Hi Guys!
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Whilst most of this actually happened back in England, for continuity purposes I will tell you anyway!

So I will begin where I left off - Preparations for Christmas. I bought German pressies for my family, with Dad getting a Cuckoo clock shaped bauble, and Mum getting a Bremen calendar. I went to the Tourism Christmas Party - and ended up being the only non-German, partying with the Germans from all the different years - even they didn't know each other....The next day was the Erasmus Christmas Party, the party I was supposed to go to!

However, as this is Germany, there's non stop work, so I had lectures all day over the last weekend before Christmas - they sure know how to have fun! We then had our final Anti Mexican Party - the Christmas one, just before we all left for Christmas.

Hi Guys! So as most of you know, I am moving to Germany for the year to study. I will be posting notes like this throughout the year, and even though I haven't left yet (and still have a month here!) I already have some info, so I have started now. I have finally sorted out my course, my accommodation and now my flights! I am leaving on 22nd September and living in Bremen. If you want to see my address, it will be: Georg-Droste-Stra├če 5 28201 Bremen

Disastrous holiday in the Yorkshire Moors, when the car broke down and we had to rely on the limited local bus service.
Day trips to Scarborough, York and Goathland.

"I Need Meat!"

Lake District

Having started University just a month previously, as an ice breaker we were being taken to the Lake District by coach.

Driving up the A1 to Scotch Corner, we then cut across the country to end up in the Lake District, and began the following day with a trip to do some sampling at St. Johns-in-the-Vale, where the farmer came along with his shotgun and wife on a quad to kick us off the land.

Derwent Water

Derwent Water

The evening was spent walking up a hill to get a view over Derwent water, followed by a game of Chocolate Roulette with some dodgy out-of-date chocolates I had found at home.

Grasmere

Grasmere

The next day was spent first in Grasmere for some traditional village tourism, before making out way on to Workington to see some of urban communities; whilst the last full day of the trip was spent in Honister.

Honister

After lengthy days and getting no meat in any of the food all week (with the uneaten food being served back up the following day), in our luxurious location where there wasn't even a shelf, by the end of the week the cold weather had made everyone feel drained.

Blackpool Beach

Blackpool Beach

The final stop at Blackpool was sold to us as a bit of relaxing fun, but the weather and tasks in the morning had meant that almost everyone couldn't care less and just wanted to get home into the warm.
