So, for the past week I've been on a Swedish language camp up in a town calledBollnäs. It took around 9 hours via a train that goes 200km per hour. It is about mid way in Sweden. All up there were 19 Newbies- Rotary kids. 1 from USA, 1 from Argentina, 4 from New Zealand and 13 Australians. Throughout the week I was having dinner at around 4pm so pretty much every night I went for Max runs, Max is like Maccas however is made on the spot and tastes so much better. The town itself was quite pretty and seemed like a nice town. We stayed at a music school- one night they had a little show on which we got to watch and they are all very talented.
Within the week we received the opportunity to do a few camps including ice fishing where you go out on the lake and drill a little hole in the ice. It was very cold and we didn't catch anything. We also had a tour of the school and local council which I though was pretty pointless. WE also visited the special kids sport center where we got to try out wheel chair racing. The last night was the best because we went taboting not sure on spelling but you sit on a plastic board and slid down a hill. WE also had a pancake and bacon made on a fire, which taste incredible.
The whole idea of the camp was to learn Swedish however because everyone there spoke English and the Swedish classes were only 3 hours long, I learnt close to nothing. I did however learn quite a bit about the culture and history of Sweden. I have a huge interest in Viking era and I learnt how to write my name like they did.
