      No, all of them hosted me while I was a Rotary Exchange Student in the United States! I am currently living alone in France, for the first time. I really wanted to see what it is like.

    This is fabulous! My sister and family hosted the neatest kid from Denmark, he was so interesting. I think it’s incredibly brave to leave the surrounding that you know to venture off to unknown territory! I bet you have had some wonderful experiences! Great photos!!

    I never did a student exchange, but after college I had the great fortune to live with an Italian family through a series of wonderful experiences. It is something that has left me with unforgettable memories. In fact when I got married they were my home away from home and stepped right in to be sure everything was taken care properly 🙂

    Fantastic photo album. Glad you were shown a great time by your host families.

  13. Wow! I guess that really isn’t that short of a time with each host family, but they sure moved you around a lot. I remember wanting to apply for Rotary International’s exchange programs when I was younger, but was always tied down academically and financially. Awesome to hear about someone’s experiences on the program though!
    How do you like dorm living in France? You should try out living with a host family there as well. (I’m biased, I did host fam.) Two completely differences, esp. in France!

    that’s awesome that you have, not only one, but five families to call “home”. Do you miss them? I know I would.

    you’re lucky! I’m jealous on your life right now! :))

  16. That’s a beautiful post – lucky families!

    Lucky you! There’s nothing as good as a wonderful family 🙂

    We used to host students from all over the world when we lived in Edinburgh and greatly enjoyed the experiences. I thought it was lovely that you have remembered your host families so kindly and put them up in a post.
