One of my favorite things to do here is go to a museum on a Sunday or after school and just fill my sketchbook with sculptures and paintings. It's heaven! I've wanted to go to the Louvre and other Parisian museums for as long as I can remember, and it's wonderful that I can go whenever I want now. I'm going to miss free museum admission so much!
I am grateful for the trips that I went on. I visited numerous countries for the first time—these countries were, in the order that I travelled to them: Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, and Bulgaria.
The last two weeks of my program involved studying for finals, questioning how I am going to pack all my clothes into my suitcase and fitting in last-minute activities in Berlin. Unlike most people in my program, my last two weeks also involved a visit from my family.
A few weekends ago I completed my first half marathon! I had been training for it for a while but I was still nervous when the day finally arrived. The race was around Rotorua and in the Redwoods Forest area.
