Ok so its been one week on the continent and so far im loving it! started off in frankfurt where we were for a night. The jeg lag got the better of me so just spent the day walking around trying not to fall asleep! we had a bit of trouble when it came to getting to stuttgart. We thought we had booked a way to get down but something went wrong with the internet. So the afternoon was spent running around trying to get a train ticket. Everything turned out all right in the end thought and by 12:00 we were on our way! The train trip was a very interesting we had a crazy guy start talking to us about mangos! He honestly talked to me (courtney just sat there listening to her ipod!! thanks court) for 45 minutes! i couldn't believe that someone can talk about a piece of fruit for that long! other than that our first train trip went very well. We didn't get lost!! yay.
Stuttgart was great and it helped that we had someone to show us around. Our first day in stuttgart we went to school with Lutz and went to german, art and maths. later we had a tour around stuttgart with Lutz and his mother. Later on we went ti a german 18th! I had a great time getting to know everyone and was really surprised at how good their english was! everyone could speak some english and most were fluent! The night kinda got away from us and before i knew it it was 4:30! So we didn't get much sleep that night because we were up at 7:30 to get our train.
This train trip was a little harder that the first. The train from Ulm to Munche was delayed for 20 minutes so missed the next 3 connections! i wasn't impressed and by the time we got to Hopfgarten i had had enough!
Snowboarding is awesome! The first day of snowboarding was spent on my ass but have got the hang of it now!! Yay. Some of my stacks have been quite spectacular and my tail bone is close to been fractured but it has defiantly been worth it! so has the contiki (even though it is costing me a fortune!) had some very interesting nights since we have been here. Most of the people in our group are great and really easy to get along with! There are lots of aussies and south africans which is sick coz there all great! first time on the other mountains and it was cloudy all day so we would be going along and the next thing you know your heading into the forest!! scares the crap out of you!! that or your you we got lost!!
Well im having a great time over here but getting very tired but because the snowboarding is taking it out of me! ill try and keep this blog updated with what i get up too!
