Week 1

 


So the first week is almost behind us and I have a pit mixed motions. There has been so many new things that it`s a pit overwhelming sometimes. it´s nice to learn new things but sometimes it feels like everything is too complicated.

Sightseeing tour to get to the Riverside museum so it was easy to find. On a another day we walked by the riverside to Botanic garden which is an indoor garden, many plants to see and if it´s cold out side there you can warm up. We had a meeting with Nico from 111 by Nico restaurant, he is a wonderful guy who gives a chance for those who really need it. We were on a Glasgow Music City tour where we walked around the city and a guide told us about Glasgow´s musical history. Of course we have English lessons at mornings so all activities are at day time. Our activities usually ends about 5 pm and when I get to my host family, I am so tired from the days activities that I go to bed like 9-10 pm. That might have something to do with the time difference 🙂 but the good thing is that I wake up every morning at 6 am without alarm clock.

Living in a host family has been a new experience to me, and before I came here i was quite worried how it goes. Now I am not worried at all, Rosie and Gerry are amazing. Their house felt like home immediately. I have quite big room with a comfy bed so I am happy.

Then the weather, it has been nice sunny days but of course it´s more likely that it rains. It is now raining quite a lot so I think today is going to be an indoor day. We are going to a whisky tasting today so that should be interesting.

My English is getting better and better so that´s nice, I can almost think in English. I hope that my speaking and writing gets better before we start our work at Marriott.
