Hey there!

Today I'm writing about friendship. And I don't really know how start this blogpost. Friendship (hopefully) is something that has accompanied you throughout your whole life. There have always been friends of yours, and they have always been around if it is at school, work, your athletic club, or choir. These friendships were based on same interests and you saw these people at least once a week on average. But now, for me there is a totally different kind of friendship. There still is the kind that is based on same interests and mindsets and I experienced that in the way that I was friends with every exchange student I met and we immediately had something to talk about. I've never experienced anything like that before. Then there's the other kind of friendship exchange students (and world travelers) get to experience, the friendship that is strong enough to stretch around the globe, to reach from country to country, to build bridges from culture to culture. This friendship is one pof the greatest things, or feelings, I've ever experienced, but it is very hard to maintain. You don't just see these people on a regular basis, like you do with your friends from school. You can't just text them saying "I'm coming over in 10 minutes!" or "Do you want to hang out and grab some food tonight?". No, this doesn't work if there is a distance of multiple thousand kilometers between the two of you. Yes, today there are things like Skype, WhatsApp, or FaceTime, but it obviously isn't the same as meeting someone in person. Also, the other person might still/already be asleep or in school while you aren't so coordinating Skype times can get very difficult. And then there is this other kind of friendship where you don't see each other for a long time but connect immediately once you see each other again after 5 months. This is awesome but not often the case, people change, people grow, and sometimes this can change your relationship too.

I don't really know where I am trying to get to with this post, but I hope there is at least one person out there who understands me or maybe even just reads this and might think "hmm, that's interesting". Yeah, I really don't know how to express my thoughts today but I have been wanting to write about friendship for a while now, so I thought I'd finally give it a try and actually write the entire post. Anyway, this might get deleted, so feel lucky if you can read it (maybe, could also still be up a year from now but you never know), so yeah, thanks for reading!

Enjoy life and laugh lots,

Chantal (very confused and not good at putting thoughts into words at the moment)

Hey there!

As you might know, I spent 5 days in Finland with Lotta. Here I'll share some of the 300+ photos I took and tell you a bit about what we did...

Enjoy!

Wednesday, August 2

On Wednesday morning I took the plane from Zürich to Helsinki. It took me about 15 minutes to get through security and to my gate and I did not have to show my passport at all (which is because Switzerland is part in the Schengen contract (?) which allows us to travel between European countries more freely and there's also a trading part behind it which I don't know more about though.). So I waited at my gate for a bit and then boarded the airplane. The flight was about 2 hours and 30 minutes long which I spent either trying to sleep or looking out the window. Landed in Helsinki I made my way out the airport pretty quickly and then met Lotta and her mom. They picked me up at the airport, because it would have been complicated for me to take a bus to Tampere since I didn't know how long it would take me to get out of the airport and you have to book those tickets in advance. Anyway, we drove from Helsinki to Tampere and I realized that there is a lot (like really, A LOT) of nature, trees, and lakes. I knew that Finland was called the "Land of the Thousand Lakes" but really, after every few minutes there is a new lake next to you or you're crossing another bridge. Arrived in Tampere, or more Hervanta which is the part of Tampere Lotta lives in, I dropped my stuff at their house and we drove into the city so I could see what it looks like from up above. There is a hotel/bar at the top of a tower where you have a pretty nice view over Tampere and its surroundings (including 2 lakes immediately in/next to Tampere and some more a little farther away). After that we drove back home and ate dinner together with her family.

Thursday, August 3

On Thursday we slept in until about 10am and then went to a market to eat breakfast. We had two donuts, one was filled with Raspberry jam (kind of like a Berliner) and the other one was some sort of vanilla-dough. We also had a very green drink which wasn't my favorite, but apparently is a well known brand in Finland. After that we drove to Lotta's school, because she had to pick her courses for this year. After that we drove home again just to leave shortly after our arrival to go to Lotta's grandma's place. She lives at a lake (what a surprise!!) in a really nice house. Also, all the Finnish households have a sauna, I forgot to mention that before. Okay maybe not all of them but at least the 3 that I have been to. There are 3.3 million saunas in Finland and 5.5 million people so everyone has access to a sauna to some degree. Anyway, my point is that we, of course, used the sauna and also jumped into the lake.

Friday, August 4

On Friday we slept in quite a bit, we got up around 11 or maybe even 11:30... Since we stayed at Lotta's grandma's we had to drive home, where we didn't do much more until the evening. It was raining so our plan to walk around in the city didn't look that appealing to us. For dinner we went out to Hook, it's one of the really popular places in Tampere and we were lucky to get a table right away. Hook is well known for their chicken wings which Lotta took. I decided to take something else and so we basically shared both our meals to try more than just one thing. After dinner we stopped at a little store to get some candy and ice cream and then we just watched some TV before going to bed.

Saturday, August 5

On Saturday we "only" slept until about 10am and then ate our daily breakfast, rye bread with butter (that's actually not quite butter but something else), and cheese. After that we drove kind of into the city and then past it onto a "half-island" thing - part of Tampere is between 2 lakes and the river that's connecting them, so we were on that part of it and there it's not the inner city of Tampere. Anyway, that's where Flow Park is. Flow Park is an outdoors climbing park where there are different challenges to master up high between the trees. Lotta and I stayed there for 4ish hours and mastered all the trails. After that we went back home to shower and change and then drove back to the city at about 10:30pm to go out for dinner. We went to the Restaurant Napoli, the famous Pizzeria in Tampere. We got there quite late but we also got the perfect parking spot right in front of the door to the restaurant! The food was quite good and gave us energy to walk around the downtown/inner city part of Tampere at night. After some time we walked back to the car and drove home. We were kinda tired from all the climbing but didn't really feel like sleeping so I think we ended up turning the lights off at 3am...oops.

Sunday, August 6

On Sunday morning we had to get up around 8 since we had to leave at about 9 to catch a bus to Helsinki. The day before we had already packed up most of our things and given them to Lotta's parents who had left to Helsinki on Saturday afternoon. So we only had our backpacks and traveled to Helsinki, totally more than tired. We wanted to sleep but then somehow got very distracted by German/Swissgerman and Finnish (also, the couple sitting on front of us was speaking partly German...). Suddenly we were in Helsinki and didn't have time to sleep anymore so we got food instead. It was pretty good and after that we started to discover Helsinki by just walking around for a bit. Helsinki is right at the sea so we took a boat out to an island called Suomenlinna - a Finnish sea fortress. Suomenlinna is actually spread over six islands and a UNESCO World Heritage Site (read more: http://www.suomenlinna.fi/en/ or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suomenlinna ). We spent about 3 hours there and then took the boat back to Helsinki where we looked at the Cathedral and tried to escape the rain. Sadly it was raining quite a bit during my time in Finland, but I still got to see quite a bit. We just walked around the city some more and then took a train out so another town where Lotta's mom picked us up. We drove to their lake cabin which is a very basic place without any running water (it still has a sauna though...of course!). The place is really nice and Lotta and I even had our own little house/room where we slept. The bathroom was also separate in a tiny little house some steps up from the main house. We ate dinner there and then used the sauna before we went to bed. That night we also did not sleep too much since that was the last time we had together except for the drive to the airport early on Monday morning...

Monday, August 7

On Monday morning we had to leave from the lake cabin at about 5:45am. We were all pretty tired, but managed to wake up a little more in the car. The drive to the airport wasn't too bad, especially since we were able to choose a route that didn't lead us to an accident which would have stopped us for quite a bit. At the airport it was time to say goodbye and suddenly I had already been through security and was waiting at my gate. Again, I did not have to show my passport once! But I bet if I would have forgotten it I definitely would have had to show it at some point... Anyway, I slept almost all the way from Helsinki to Zürich and then had to concentrate to not fall asleep in the train from Zürich to Rheinfelden.

That was it, my journey to and in Finland! I really enjoyed the time there and would definitely recommend Finland to travel to! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and seeing some of the pictures I took. (There are some more on facebook)

Enjoy life and laugh lots,

Hi there!

I'm going to try to post some posts about places in Switzerland I went to/hiked. You can find all these posts in the category Switzerland on the left side of this post.

This post is about our hike on the Rinerhorn, some mountain in Grabünden. Grabünden is one of the cantons (=states) in Switzerland, and actually our biggest canton, looking at the area. To start the hike we took the bus from Davos up to Sertig,Sand. There we started our hike walking up for about 2 hours. After that we reached a little flat area with some tables and a fireplace where you could 'cook' your own lunch. We kept walking for another 30 minutes until we reached the restaurant where we ate our lunch for that day. After that we walked back down a different way. Walking down was a little faster, maybe because we didn't have to step aside for soo many mountain bikers anymore... After that we took the trail back to Davos and then got some rest at our place. :)

That's it for today, but you'll get to read about my Finland adventure pretty soon, I hope.

Laugh lots and enjoy life,

Chantal

Hey!
This post is about our little hike up Wasserfallen last Saturday. Wasserfallen means Waterfalls/falling in German and it's a little hill/mountain/rock thingy with waterfalls → that's where it got it's name from. Wasserfallen is about 30min away from Magden so we drove there. At the bottom you can choose between little gondolas or walking, and we decided to walk up. It takes about 60-70 minutes, sometimes even less. There are different routes, some are on a gravely road, others go through the forest. We took the one through the forest since we'd be taking the other one to come down. The walk/hike is pretty nice and the view is great at the parts where you can see through the trees. After you walked all the way to the top there's different things to do. They have a "climbing park", a park where they built different adventure trails into the trees and you have to complete different tasks to get from tree to tree. (I don't really know how to explain this but I think you know what I mean 😅). Anyway, there's this park, a restaurant, and a scooter rental! The scooters are quite big and the fun part is that you can go down Wasserfallen on them! We rented 3 scooters and then made our way down, back to the car. Going down is a lot of fun, especially after walking up 70 minutes...
I hope you enjoyed this post even if it was written very badly, I'm sorry.
Laugh lots and enjoy life,
Chantal

Hey!

This is just a random update on my life and more of a journal entry instead of telling you about specific experiences I made. Enjoy!

So, being an exchange student is great, it's awesome, it's probably the best thing that's ever happened to me, but of course there are also a few bad parts. Everyone now thinks of being homesick, missing your family, missing your favorite food or activity, all these things you miss during summe break or while traveling. I don't really agree with that. I was only homesick-ish two times, the first one was rather at the beginning where I was a little sick and a lot of things just went wrong and I felt lost and just wanted to know the place better and how everything worked so I wouldn't have to be so dependent on everybody else. I don't know if this counts as the typical homesick though. The other time was on christmas where I missed my sister, but after skyping and seeing my natural family that bit of homesickness was gone too.

So, if it's not being homesick, what is it then? Well, let me explain. After your exchange year is over you go back to your Native country and of course are all excited to see your family and friends there again. But, did anything really happen there? No. Well, this train station got a new store, the store in that corner is closed, and you missed a few parties and stories. But did they change? No, not really, not compared to how you've changed. Which is totally reasonable! Anyway, you come back with all these new memories and experiences in your backpack and they are kind of stuck at the same place. Maybe their backpack got a little heavier too, but not like the one of an exchange student. The first two weeks are wonderful, you get to see all your friends and talk to them, and you realize you basically are where you left off. Which is awesome! But no one really cares about your year, your experiences. While you're trying to catch up with everything that happened, they just want to know how it was. Well, how can I describe 10 months in a few sentences? I can't. So I just say it was great, awesome or ask me a little more about what you want to know so I can tell yo, 10 months are a lot but then nothing really happens. Maybe one question from your closest friends but besides that...nothing.

And then the other part that really isn't too great is that now your friends are all over the world. Hmm, isn't that awesome, knowing people all over the globe? You have soo many friends now! Yes and yes, knowing the people is awesome, but they are just so far away. I can't just walk to Spain to hang out on a Tuesday afternoon. I can't just bike to Finland to have some FroYo. That just doesn't work. But, you have friends here too? Yeah, I do, but it's different. Not that I don't appreciate them as much, but it is just different. All these people you know around the globe have a lot in common with me. They have all been exchange students and are going through the same things as I am going through them. We can talk and the other one just understands, no explaining needed. They know how you feel, how you think, what probably bothers you, what excites you. "Normal" people need explanations, and after giving these explanations a few times you realize, they still won't really understand. They can try, but they will never fully understand and they can't say same or I agree! or That's how I felt yesterday. The people that understand you the best are far far away and seeing them is difficult, and expensive.

So, conclusion; the parts that suck about being an exchange student is change and having friends all over the world. Hmm, isn't that how programs advertise exchange years? Yes, exactly, and these two things have so much more meaning in them than just the obvious one.

So, why is this blogpost called life is awesome? BECAUSE IT STILL IS! Having changed and grown so much and having friends all over the world, I can now do so many more amazing things! Example; I just booked flights to Finland a week ago and I will be there in August! I'm making plans for next summer to go to Croatia just with friends! I just bought concert tickets a few hours ago and I won't go only with Swiss friends. Life can be awesome, if you want it to be. You just have to work for it and not only see the bad sides I just totally wrote two big paragraphs about. But, whatever, these things also need to get said once or twice. Since I have been "home" I have already made amazing plans and you just have to look for these opportunities and take them. Say yes more than you would want to, say yes even if it scares you to jump into freezing cold water, say yes, to do something you have never done before in life, say yes to opportunities, say yes to living an awesome life!

I feel like this blogpost is veeery confusing and I don't really know where I am going with it and who even will read it. I hope you aren't as confused as I am and you don't think I am a total weirdo (which I think I am but I don't mind...). I just felt like writing this morning and calming my huge excitedness (not a word but who cares) down a little bit. I'm goingn to end this here and I hope you my dear reader will still read more of my blogposts.

Enjoy life and laugh lots,

your way too excited Chantal :)))))

Coming home is...

...realizing how humid Switzerland (or everywhere compared to Bend) is

...realizing how small our fridge is

...using the bathroom without closing the door

...not having to look up on the map where to go when biking around town

...eating food and drinking drinks I haven't in a long time

...using A4 sized paper with 4 holes again instead of the American sized, 3-holed paper

...probably making many mistakes in German and English

...enjoying the first (and second and third) time it actually rains

...smelling the smell of rain and wet grass again

...recognizing people driving by on their bikes

...anticipating a sister 10cm shorter than she actually is

...missing sweet potatoes, broccoli, and soysauges

...realizing that my eating habits changed in a way no one but me notices

...deep cleaning my room an throwing away half of the things I kept "just in case"

...thinking I see a friend, but then realizing that they live on the other side of the planet

...making sure to close my mouth or else I'll get a free bug snack

...enjoying wooden floors

...

Coming home is a lot more than just coming home. It's all the little things, the way the toaster is in a different place, the way I still know where everything is, the way everything changed but nothing changed.

Hey!

This blogpost is about my journey from Bend, Oregon to Magden, Switzerland.

Enjoy!

Sunday, June 25, 2017

Sunday morning I said goodbye to my best friend, Olivia, and packed up the rest of all my belongings I wanted to take home. My suitcase was at 50 lbs, the maximum weight we are allowed to take on the airplane. Packed with a big suitcase, my carry on, and school backpack we left Bend around 12:30 and stopped 30 minutes later in Sisters so Ani and I could finally take a picture (or more like 20 pictures on 5 phones) in front of the Sisters sign, since we look sooooo much alike... :D After that we continued driving to Suttle Lake where we ate a late lunch. After spending about an hour there we drove to Eugene where all the AFS exchange students from the Pacific Cascades Area met up and said goodbye to their families :((. It was sad and after that we had to go through an orientation which no one really wanted to do. but that's AFS, always trying to prepare us in the best way possible for our future adventure, whether it is going to a new home or going back to your old home. After this orientation and dinner we waited some more hours in Eugene and finally left at 10:30 in a charter bus.

Monday June 26, 2017

The bus took us to Seattle where we got to at about 3:30am and then had to wait until we could check in. We waited in a big conference room where some of us slept, played games, talked, cried, ate, or just waited. At 7:00 I think the first group of students left the room and first goodbyes had to be said. I knew some people in the first few groups, but I'd say I was the first one of my group to leave at 9:30am. Saying goodbye was somehow weird, because it just didn't feel real and we were all very very tired. I left my friends and sis but then also knew people in the group I was traveling with, we were mostly the same kids that flew to the US together last August. After the check in (where they at first couldn't find my and 2 other kids' boarding passes because of some data overload when booking the tickets) we waited for about 90 minutes in the airport where we just kinda talked about our experiences which where totally different but then somehow also the same. Around 12.30 the boarding began and sometime later we were finally in the airplane, ready to leave. It was a weird feeling to know that this is the end of this adventure, it's like the very last chapter in an amazing book that you just don't want to end, but then you're also very excited for the end to see what else is going to happen now or maybe in a future book. Makes sense? I think you can only truly understand this feeling if you have ever left home to go to another home. Anyway, I spent the flight watching movies and sleeping and suddenly we landed in Paris.

Tuesday June 27, 2017

Because of the 10 hour flight and 9 hour time difference it was already Tuesday when we got to Paris. In Paris we had a 4 hour layover and thought we might be able to leave the airport for an hour or two, just to get some fresh air. The 3 of us had PreCheck so we would've been back in the airport pretty quickly, that was the only reason we even considered doing it. BUT then there was a huuuuuug line to exit the airport so it probably would have taken us more than an hour to get out of the airport so we didn't leave and just waited 3 hours at our gate. The waiting actually wasn't too bad and at 12:30 we started boarding our airplane to Zürich. The guy I sat next to on the previous flight and also on the flights last August was still next to me on this flight but on the other side of me was a Rumanian (?) guy who basically was traveling the world at the moment, but now getting ready for a job interview in Switzerland! We had a really nice chat and it was fun getting to know him. After about 50 minutes in this airplane we already touched Swiss ground and we felt even more weird and somehow nervous and excited at the same time to see our Swiss families. We were lucky and our bags were one of the first ones to come out so we could go to the exit area where we saw our families! Finally! I don't really know how to describe the feeling, but it felt pretty awesome to see my Swiss Mama again. <3 After saying hello to my family we drove home and I fell asleep in the car for about an hour. I also realized how small Switzerland really is!!!!! I always knew it was small but now I really realize it, but I love the way it is. Dinner was Chicken Curry and Rice and Samosas, food I haven't had in a year. Not the typical Swiss food I'd say, but it's the typical Mama food for me. After dinner we watched a movie and then I went straight to bed without even thinking of unpacking my suitcase.

Wednesday June 28, 2017

Wednesday wasn't really part of my journey coming home, but my sister was in her 9th grade camp and returned so we went to pick her up at the train station and gosh she grew like a meter when I was gone!!! Okay not that much, but she's definitely way taller than she was before. I was expecting my little sister but now she's not that little anymore, still shorter than me though...

That was it for the first post entirely in English and I hope whoever is reading this enjoyed it. I don't really know how interesting it is to read about travels, but it's just a big part of my exchange year. This travel back home was somehow the last page of my exchange year book, but there will be many sequels I hope!

Enjoy life and laugh lots,

Chantal :)

​Hey!

Same message in English, so if you read the text above there's no reason for you to read this. Anyway, I'm switching this Blog to English so my international Family and Friends can read it. It was intended for my Swiss family and friends to keep up with my life, but now I'm back in Switzerland so there's no need for that anymore. Now I want you to be able to follow my life in Switzerland and get to know my other home, family, and friends. 

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you will enjoy my further posts,

enjoy life and laugh lots,

In de letzte 2 Wuche han ich öbbe jede 2. Tag mit de Lotta (Finnland) verbrocht, will sie au kei Schuel me gha het und au nid umefahre chan, sprich mir sind uf unsere Velos in Bend umegfahre. Unseri Abentür sind meistens ziemlich eifach gsi wie Velo fahre und Ässe aber mir sind au zude Humane Society (Tierheim in Bend) gange und händ Katze gstriichlet oder sind ufem Fluss paddleboarded und händ ufem Paddleboard g'ässe. :) Öbbis wo nie het dörfe fähle ich FroYo, mir sind gfühlti 10x zu Cuppa Yo gange in de letzte 2 Wuche...uuuups

Going Away Party 17. Juni 2017

Am Sunntig isch au Father's Day gsi und drum simmer imene Raft 'Big Eddy' abegange. Big Eddy isch e Stell im Fluss wos Rapids (Schnälle? Die Dinger wos Felse im Wasser het und s Wasser so schümt und so...) het und me nass wird wenn me durab goht. Mir (Steve, Anna, Evan, Katherine (Evan's besti Fründin), und Mike (Katherine's dad)) sind also imene Raft durab und s isch mega cool gsi.

Hey!

In däm Blogpost gohts um Graduation, jap die typischi Graduation wo me amigs in de Film gseht... Viel Spass bim Läse!

Vor de richtige Graduation hämmer 3 Üebigs-graduations gha, also sozusage Probe wo mer güebt händ, wo mir stoh müend, wo ahnelaufe, wenn umdreie, ahnesitze, wie als Reihe gliichziitig ufzstoh, etc. Mir händ das alles also 3x in de Schuel gmacht und denne am Fritig s Graduation Assembly gha. Dört simmer in unsere Cap & Gown ind Aula gloffe und alli wo e Stipendium oder Teilstipendium becho händ sind ufd Bühni gruefe worde. S Assembly isch ziemlich lang und au leider langwiilig gsi, wenn me nid sälber e Stipendium becho het.

Am Samstig, 10. Juni, isch denne die richtigi Graduation gsi, in Redmond. Mir händ am Viertel ab 12i bide Schuel sii müesse und sind denne es letzts Mol in de Schuelbüs nach Redmond gfahre. Mir sind e Karavane vo 8 Schuelbüs gsi mit je 2 Polizeiauto vorne und hindedra und 2 Polizeimotorräder. S isch ziemlich cool gsi usem Fänster z luege wie alli normale Autofahrer uns entweder komisch agluegt oder zuegwunke händ. Nach öbbe 30 Minute simmer in Redmond acho und händ denne dört parkiert und sind ind "Arena" gange. Dört hämmer so obe bide Sitzplätz gwartet und d Eltere und wär auch immer sust no dört gsi isch sind sozusage uf de andere Siite gsi und vor uns isch e Bildschirm gsi, sodass sie uns nid so ganz gseh händ. Nacheme Ziitli warte het d Band und s Orchester au scho die typischi Graduation Musik gspilt und mir sind d Stäge abe zu unsere Sitz gloffe und nach de Nationalhymne abgsässe. Blablabla vom Direktor, Student Speaker, und andere Lüt und denne het au ändlich die richtigi Zeremonie agfange. S isch alphabetisch gsi und ich bin chli vor de Hälfti dra gsi. Wie das genau usgseh het gsehnder im Video woni aghänkt han. Nachdem alli gloffe sind und s Diploma becho händ hets no paar Abschlusswort gäh und mir händ natürlich au d Cap ind Luft gworfe wie mes in de Film gseht. Nach däm isches au scho fertig gsi und mir händ chönne Föteli mache, Lüt tschüss sage, d Familie finde und denne de Wäg usem Parkplatz wo ziemlich voll gsi isch finde.

Mir sind denne mit de Olivia go z'Nacht ässe und denne isch de Tag au scho verbi gsi. Graduation isch mega cool gsi und ich bin froh, dass ich das han chönne erläbe. :)

Ich hoff, de Post isch interessant gsi zum läse, au wenn er öbbe 3 1/2 Wuche z spot isch und ich jetzt scho wieder zrugg in de Schwiiz bin. Anyway, ich probier jetzt au no über die letzte paar Wuche z schriebe und das ufzhole damit ihr ufem aktuellste Stand sind.

Gniesseds Läbe und lached vill,

Chantal :)
