Life With a Host Family – An Excursion to Amish Country

His name was Norman, who was married to Mary White, who worked for the local church; they lived nearby campus in a cute little house surrounded by a decent neighborhood. I got to know them shortly after I returned from my Christmas break. First of all, I met Norman in a Chinese restaurant just across the Blair School of Music, which was part of the campus at Vanderbilt University and distinguished itself by an excellent reputation. We had a very nice conversation and I liked him at first glance discussing regarding a wide range of topics such as university, politics, and economics. I experienced numerous beneficial encounters with Norman which I still remember duet to their extraordinary character. My personal highlight turned out to be the unique excursion to the Amish people which is described as well in this article besides some selected events.

My First Footprints As an Exchange Student in the USA – Via New York to Nashville

The sky’s the limit. Time had come for me and another five companions to take off and head to a new world, longing to indulge in the unlimited possibilities supposed to arise sooner or later during our stay abroad. We happily and curiously departed from Munich on 22nd August, 1987 and flew with the former airline TWA to our first stopover New York, the city which according to popular belief – never sleeps. To love something is to give it room to grow. This was absolutely true for me, too, since I was able to stare – for the first time in my life – at the gigantic skyline of Manhattan that night from our hotel in Brooklyn.

Thanksgiving in New York

Thank God, my friend Mathew, whom I got to know at Vanderbilt University and who turned out to become one of best “buddies” nicely convinced me to join him and his family in the traditional “Thanksgiving Dinner” at their house in Long Island. I was really pleased to find a ‘refuge’ to go, since University life during any break happened to be fairly boring and a bit unattractive especially for a foreign student. Anyway, I made up my mind to be the host of Mathew for a couple of days, clearly anticipating the fun activities to be experienced around the breakfast, lunch, and dinner table.

How To Have the Time of Your Life Abroad!

This might seem like a given, but I have a few steps to having the time of your life while traveling. These steps are really the same no matter where you are, but you usually you do not take any of them into consideration when you are home. You feel safer being at home. When you are in a place that is unfamiliar you may become uncomfortable being yourself and it might become hard to have a good time. There are actually a lot of things to take into consideration. Things like your environment, people you are with along with the atmosphere. If you are at a club or bar at night you should be more cautious especially if you are alone. It can be just as much fun to travel alone as it is to travel with a friend but it depends a lot on your ability to be independent. If you need others for support and recognition you should probably invite a friend or two to go with you on your journey. Having a friend guarantees you a drinking buddy and partner in crime which could also be a bad thing.
