Slovakia Day 8 – The Calm Before the Storm

Today is my last day of summer vacation. And there were definitely times where I was living my life to the fullest, I have felt like this past few months have been very hectic. Tomorrow I start my first day of school, at Gymnázium Jozefa Gregora Tajovského. I am very excited to be able to compare the differences between the two schools, but for now I am going to just have to write about my day.

Today was a very lazy day, but that doesn’t mean that I did not do anything. I got up today around 11:30, which was very nice let me tell you. I noticed something about myself, that I had known about before but hadn’t quite understood. For the past few days I had gone out, but I hadn’t done any real physical activity in days. So today when I went out to go play some tennis with my host sister, I felt great afterwards. I was in a good mood the rest of the day, and I was very motivated to get things done.

The amount of soup that we eat here is insane. I had thought, “Alright first few days has been soup because they must be wanting to show me what good Slovak meal is” but I am on a little over a week and they are still making me eat soup. Well, making me is not quite right, I love everything they have cooked. And I really do love the different kinds of soups that they have offered. There is soup that is thick, almost like a smoothie, and there is soup that is thin, but full of vegetables and meats. Normally people in America associate soup with either being sick or an appetizer, but here the soup is seen as a basic staple in the Slovak diet.

Today was not a very busy day, so I unfortunately don’t have much to write about. I worked very hard today on the blog, fixing little things and the like. Tomorrow is the big day, so there should be plenty to read about! But, until then! Dobu noc.

All of these pictures were taken on a Sony A6000. If you are looking for a great light weight camera that takes fantastic pictures, I would definitively recommend this setup here.

    Here’s a thought, what do you think about adding a “word of the day” feature to the end of your thoughts? That way we may be able to learn some of the language with you.

        That’s a crazy autocorrect.
