The Abt's are my 3rd host family :)

I have gotten in contact with my 3rd host family through meine Gastmutter (host mom) Daniela, she is the mom in my 2nd host family. I have only talked with the 17 year old son (Johannes) from the Abt family, but Johannes (Jones) is awesome! He is in 2 bands and I plan on learning a little guitar from him :) also he plays beach volleyball and trampoline? We have yet to understand eachother.. But his English is not to bad. Elke and Dietmar (the parents) and elias amelie eva tim are the other members of the family. Unfortunetly I do not spend to much time living with them. Also they live in a different town then where I am originaly living (Albstadt-Ebingen). Jones calls it a "village" becuase it is so small. The name is Harthausen. And he gestimated 15 minutes away from Ebingen.  From what I've seen on google.. it is still much bigger then Friend. But then again it dosn't take much. All the towns seem beautiful and I cannot wait to enjoy and experience them first hand. Nächstes Blog ... Deutschland! :D:D

minor set back..

My whole month early plan.. most of you have noticed was a crash and burn. Apparently I am to thank for Rotary's new International rule that NO you may not go earlier. So when you see that rule know that yes, I am to thank. ;)

Now that the dreams of leaving the states early is out of the picture my departure date is set for September 1st at 5:45 a.m. from the Lincoln airport. I will arrive in Stuttgart, September 2nd at 8:00 a.m. My flight I believe takes 26 hours.... ha oh joy. My mom has been telling me to take these pills to make me sleep on the plane but with my luck I will end up half way drugged when I reach Stuttgart. So I plan on taking the safe option and arriving very jetlagged. I cannot wait to arrive and see my host families bright and shining faces waiting for me in the airport and then the shocker of I have no idea what your saying. I am beyond words excited to begin living with the Eisele family!

My school "Gymnasium Ebingen" is unreal. It is so big and i feel the need to show it off on my page so here it is... and by the way 30 dayssss!!!!
