Saying goodbye is hard

saying goodbye

When you first arrive to your host country it might be hard to realize how hard it will be to say goodbye to your new home. As going back home gets closer you will be feeling a lot of different things. Of course you will be happy to go home and see your friends and family again, but at the same time you will feel so sad leaving your new friends.

Spend as much time as possible with your friends and host family during the last weeks and make the best out of it.

Longing back

But after a month you will be back to normal, with usual TV-nights or maybe a night with the computer. It is often then, when you are not doing anything, that you long back to your year as an exchange student.

On your way

It’s usually at the airport when it it hits you. “I’m going to be away for a whole year!” It might be scary at first.

Host family

Most host families do it because they are interested in learning about other countries and cultures. Be prepared to share yours!
