Vivienne's adventure in Cambridge, United Kin

15 July 2017

Now I'm physically ready to get off... I say physically because I'd like to stay longer here... I'm sad to leave all my friends and with getting off I realise it even more...
Breakfast at the airport... After three hours sleep like the day before I had to stand up at 4.30 to go to the airport. I was stressed because I knew that my suitcase is too heavy but I've had a really nice woman who closed both of her eyes ๐Ÿ™ˆ So I enjoyed my last breakfast in England at the airport.

14 July 2017

After we stayed together we walked with camilla to the busstation.. it was quite hard for me because I knew that I have to say goodbye in some minutes. These pictures are the last we took together before she got on the bus. We laught and we cried and both together it was really moveing..๐Ÿ˜” We recognized how important we were for each other and that we have ground a small "Cambridge familly". After we waved and cried Yaren and me went home and she helped me to pack my last things. Then I said everybody else goodbye and went to bed.
On the way to our studenthouse we heard a good song (the sientist-coldplay) and we stopped on the bridge for some minutes. Then I came up with the idea to throw a coin in the river and wish something so we did it. It was a wonderful feeling and even more the hu afterwards. Later on our way we showed Camilla the castle hill and we had again a long, stong hug.๐Ÿ˜ When we arrived in the Mastershouse we went to my room and sang some songs during I was packing my pagage. It was so funny๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ We sang together and we didn't feel ashame or something else๐Ÿ˜†
For the dinner we decided to eat in the wildhood it was also our first visited restaurant๐Ÿ˜ It was really good and also there we had a lot of fun. We have had some interesting topics like our first impression when we met the first time. I will miss this girls so much and I hope we'll meet soon again.
After the heartbreaking morning we went shopping for our last time. We bought some souveniers and the last things we needed. About 3 hours later we were really exhoustet so we decided to relax some minutes in the Jesus Green Park. Before the Park we went to the Valerie Patisserie and ate some cakes which were really delicious. Then we went finally to the primarked to buy a scale for the suitcases it's something really useful:) How you can see on the pictures we took some crazy pictures with the policehelmets and this it how we felt everytime we were together. Just happy..๐Ÿ˜„ It was a really nice last afternoon and it couldn't be better!
This time it was our turn. We had to say goodbye to our friends and to Greg who was our teacher for the whole time. I'm really thankful to had him as a teacher he was always kind and really friendly. On the stage I had to fight against my tears when Greg started to talk about the friendship between Camilla and me. He called us always best friends and Rauf (who was also our teacher) called us always "the golden twins". As Greg started to talk about our hard work I had my emotions under control. But when he started with: "Camilla and Vivienne have a really special relationsship since their first day here they are best friends..." I really had to fight because i recognized that we are at the end of our adventure in Cambridge. He exactly caught the point which let my emotions go crazy. I had an amazing time here and I'm so happy that i took all my courrage to went to this trip and I'm sure it wasn't my last one.

I also bought some things for my travel back and I got really sad when I recognized that I'll leave in 3 days...๐Ÿ˜” In the evening I just prepared some things for my returne and I got even more sad but I know that i have to see the truth in the eyes.
Today was punting day๐Ÿ˜„ It was so exciting and a new adventure. It was so nice to be on the river with my friends and just enjoy the moment.

11 July 2017

After the bowlin we went to Bella Italia to eat our dinner. I ate a pizza margherita and it was really good.
During the late afternoon we went bowling with the school and we had a really funny time. Once I was the winner the other time I got on the second place.๐ŸŽณ

9 July 2017

In the evening I was with my brasilian friend Matteo in the park. Actually we wanted to go to the festival but it was already finish because its sunday and it was the last day... So we decided to stay outside and have a nice evening together.๐Ÿ˜„
Today I slept longer than usually and in the afternoon I went to the park for doing my homework. ๐ŸŒณ I also started my new book in english and it's really gripping. ๐Ÿ“– I'm sure I will really miss days like this. We have still 30ยฐC so mayebe i got a bit broun..๐Ÿ˜„
This morning we went to Granchester and visited the city there. We walked about one hour but it was really worth because the whole way was in the nature it's so beautiful. We walked the whole way next to the river. It was really stranche because as you can see on the pictures the cows were just relaxing in the park. After visiting the city we went to a nice teapark and I've tried a green tea with lemon and it was really good.
In the afternoon I went to the city to buy some postcards. Then I catched a icecoffee and went to the park for writting the postcards and finishing my book. I just didn't want to stay inside because the weather was amazing today so I prefered to stay outside and take some energy of the sun.
In the evening we wen to The Big Weekend in Cambridge. It is the biggest festivals in Cambride and it was really cool we have had a lot of fun and I think it was the nicest evening we had together. How you can see I've taken a picture with the police. I was so happy because I like their uniform and they were really kind. The woman gave me her helmet๐Ÿ˜„ After the festival there was a big firework and then we stayed out fore some more minutes and went home later.

7 July 2017

Today I had to say goodbye to one of my best friends I met here.. I'm so happy to met you Dario and I hope you had a good fly back to Italy. Afterwards we went to a turkish restaurant๐Ÿ˜Š

5 July 2017

And...? Can you guess where I was..? Exactly I was again in the London Theatre but this time i watched "Mamma Mia". It was so amazing till now I've just known the movie but the musical is close to it but the mood in the theatre was unbelievable. It was again one of my most beautiful experiences here I really love the musicals.
Directly after school I went to London again..๐Ÿ˜Š For dinner I didn't eat really healthy but it was so delicious.๐Ÿ˜‹ The traffic is different here so if you are in London don't forget to look on the other side before you cross over a road.
This time we went to the "pret a manger" and bought there some fresh things. It was so delicious and you really recognize that the things are fresh. I was really surprised when I've read the thing on the salad which says: Any that we don't sell are given to charities working with the homeless. I think a lot of supermarked could do this because if they don't give it to the homeless people who can need it.. they will threw it in the bin.

4 July 2017

After shopping and some disappointments we finaly got out dinner. Actually we wanted to watch a movie in the cinema but there weren't some good movies... so we decided to go bowling.. so we walked about 30minutes and then they told us that we would have to wait for two hours. So we went the whole way back to eat some dinner and this is the reason I said "after some disappointmends.
After the school we need to cool down and the best way for this is.. a smoothi from the market. They make the best smoothies with different tastes.
For lunch I tried the Quinoa and it was really delicious. ๐Ÿ˜„
This morning we went to the "Jesus College" to observe some things about the architecture. It was nice especially because this college was so big and you didn't think about it.

3 July 2017

This day was really buisy for me.. In the morning I have had school like every day.. but in the break I was a buddy of three new students. It was really funny to talk to them and explained them the life here in Cambridge๐Ÿ˜‚ Then we went to the market for the homework and we looked around and observed the people there. It was so amazing for me because there was a guy who played guitar and sang really good and he played one of my favurit songs and it was really relaxing to me. I think this will be one moment I'm going to miss in Switzerland. After the school I went to the park with some friends to play football and I had a lot of fun. In the evening I went with Yaren to a bar and we drank some juice and coffee. It was a really nice day and I'm so happy that I've met this people here.

In front of the theater you regonize what a small thing you are.. London is so big and you get lost so fast. After about 15min we finally found our places in the top of the theater.. We had some problems because every stuff told us something else but we finally did it. The musical was amazing unfurtonely it wasn't allowed to take pictures during the show. But I can recomment to everybody going to a show. The costums were so nice and also the scenes were so beautiful. The mood was indescribable and every adult changed to a child. My favourit part was when Aladin and Jasemine flew away on their carpet and there were just stars. It was so romantical and the musinc was really nice. The day was really good because I finally could hire a bike and the show in the evening was the last thing to make my day perfect. We had a long drive back almost two hours but it was worth. Now I'm so tired but I think one of the happiest person on the world.

28 June 2017

It's great feelings to be in London and in the London theater... Im so exciting to see my first musical in my life.
On the way to the theater I've just took some pictures. I ate a chicken salad with fries it was really delicious.
On our way to London...๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„
Today I've had breakfast at school like every day.. afterwards we had lesson and learned some new words... After the morning break the firealarm went on and we had to leave the building fore about 10min. But there was just a person who pushed the wrong bottom. Some hours later I ate some lunch and went to the bikestore... I finally could hire a bike๐Ÿ˜„

After the school we went to the park to play football and just have a nice afternoon. At about 7 I went to the track and did my training it was really cool today because I met my friend again and we spoke about a lot together. I really like it here and I already feel a bit home and I'm sure that I'm going to miss the people here and the language. But let's enjoy the time now and don't think about this sad thing in the future.
Today we went to the Fitzwilliam museum and looked to the greek art. It was really nice. After school we went to the parc and played football for some hours it was really funny. Later I'll be on track and i think in the evening I'll stay home and relax.

I've tried for the first time crep with nutella and banana here it was really good. I've already had a frappe made of coffee. I just enjoy the time here with my new friends and talk about the different cultures.

20 June 2017

Enjoyed the evening with two friends and went to the city to see the firework of the differen colleges.. It was a funny evening and I'm thankfull for every moment that I have here. The day was good.. there wasn't something special i could write a long text about it. Tomorrow I'll go to the city with some friends and maybe go somewhere for a coffee.
I've just finished an other training with a beautiful sunset in the backround... it was the hardest training I've ever done... It was 5ร— 4ร—8'' between this 8'', 40'' break, after 5 times, 20' break. I know lots of you think:" yeah 20' break then it can't be that hard...", but please belive me... it's way harder than you can imagine. The hardest thing is that you have to run every 8'' in 97% so you always should run the same distance in this 8''. Now i can say that I'm really happy because I had enough motivation to walk 35min to the track and back and also for doing this hard program. Oh I almost forgot to tell you that I've made a new friend on track. โ˜บ๐Ÿƒ
I have just ate my first breakfast at school and it was really delicious... Ofter this i went to my first class and learned some general things about the language. In the break I went with my new friend to the parc and enjoyed there some minutes.

19 June 2017

The best way to finish a great day is a good training... I went to the only track which exist here and its a really cool one.. it has 10 tracks and it's really nice. It was my first training in Cambridge and i really enjoyed it. The people here are so nice and helpful. I'm happy that I went to this adventure because I can learn so much for my life. It is really hot here and the sun shines the whole day. Now I'll fall really tired but also happy into my bed and i hope that the day tomorrow will be as nice as this today.
Just found a funny sign...
Just some pictures from my local tour today.. It was really nice to visit the city with new friends and learn some things about it..
By the way this is my school...
Spent my lunch at the river
After I got my key for the school we visited the school and have had our first examen. I've already made some friends but I don't know now, if I'll be in the same class with them. I've god a buddie who's in the same school. After this I went to the cantina and ate my first lunch. It was not bad. How you can see on the picture did i visit the park again with the beautiful river. This was also my first morning in the school. In the afternoon I'm going to a local tour with others who have also their first day today.
