Dominik Maurer – Allensbach

I’ve been in New Zealand for five and a half months now and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I went to school at Wellington High where I made many friends. I studied English, Calculus, Outdoor Education, ESOL, History and Geography. I also joined the second eleven Wellington High School soccer team. It was great fun playing in this team. I really loved the outdoor centre at French Pass and the boating we did. My host family lived in Hataitai, and I had 3 host brothers aged 19, 12 and 4. I made many friends here and I went on two trips, one around the North Island and one around the South Island. Both were unforgettable, but I like the North Island trip the most, it was awesome. We had great weather and a lot of fun, especially in Auckland, Tauranga, Paihia and Rotorua. I got to know many people from different countries, for example, China, Iraq, Germany, Brazil, Cambodia and New Zealand. I’m sure that I will miss New Zealand by the time I’m back in Germany. I had a great time thanks for everything Wellington High School. February 2008-July 2008
