Hey I’m Nico and i’m from Hamburg in Germany.At first i will tell you something about my home and how did it start. A few words about my home Hamburg. Hamburg is a ver big city with two million people. Hamburg is in north part of Germany it is the second biggest in the country. We have a lot nice places and we have the second biggest harbor in Europe. The biggest love in Hamburg is soccer because we have two clubs in Hamburg and every person is fan of one. When you want to see the pretties city of the world then you have to go to Hamburg. My start to Canada began with a other great city Toronto. My first two days of my adventure started with sightseeing in Toronto. The three days in Toronto were awesome. After the three days began my real adventure in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia. But but the main think is that i will talk about what i thought before i came and what i think now.
My view about Canada was actually pretty good. I heard a lot stuff about this country and i saw a lot but i will specialist this a little bit more. Lets start with the school. I thought about the Canadian school that they were not so far as the germans in the learn stuff and that they do more like fun activities. A main point in the school are the teachers and view about them was that they are all friendly and helpful.The last think about school is the school sport.We have no High School teams in Germany. My guess was that almost the whole school is watching the games of every sport and that it is all so big with cheerleaders and this stuff.I was very exited about that.
The next point were the people in Canada. I heard a lot about people in Canada that they are crazy but good crazy. Everybody said that the people there are very helpful and that everybody respect everybody. It sound ridiculous for me that almost everybody loves everybody it is hard to belief for a guy from a two million city. And then i read in the internet that some people let the door every time unlocked that was the point where are said they are completely crazy.
My biggest worry was about the sport because i life for soccer it is my love. And the boy that loves soccer goes now in the best hockey country. I can't even skate. My guess was that all guys can skate here and most of them play hockey and that they are all very good. My main worry was about soccer. The problem was that i thought about during Germany won the world championship. My view about soccer in Canada was not that good at this moment.
A important point why i choose Canada was the nature. The view in my head was amazing.The big mountains with snow on it and in the front the ocean. I though i will see in Canada bears and moose and all the typical Canadian animals. I was scared about what i heard about how cold it is but i was exited about the snow.The last point is the food. I saw a lot about the US food but not about the Canadian. I connected this then and all what i saw what i saw was just fast food everywhere. I thought i will have not a really good chance to go away from this stuff. It is not a really big problem for me because i do a lot sport so i can eat it sometimes. When i knew that i come to Nova Scotia did i read a little bit about it what they eat there. I what i read about was that they eat a lot fish and lobster. That was no problem either because i like fish.
Now i will tell you about how is it after almost a half year. The school is here most of the time pretty good . I got a very good . The teachers are good but i like not all teacher that is i think normal for a student. They help me a lot . Happen at the begin were i was pretty shy were they a good help.The best teacher is Rob Allen. Important was that i was at the begin at the High School soccer team because ei met great guys there and i found very good friends there it was lots fun. A negative point at the school is that you have every time the same subjects everyday. I like it better when you have day some different subjects it makes not so boring. I’m most impress about the people here. At first my family and i think the best host family of the world. They make me feel home. I’m so thankful that i can life with this guys. A other big part of my life now are my fiends here. I found very good friends it is like that i know them the whole time of my life. In Germany i had not that much time for my friends because of school and sport but here is it different if you have no school stuff to do you will your friends and do something with them. Nick ,Keegan ,Seamus and Austin are crazy kind of group but i’m glad to be a part now of this group. The perfect thing is that all of them love soccer. My family and my friend are nice but even the guys with them you have no contact are very nice and friendly. The people here are amazing and the most of this people love hockey. Canada and Hockey is like Germany and soccer it is just love . The biggest decision is for a east Canadian Toronto or Montreal. My decision i non of this cubs i’m just for my school team . It is doesn't madder if Toronto or Montreal when Team Canada plays are all together. Not that bad then i though are they in soccer . I found that our soccer team was not that bad for a Canadian team. My guess is that soccer is getting bigger in the next years.
If you are not feeling like to play hockey or soccer than you can still go in the gym. On first day at the gym i thought that i’m at the wrong place because they were all guys with arms like canons.
Before i talk about talk about i talk about the next topic i want to say that i’m actually a city boy but maybe it changed a little bit. The next topic is nature. I came here at the night so it was dark . When i woke up i thought i dreaming. The water at front of my house and small mountains in the background. When you have to describe the Canadian nature then you have just to words awesome and incredible. I love to drive with the four wheelers and snowmobiles in the mountains it is so much fun and it looks all so good. The nature is like a big adventure for me. For example i stand with three friend in a cabin it was so exiting. But have still not seen the animals and i’m a little bit disappointed about the snow we have just german wether here rain and windy.
My best guess was at the food point. It is not like in the states how i thought it but it is kinda like this . You have no chance not one time per week to go not to a fast food restaurant. The reason for this is that you you have one street and there are 5 -6 restaurants. The famous of these are the Canadian fast food company Tim Hortons and DQ. Somebody told me when you wanna be a real Canadian than you have to go sometimes to Tim Hortons.
My conclusion is that Nova Scotia is a beautiful part of Canada is. It is like my second home . Here are great people they are proud of there country and proud of team Canada. The Canadians love the nature and there snowmobiles. I will everybody tell what Canada for a awesome country is. I’m glad that i’m here and that i met so great guy here. I’m exited for the next 6 month. It is gonna be a big moment when my parents come to pick me up and i can show them how i lived here.
