Host family info and flowers

In two weeks I'll be having awkward conversations with my host mama in France! I am so relieved that I finally got to know the family I'm staying with! There's a Swedish girl living with me so I won't even have to be alone:) Apparently my host parent is an elder woman living in Frèjus, just 4.4 kilometers from our school.

Full of enthusiasm, I already picked up some free brochures of Kuopio for the family. After living 10 years in Kuopio, it was a bit weird to ask for these leaflets but, oh well! I was thinking of giving coffee, salty liquorice and rye bread as a souvenir but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to bring these foodstuffs out of Finland. Anyway, Finnish chocolate is a must!

Then I met boredom and decided to test dad's camera:




Yeah, I know I'm no photographer, but I think this is a good start. I really need to know how to use the camera when I'm in France. It'd be a shame to lose good photographing opportunities just because of my poor photographing skills on the digital SLR camera.

I'm going to celebrate the Midsummer next weekend, so I won't be posting anymore this week. Next week I'll be cooking French food and doing a post about it. I won't reveal which dish, vous verrez!

    1. yeah, i'm obsessed with learning languages! I guess living in England played a big role in learning english. In finland we have to learn english and swedish, but i also study french and spanish as extra subjects. Do you learn other languages there in Australia?
