My first week in Australia is just amazing! I live with a lovely host family and we do a lot of things together.
I saw the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House of Sydney when I arrived on Friday. I was too swimming in the sea with Zane, my host brother. It was a little cold but fun! We visited beautiful places!
I’ve been ice skating with Tiana, my host sister, and her friends and we went to the reptile park where we saw kangaroos, koalas, tassie devils, snakes...I saw too a whale in the sea!
I tested some Australia specialities like vegemite and I loved that! I haven't yet cooked for my family but I brought nougats and bergamotes from France and they loved that!
All is really different here and I just love Australia, everything is perfect. Thanks WEP and my host family for allowing me to live that!

I’ve been to the Mareeba Rodeo with my host family, Palm Cove and Yungaburra and I’ve tried a lot of new things for the first time!
I tried TimTams, chips sandwich, Vegemite (and I kind of liked it), Promite, Lamingtons, avocado toasts and, of course, Australian pasta!
I really love Australia and the kindness of Australians, they are always really nice when you have some problems and help you as much as they can.
