Its now less than 3 and a 1/2 weeks (23 days) untill I leave, and I still dont have a placement / host family. I emailed AFS but they said AFS switzerland is doing thier best to look for a suitable family for me. So hopefully soon, as it would be nice to know exactly where abouts ill be living for the next year

Not Long Now

Only 39 days left in Australia! The time is going too fast, but at the same time it still feels like ages untill i will arrive in Switzerland. Ive just come back from 3 weeks in Japan with my family and friends - It was so much fun, and felt so good to be skiing again - but coming back to Perth and the 35 - 40 degree heat made me realise how much I am going to miss everyone back home.
Anyway still no news of host family but I do know that I will be going to the german speaking part of Switzerland. In Japan, my skiing instructor was from the german part of switzerland so it was great talking to him!!
And AFS Switzerland sent me an email and a link to an online learning course (Babbel). Its a great course and is actually quite fun, so I definately recommend it!
