Renee - D9465 Outbound Exchange to Brazil 2016
The Adventures of Month One
So I'm officially into the start of my second month of my Brazilian exchange and it has all ready been one of the best adventures! The last moth has flown by and it only feels like yesterday I was leaving home and getting on the plane. I arrived on the 24th of January 2016 and ever since that day my life has changed in an amazing way.
My first host family have also been a massive help as they have done everything they can to help me settle in. They have kept me extremely busy the last month through showing me their exciting culture of new foods, new places and also by introducing me to their friends and family.
I was lucky enough to travel to many different places over the last month but the one day that has stood out the most was the day I was able to travel to the waterfall and cave. It was amazing and beautiful.
I have also met a range of other exchange students who have honestly been the nicest and friendliest people I have ever met. They have given me so much advice and have shown me around the town, not only did this help me settle in but it enabled me to also experience the same feelings in which they did when they arrived.
I have also started school in Brazil where I have met a bunch of amazing people who have helped me in so many different ways from the large language barrier to just keeping me company when I'm board or lonely. They are all experiencing the excitement and events of graduating high school which I also felt last year. Which is incredible to watch and here about.
This month has been truly incredible and I am so excited to see what adventures month two brings. I have already fallen completely in love with this amazing country in such a short period of time. Thank you to everyone who has made this month an experience that will stay with me for a life time!
