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.

Pack for a year

To pack for a whole year might feel like a tough task. But it is actually not as hard as it sounds. There are though some things you should think about before you start.

Culture shock

Culture shock is very common amongst exchange students. You need to be aware that some things are going to be really different from what you are used to in your home country. You will need to accept this.

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.
