Hello Brighton

The last bit of my journey from Austria to Brighton started at Heathrow Airport. At the airport we were picked up by a transfer that brought us then to our host families in Brighton.


When I arrived at my host family's house I was really excited to meet the couple and the child. I had no clue how old they would be as I wasn't able to find them on any social media platforms. However I'm happy to stay at this family's house.


Sarah, Ian and Gracie May (8-year old) were so friendly in their welcome and showed me around the house. From the outside the house might seem a little bit too old but on the inside it looks just like any other modern house. 

The biggest surprise I experienced in my first couple of days in Brighton was how good the food was. I might be influenced by my bad experience from Canterbury in 2016 but I honestly didn't expect the host mother to be such a good cook.


I often spend my time after work with my host family and in the evenings I usually meet up with Annika, Andi, Dani, Stef and Jules at the beach with some snacks and drinks.


On 1st of July I started working at Digitool which is a marketing agency for cleaning businesses. Thankfully I didn't have any problems with finding my work place as it's located next to Brighton's main station.


So all in all there haven't been any troubles regarding host family and work place yet (and hopefully they won't occur).
