Today was finally “the” day. The moment when I could enter my room where I will stay for the upcoming 9 months. The residence of EF Eastbourne on St. Leonard Road. It looked clean, modern, and quite beautiful actually. When I came in Paula, no not my mom, but my Spanish roommate, was already there. She has already stayed with EF for a month and will leave next week. I am curious who from then on will be my roommate.
From Friday I am already in Eastbourne, together with my parents, brother and sister. We wandered around the city together, searched for a tennis park and different gyms, went to Beachy Head, and of course, we ate fish & chips. They left at one o’clock in the afternoon. So, from now on, it is my turn.
After I unpacked all my stuff, which almost took me 2 hours, I went into the centre to do some grocery shopping. Sainsbury’s is in the shopping centre, which is a walk of 5 minutes. There are even a Starbucks, Marc&Spencer, and a Primark in the shopping centre. I am kind of surprised because I didn’t know that Eastbourne was such a liveable city.
Tonight around 8 o’clock all the new students from the residence from EF Eastbourne will get a tour around the city and after that, we will go for a drink. Tomorrow morning I have to be in school at 8, all the 120 new students will have an introduction day. Tuesday, the real lessons will start. Oh, and by the way, school is like 3 minutes away from the residence.
I already love it here!
