How are you all doing, it’s been a whole week since we last talked. And in a week a lot can happen right? So please tell me a little bit something from your life. You will hear a little big thing from my life, which I’ve been waiting to tell you ’til now.
In fact, I am off for a year.
I go on an exchange year, to a guest family who is so kind to give me a bed and food for a whole year and who lets me be a part of their life.
And this exchange year starts in pretty exactly a month, the 31. August. At that day, I’m going to leave my home country and I’ll fly to Canada.
That’s why I thought, it could be the time to tell you about it.
I’m going to live near Toronto, which excites me a lot! (any Canadiens here, by the way? I’d love to talk to you!!)
Maybe I should also quickly explain, why I chose to go to Canada. The reason is rather simple. Since ever actually, Canada left a very positive impression with me. I don’t even know exactly why, but I like the country, even if I never visited it yet. I just do. I also wanted to learn better English, not only because this is my international blogging language, but also because I sincerely love the language. I love to hear it, to write it, and of course to speak it.
My decision to go on an exchange year has kinda always been there, since I heard firstly that it was a thing. It sounded too exciting for me, to not do it. And choosing the country I’d go to, well to be honest, of course I thought a lot about it, tried to find pros and cons, but at the end, really, it’s the gut feeling that must be right. It has to feel good.
And I am very happy to go to Canada. It feels right for me.
Now, to be honest, I don’t know how blogging is going to work in Canada, especially the first weeks, I will probably have my head round other things than blogposts. Maybe. But I don’t really know. What I know, is that I have still a month (the whole of August) to continue to work on my blog and we’ll see later what happens then.
The more I think about it, the crazier it seems. I mean, Canada isn’t exactly near to where I live right now…
But the more I think about it, the more excited I get. It feels like my very own adventure, that nobody can take away from me. I will learn a lot, I will have fun, I will meet new people, make new friends, and along that journey I would love to take you guys with me!
Please feel free to ask questions, if you have some, I will do my best to answer them. But even to me this whole next year is full of unclarities and a lot to discover…
I’m out and about,
