Kayaking and Rest
18.06.2016 - 18.06.2016
Today I got to sleep in for the first time in quite a while! It felt great but I was still quite tired as always lol. I had to meet at the school at 11:30 because 5 of us were going kayaking today! I got there at 11:30, however one of the people in our group didn’t arrive until 12:00 (our appointment time) so we were a bit late haha. Opps! We had to walk from the school to the kayaking place which ended up taking about 45 minutes because we accidentally took the long path. Lots of issues haha, but when we got there they were either too lazy to say anything because they knew we wouldn’t understand anyway, or they just didn’t care. But, they gestured to us to change clothes and then they just gave us 5 kayaks. We were not given a guide, a time limit, a distance limit, haha we just went. Cristina (our program director had indicated that we only would have 2 hours so we just went with that assumption. We paddled an hour out and then an hour back. It was super relaxing and it was also great exercise haha. When we got back we changed back and payed (only 6 euro for 2 hours lol!). Then we began our journey back to the town (another 45 min walk). This was my favorite activity so far! I really enjoyed it!
Once back to the town, it was about 4:00pm. Some of the people went to go get food and drinks, but I just went home. My host family was going to be gone all afternoon (except for Sophia) and so I knew I had the house basically to myself. So I decided to take the afternoon for some much needed relaxation and me time. I spent the afternoon doing laundry, reading, doing homework, and cleaning up my room a bit.
I also accomplished finding a place that sold toothpaste because I was out lol. The host family got back to the house around 10:30.
Highlight of the Day: Having a blast kayaking on the river!
