My name is Lisa Fuchs and I have such a great opportunity: I’m going to spend half a year (from November ’09 – June ’10) on beautiful Vancouver Island in Nanaimo, BC. I have just finished school this year, and decided to go abroad to take part in an internship at the Painted Turtle Guesthouse in Canada. I have the chance to: * Learn the Canadian culture (spending half a year in Canada brings you closer to their way of life) * Get to know Canada as the country where nearly everything seems to be possible (Did you know that there is a possibility to deep fry ice cream?) * Get to know many interesting people (and you meet a lot of nice people in the Guesthouse from all around the world. * Work with a great team * And finally, to improve my English language skills. Growing up in the very south of Germany (near Waldshut - just 2 kilometers from the boundary of Switzerland) I’m used to the mountains and nature. But Canada is much more beautiful than Germany, because of the wonderful combination of mountains, beaches and the ocean. It’s just fantastic! When you stand at Nanaimo’s harbour and see the deep blue ocean and the snow capped mountains it takes your breath away. It’s so awesome … I can’t believe that I’m here for 6 month!
