Back with my host family

On Tuesday March 29, I changed back to my host family. I had to move to another family for 8 days because my host family went to Mexico for vacation.

Bonfire day

Yesterday was a busy day. It was the day when we made a bonfire with our friends. In the morning, we prepared the food.

Spring break - Movie night

On Thursday, the 23rd of March we had a movie night at my host family’s house. We had to prepare the whole house for the party. Cierra and I cleaned up the house and we prepared the buffet.

My First NBA Game - A Special Experience

The Pacers game was one of the events I have been looking forward to the most, as I am a big fan of the NBA and basketball in general. I have watched a couple of NBA games on television before, but obviously that experience is very different than being in the stadium.

Knives, shotguns and crossbows

This day my host partners, Serena and me went to an open-air mall in Noblesville. We drove about 40 minutes and we almost had an accident on our way there.

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis

On Sunday March 26th 2017 I got up very early. While the others in the room still slept, I already went to the pool of our hotel.

My host family and I left for three days to a water park in spring break. The water park was like a “tropical island”. It was my first time in a water park like that and I liked it a lot because all guys are happy. On March 21 was my 17th birthday and I was very excited, because

My trip to St. Louis

From the 24th to the 26th March 2017 my host family, Florian and I visited St. Louis. It’s a big city in the state Missouri. On Friday, we started our tour at 12:15 pm. We made a stop at Wendy’s and ate burger for lunch. At about 5:30 pm we arrived at our hotel which is called “Hilton”.

Exploration and cuteness

Our laser tag trip

On Tuesday March 21, 2017 around 35 GAPP students went to laser tag! The whole group met in front of the school at 11:30 in the morning. Then we drove with a “typical American school bus” to the “x site” hall in Indianapolis. When we arrived at the hall we first had to sit down and got something to drink.
