so here is my second blogg entry.. its been a while since i last wrote but i've been away.
this week......
On tuesday I headed for LUND the city of teenagers. ! I got the 12:00pm train. I was on the train and sittting there listening to my ipod when the ticket inspector came along. I didnt feel like saying anything so i didnt bother taking my ipod out and handed her my ticket. She started talking loudly at me so i took out my ipod and asked what the matter was (in an english translation). 'You're on the wrong train love!' haha shit. so i had to go to karlskrona (half an hour in the wrong direction) wait there for half an  hour then get on the other train to Lund. 3 hours later i was in Lund! My beautiful Courtney was at the station waiting for me. it was so good to see her lovely face again!
We headed straight to Expresso House to meet with one of her friends Simon. We all sat in Expresso house chatting about everything. Simon was really sweet. 
We then went shopping in lund! For shoes because i were apparently not appropriate for meeting boys in Copenhagen. I remember courtney and simon asking me 'how are we ment to meet boys bonnie if you are wearing these gothic boots'. haha so i needed a change.. just quitely i thought they were pretty cool shoes..
I found some cute pumps, said bye to Simon and headed back to Courtneys. There were people coming over for dinner...a certain Gustav.
On wednesday Simon, Courtney, Pablo, Simons' friend Gustav, and I hit the streets of COPENHAGEN, DENMARK!

Ahhhhh it was so amazingly cool. I haven't seen so many péople since i was in Brisbane. ha
the day summed up was i bought a cute bag, courtney had a meltdown in the middle of the street, Gustav skulled a beer in the middle of the streets and we crashed into Jack and Spencer. How the middle of the streets of Denmark. 
ohhh and we had deep fried chicken for lunch..eww.  these are some pictures from the day....
happy shoppers. 
little bit tired. 

after Copenhagen we headed back to Gustavs house for a small party.. :) it was a lot of fun-apart from nearly getting slapped down by harry potters girlfriend. haha.

on thursday we woke up rather late and refused (quite bluntly) a morning stroll with the hosties. At 11 we got out of bed and had some traditional swedish breakfast of cheese on brown bread. Her parents decided to take us to ikea! We ended up sitting in one of those made up rooms on the couch and recieved so many weird looks from people. I think it was partly because we were also trying to read a swedish book. ha. in Ikea i bumped into a lovely girl from school Elin. shes so sweet!
After many hours in Ikea we were taken to an art exhibition of photographs. it was lovely but pretty boring. 

on friday we hit the shops again and subwayyyyyyy! i bought the most ugly silver snow boots. butt in all fairness they are so warm.
Saturday I went back to my host parents who came to Lund for the weekend. It was so lovely to see my host sisters Hedvig and Klara. They both live in Lund and i spent most of saturday with them. They are both so sweet and hopefully i'll get to see them again soon, On saturday night i went to LASERDOME with some of courtneys friends from school and got my ass kicked in fighting the red team. i think people picked on me because i was naturally so bad. haha.
Sunday i said goodbye to my favorite city Lund and came back to Ronneby.  



Well this is my actual first blog. I'm not sure where to start..from the beginning or where i am now, three weeks in. In a paragraph i will tell many things of what ive done so far in Sweden.
I arrived in a small place called Ronneby on the 24th January, 2009. seriously fucked from the flight went a little like this. from brisbane to singapore was 9 hours then we spent 6 hours in singapore a made some cool friends, ali for one, and then from singapore to copenhagin which was 13 hours. From Copenhagin in Denmark my host sisters Hedvig and Klara met me and we grabbed a coffee from starbucks which ended up costing 12 australian dollars a coffee. haha. then we caught the train to Ronneby which took 5 hours. All in all long but worth it.
In my first week in Ronneby i visited many places like Karlskrona, shoppinggg! then i went to school for two days. it was pretty hard becasue the swedes are shy. they all speak english though! so im so so lucky. I do want to learn Swedish though. I met this lovely girl Josefin though! (she came over tnight)
So after my first few days at school i packed my bags and went on Rotary language camp. i was expecting something really bad but it turned out to be one of the best weeks of my life. Weird hey. I met so many new people from all round the world and even some swedes who taught us how to play soccer. it was super-although we did have to take swedish classes for many hours a day with mrs crazy herself. But I met the coolest girl from south africa. Her name is Courtney and we shared a room. 
anyway we became really tight and it makes life so much easier when you know someone else is going through the same homesickness/excitment as you. I just love her. She lives in Lund and tomorrow im going there for the week!

this week i had school and well it was okay. As i said before the swedes are pretty shy pårticually when it comes to speeking english. i didnt have friends to sit with on wednesday which made life pretty shitty, i just cried and cried. 
but now its good! 
im really having fun. this week is 'Sports week' which means that every kid gets the week off to go skiing or something. on sunday i went skiing and it was pretty good, i mean i was horrible at it and kept falling on my face but i loved it all the same. Today, Monday the 16th February i made a rotary speech in the  morning which was pretty interesting. i really should've planned it before i got up there and looked like a dork. 
This afternoon my lovely friends came over and we went down to the ocean near my house and took heaps of photos. it was so beautiful because the water had frozen over and it was sunset. then we had tacos for dinner. it was really lovely. they are both the sweetest girls and i cant wait to see them again. 
Sunset on the frozen ocean lucy and i look at josefintacos at mine!
this is with josefin and Louise. :)
anyway tomorrow im going to lund to visit my bestie courtney. I'm so excited! I'm staying there till sunday and then going to see my host sisters in Lund.
Hope everyone is well and im sorry if this is boring. i think my mum will be the only one reading it but thats okay! love your work mum.
