    Ok so this morning I did quite a bit of revision, and was then invited to go out for a walk around town, being such a nice day I decided to say yes and headed out. Even though I have been here quite a few weeks now there are still places in town that I have not explored including quite a few big shopping centers around the edge of town.

    Today we started in the center of town after walking in (town is maybe a 30 minute walk from the dorms) and started looking in different shops. Its amazing how big town here really is as the main street goes on for what feels at least a mile! We found a shop that just sells chocolates and I just had to get some pictures for you 🙂

    Paw PrintsThese seemed to lead to the steel arena which is where they have the ice hockey so we assume they were from the teams mascot…

I guess its like England in that it depends where you look as to the prices as some shops are more expensive than others. In general though food here is a lot cheaper than the UK, though there are more independant supermarkets remaining than in the UK which I absolutely love (though town has 2 Tescos).

    My ankle has been pretty sore today so I am wondering if I should take a day off walking to give it time to rest and heal. Anyways I’ve got to get back to revision now so will update you again tommorow!
