I was really nervous.
I didn’t know what to think of our host families, but can you blame me? I have never been with one, so our week in Ireland promised to be adventurous.
Before our week
I couldn’t image living with a host family. I didn’t even know what to expect, but what I did know was that we could have had good or bad luck. I asked some of my friends who already went to Ireland and got different answeres. Some told me that their families where really nice people while others told me that they lived with a rather unsuitable family. Because of the unfavorable opinions I couldn’t stop thinking about the “what if’s”. But my parents told me that I shouldn’t worry and should there be any problems, I can always talk to my group leader.
After our week
I have to admit, I thought it would be much more uncomfortable, living with an host family, but I really liked it. I have to admit, it didn’t feel like living with a family but more like living with friends you barely know but you can easily grow fond of. That surprised me, because for me, it was the first time to live for a whole week abroad without my parents. This experience showed me that living in an other country could be an opinion for me.
So, leave a comment and tell me your opinion! 🙂
