22nd, Dec. A long long trip…

Follow-up to So fantastic the Christmas was! from Shuang's blog

Because of excitement, I got up at 5:30 in the early morning. Alough my train was at 9:24, I arrived at the station at only 8:10. I red the Metro when I was waiting. Becaust of the foggy weather, the first train was late for 10 mins. After I took the train from Coventry to Reading, I needed to take another train from Reading to Castle Cary. However, the latter train was delayed for nearly 1 hour, also because of the foggy weather. Luckily, I finally reached my destination. When I got off the train, I saw a middle-aged man and a young man walking towards me. And I knew, they were my host father and brother.
My host family have a farm in Somerset. They keep some cattle and sheep. They live in a very old house which has over one hundred years history.
They were all waiting for me to have lunch together, although it was nearly 3pm when I arrived home.
The first day I was busy learning how to use everything in the house. I tried my best to remember everything, but I always forgot. Before we went to bed, my host father told me their plan for the following day. The next day, Alex, my host brother, would guide me a touring.

So fantastic the Christmas was!

During this Christmas I went to a lacal family in Somerset. And I could tell it has been the most fantastic Christmas I have ever had. I wrote diaries every day there. Now I would like to tell stories during the six days trip.
