Patlex has indicated that this thread is about Switzerland

Hi, I'm 16 years old and I'm from Switzerland.

In October, I'm going to Bournemouth, UK. I'm staying there for four weeks at a host family (it's a "language stay" - I don't know if this is the correct expression).

Is there anyone from Bournemouth?

Where did I travel to?

Around 6 years ago I spent two weeks in Greece (Kos). I didn't like the food, but the ocean was great (1st time! :)) and I did a lot of excursions (with my parents) - I saw some mills, markets, Kos city (its castle and ruined ancient buildings) and the first volcano! (think it was on an island called Nyssiros)

Two years later I went to Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt. Amazing fishs and corals, impressive pyramids (the sphinx was also interesting :)) - but some of the Egyptians on the market (bazaar) were a little bit too importunate. However, it was a marvelous time! I'd go again.

Just ask if you have any questions! ;)

Wow, I really miss that special feeling of being on vacation - time to get out and go somewhere else.

Good morning Patlex

At 16 I'm just wondering if you are our youngest member !

You will enjoy Bournemouth. Altho' I'm from London, I know the coast well and it is a very up and coming town. The night life is excellent - plenty of really good clubs with a good mix of different music so whatever your taste is, you'll find something. The scenery around there is lovely with the New Forest just up the road a bit which is just breathtaking. It can be a bit of a tourist trap in the summer - the British tend to go in droves to the coastal resorts for their holidays - but nevertheless, it's big enough and cosmopolitan enough to take it! You'll have a fab time. Hope the family you're staying with are ok and that you get what you want out of the stay.

Keep in touch and let us know how you get on

Oh yes, and by the way.... Welcome to TP

Although I'm only 16? - What do young English people do in the evenings? I have no idea...

And is there anything special I should know? (before getting troubles :) )

Hehe ... hi Tahmineh! How are you?

Hi Patlex

I'm very well thank you, don't worry chucky egg u'll be fine-it's just the initial fear of going into a situation that is unknown. You'll be better for it. I wish I was able to get up off my backside n face scary stuff, I'm just a scardy cat at 20 yrs of age. oh well.

Take care. Tikilou L'Amour!xxx
