One amazing journey is over, another starts!

Hey! Ages since you heard from me, sorry about that... seriously, we have had one test each day this week ... now that's finally over :) can't complain about that! :D

Well anyways ... last Saturday was a very special day for me, sad but also one of the best days of my life also! All of my top ten best days have been with EF so... well, there was the reunion! :) that I basically have been waiting for since I came home from NY! :)

It was amazing seeing Morten again as always, the best courseleader ever! I really can't explain how lucky I've been who got to spend the last three summers with him... I seriously feel honoured about it! :) - and 11 out of 13 of the 4- weeks - New York gang came too! That was amazing! And lastly but also fantastic was that MICHAEL CAME!!!! The centre manager from Long beach! I was sooooo undesirably happy to see him! Really! Been waiting for that for a year now! Words can't describe how fantastic that made my last day with EF Language Travels the best I could ever ask for!

Thank you everyone, for making this the best two year of my life, the best three summers of my life! I love you!

However and luckily, this is not my last time with EF! I'll, as I'd mentioned, be going for three months with EF language Courses to San Diego next year and also to EF berlin!! Can't wait for that! In fact, today there's exactly one year till I'm leaving San Diego ; ;( already feeling sad about that haha) and go to EF berlin (happy about that) haha!!

So I've got a lot of adventures in front of me! Can't wait for that!!

Love, Camilla :)

Yes Morten you're the number one ... forever and ever!

Like a rock in my chest but don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened ❤

Hey guys!

Where have I been? Well... now I think I can be able to blog about my two last days ... I've just been so sad I haven't been able to ... you know ... it's been awful leaving the two pervious years as well, but this was my absolute last time and saying goodbye to for example morten, that's been a huge part of my life since 2015, Robert, Kyle and not knowing when I'm going to see them again, that's kinda unbearable...

but it's as Juri once said: don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened... :)

The two last days were like this:

First graduation, where I held a speech and completely totally bursted into tears ... hahah earlier on, we have had like three or four days left when there's graduation... but here it was the absolute last thing we did ... well... It was nice tho! :) and then we have morten a little gift from the 13 minions that we are haha :)

Then we went to see Times Square by night ❤ and after that it was only hugging, crying and small message writing ... and I got a hoodie saying "hello hello hello EF celebrating 50 years". That he got right before the summer of 2015... and that's all the three summers we've been traveling together .... god I cried!

And the day after, we had to check out if our rooms by 8.30 and then we placed it in the dancing room and no one wanted to go out the door haha ... five hours later ... 13.45 ... when the bus came to pic us up... tears all over after yet another best summer ever! Tears all over ... Robert, morten, Hugo, the nurse , Kyle, Jojo ... I can continue forever ....

and then when we came to Newark Liberty International i had to say goodbye to Kyle ... not forever i hope ... but for a very long time.. and that's probably some of the worst things I've done in my life... then we landed in Oslo 20 minutes before we we're going to ... :) I didn't want that plane ride to end .. im going to see that gang at the reunion ... can't wait for that! But I still miss them!

Hoping some of the locals will come too!!!

- the only bad thing about EF is that it always come to an end... such an indescribable summer!

Thank you! :) love you!

- see you soon!

Love, Camilla

Only one full day left of this paradise:(

Heyy guys!

Now I'm sitting all sweaty in the gym with a basketball under my knees, relaxing my feet. I have seriously started liking basketball while being here! Haha! But there's one very sad thing and that is that we're going back to Norway on Saturday... I'm going to freaking cry my eyes out....

anyways ... I'll try not to think about that now ... because we've still got time left and that, I have planned to enjoy fully and completely!! :)

So since the last time you heard from me, there's been a lot of cool stuff happening: prom, shopping, NY soho and so on :)

Yesterday's prom was really really amazing!! And the decoration was so the best!! Loved the atmosphere! Hahah

Today, the others are at Six Flags, but I didn't want to spend my language travel by throwing up haha so I stayed here at campus just chilling :) so what I've been doing today is basically started packing, gone to ACME, the store and now played some basket :) next on the schedule is to write the graduation speech that I'm going to hold tomorrow, or if not write at least structure it and hoping it'll be good! :) dinner and chill Haha see you!

Amazing things happening

Heyy!

There's been a while since I blogged now, but that's just because I haven't had the time because there's been so much going on! On Friday, there was the graduation for the ones that are staying only three weeks... and then we went to see Times Square at night and then on Saturday we went to see the 9/11 memorial, Wall Street and Brooklyn Bridge! That was completely amazing! The only awful thing that day was that we had to say goodbye to the three - weekers :( god I cried :( and then the AMAZING activity leader from last year, Greg stopped by!! Omg I really had missed him so much!! And I do miss him now :) but so grateful that he came! Yesterday I played basket again and we went to NYC again :)

There's only five days left :(( couldn't be more sad about that... but it's not over yet and every second and every day will be enjoyed till the and and to the fullest! I refuse to realize that! That awful fact ...

now there was school and lunch to! And we got to keep Hugo!!!! Yeyyy!!

And now we are goi g to a mall! Still living in my dream! Still living in my EF bubble!

See you!

<3333

Wow! What a day!

Check!!

Yesterday was the last excursion that I'm going to this year... that's too sad, but there's still over one week left here at the east coast paradise! Luckily! Every day and every second is going to be enjoyed! :)

Anyway! Yesterday was amazing! At 8.30 we met up in the lobby and headed to NYC, where we got to see both the Statue of Liberty (yeah we went off the boat and on the Liberty island)

One "have to do before I die" - experience done! Wow! It was massive, unforgettable and magic! The funny thing is that it didn't look that massive from a distance, but the closer you came, the he greater it was! I'm still amazed haha! - that was actually the second thing that was on our schedule of yesterday. The first thing we did, was going on top of the Empire State (!!!) building! That was .... I don't have words! That was staggering! I all of yesterday was like: am I dreaming right now? And all of you amazing people just made it awesome! You made it a day worth to remember!

The only thing that wasn't that cool was that when we were to enter the elevator that was going to take us to the top of the Empire State (which was super cool - because they played a video of how it possibly was build while going upwards), we (Morten, Martin and I) took a professional picture that was going to show the Empire State in the background, and I got to see the picture when we were headed down again and I was offered to buy it, but that picture cost $25! And I think we had just as amazing pictures on top of the real Empire State ;) so I didn't buy it. Now I kinda regret that a little hahah... well... I might find it on the internet!

And then, it's a bit funny, because it's weird how a bus ride can take everything from Unser 15 minutes from campus to NYC or the opposite way around or almost a whole tree hours, depending on the traffic! When we were at broadway, we had the high way to ourselves, while we now spent one hour just from the Empire State to the beginning of the Central Park! Haha so to be precise, we spent exactly two hours and 45 minutes back home last night ... lol.. but good music, having two seats for myself AND closed eyes, and a relaxing mode makes wonders! Hahah I actually think it was kinda chill :p people might think I am crazy hahah ... but... and, furthermore, two weeks ago when we went to NYC for the first time, we actually spent exactly three hours because of no motion at all... :p so we were one quarter faster now than then hehe :)

But now, over to a sadder part: tomorrow there will be a lot of groups of ITL 1 that will leave, because of their stay being over. The ones that stayed for only three weeks.. Italian, danish and Martin's group of Norwegian ... luckily not me... but the campus IS going to feel emptier without them... but then it will go so fast until it's our turn :( bah... I'll just not think about that... because I'm really going to enjoy this last week! There will be so much fun happening! - anyways , we'll be attending the other groups graduation and tonight will be going back to Times Square and experience NYC by night! I'm so looking forward to that! Because the "bad" thing about being here... hahah is that graduation is the last full day, which means I'm going to REALLY REALLY cry my eyes out... :( in LB there was like five days left when there was graduation so... but I gotta survive ... promise that haha... and as I said, there's one whole week left! And I'm going to enjoy that as if it was the last week of my life haha... :p because I'm still in my EF bubble, im still living in a dream... and that's going to last for a little bit more than a week! :)

- Love Camilla

My course leader is basically a mix between the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State! He's almost as tall haha

Only ten days left :( - Enjoy every second and every day that's left! :D

Hey guys!

Now there's a while since you heard from me, but the last couple of days has been amazing just like everything here with EF thornwood. Now I'm sitting on the grass outside of the school building, enjoying the heat and waiting for class to start! Well, there's been a lot going on!

On Monday, we had a bonfire party and I before that, I just laid town in the grass and chilled, and then it suddenly started raining like TONS! It was POURING DOWN like seriously hahah there were streams of water and the heaven fell down... however, we just continued partying under some tarpaulins... but that only lasted for some few minutes .... it was actually kinda fun! Lol.

Yesterday, we had no school, but what we did was going to Manhattan and did some shopping and then we went to BROADWAY !!! And saw WICKED!! Omg! They were SO extremely talented! Wow! That was quite another experience than going to a Theater in Norway haha... the sounds ... the effects ... everything... wow! What a musical!

And today we started out with lounge, then I had to say goodbye ( :(((( ) to my dear friend and such a star, Margaret, who was the activities Manager, until now before she goes back to Cali, Sacramento, her hometown, to pack before going to New Castle to doing a school program there. That was not easy. But now there's school... and tomorrow back to manhattan! See you!

- love, Camilla

High as a kite!!!

Okay! Where should i start???

BOSTON! The Boston weekend! (San Francisco, you've got company) BECAUSE this weekend is from now on placed as one of the best weekends of my life!! I mean EVERYTHING was fantastic, everything was special, everything is going to be remembered throughout a lifetime! I'm sitting here in the lounge up in second floor shaking because I'm high as a kite because everything was fabulous! Haha - from the Quincy Market to Harvard to the guided tour to the Boston boat party, to the 4D cinema thing we did today! At the science museum! Well, now I can start telling what we did! Haha!

On Friday we went here from campus at 8.30 am and then there was a three hours long bus ride. Then we went directly from campus to Harvard University (!!!) but it was Ewing super much.. but that really didn't matter... I got some amazing pictures anyways... and it was so hot that it really didn't do anything to be a bit wet.. then we went shopping g at Quincy market where me, Louise and Margrethe went eating at a super cozy American cafe ish thing called Quincy's Place, then we went to the hotel, which was super nice and contained a Starbucks (!!) haha, me and Margrethe ended up with two Danish girls at our room that were nice!

Then yesterday was nothing but perfect! I couldn't asked for anything better! The EF Boston trip is SO worth the money!! :) we started out with breakfast at the hotel at 7.30 as usual, then at 8.30 we had to meet in the resection to get on our bus that was going to take us on a guided tour around in Boston. Then we picked up the coolest guide ever! His guiding was the best I've ever experienced! He was SO funny! So cool! Norman, loved him! He shoved us around while telling us about the history of the city in America where it all started , with the Boston massacre and the Boston tea party (that really wasn't a tea party) hahah. Then we went to a monument place a TAAAAL monument thing with 294 steps in it to come to the top, I really though I wasn't going to be able to climb that one, but I did! :D Thor feeling of personal Victory was amazing! Then there was a skywalk thing with an amaaaaazing view and then back to Quincy Market, and dinner at Hard Rock Cafe Boston before there was one of the best parties of my life at a boat, an EF cruise, best music, best atmosphere , best EVERYTHING!

Before we went to bed and arrived at the hotel at 23.00.

Then today there was breakfast again and then we went to the Museum of Science!! There, there was a 4D movie Theater showing a science program! Wow! That was sooooo cool! Never seen such a great thing before!

Then we went back to campus... with a hyped Camilla because of here just having the time of her life!

- love, an Excited Camilla

Pie in the Face and happy birthday USA!!!

Hey yo guys!

First of all, HAPPY 4th OF JULY! Happy birthday USA!

Yesterday we had such a chill day!! School was first thing in the morning, where we had the funniest task ever! We made a video that we called "badass basketball player", then after school, we had a chill out in the lounge, and I went with Katharina to Rosehill, the Acmi- store and she bought stuff, then there was dinner and then there was a carnival party at the fields behind the school! Haha, that was soooo completely fun! We had different games, and I won the bottle race game where we were going to have a stocking on our head with a tennis ball inside it and knocking down as many bottles as possible while running Hahahah ... I won that lol.. and in the end some of the leaders were thrown a Pie in their face by some students ... I would never be able to do that, I would have felt so mean!! But it was fun to watch though lol :) Morten, Marisa and Andy were pied hahah

Today there's the independence day so that's equal no school. Soooo we got to sleep looong, I slept until 9.30 and then there was BBQ and the cafeteria was decorated with American flags all over!loved it! And also I got some taiwanischen cookies from a Taiwan friend of mine that arrived two days ago! Loved them!

Then there was water wars and I got totally socked! Hahah.

Now we are waiting to go to a place called Terrytown to watch the fireworks 💥 And I completely can't wait!!!

Happy love from me!!
