Bringing the learning home (Australian Learning & Teaching Council)

Exchange gave me not just an experience… but a home.

So I’m going back soon, however it I don’t feel like I’m leaving. I know I’m leaving, however it just feels like everyday I’m just going keep waking up in America and go about my normal life just as I have done for the past 11 months. It’s funny I remember a similar feeling when I was leaving Australia. However I know when reality kicks in I’m going to miss this place so much. It’s turned into a home, I don’t want to leave. This is the best thing I have done with my life and I will recommend exchange to anyone, but I’ll tell you the one negative about it… you have to come back 

    This post really reinforces what you said in an earlier post – no way did you intend to stay beyond that first semester – and now you don’t want to come home at all! What a great testament to exchange!

    I will be so interested to hear how you cope with being back in Oz – let us know. Are you facing it with trepidation ( like Luke and Tilly about to start their 25 hour bus trip to Prague – check out the photo!) or maybe you are just resigned to leaving now… Do keep blogging and sharing your thoughts on re-entry
