HALF A YEAR IN THE FOREIGN COUNTRY


I cannot believe I have spent half a year here. I sometimes feel scared of how fast everything is going. I wish I could stop the time and enjoy this adventure better, but unfortunately I can only give my best in every moment.

All that glitters is not gold. The most difficult thing has been saying goodbye to my family and friends. Then, you start to appreciate the little things like a coffee with them, or any nice memories. To miss small details and anecdotes that you would not miss so much if you were near them.It is necessary to accept that you are that friend who will not be there in the difficult moments for them. 

Since I left my country behind, I have lived good experience. Like everything in life, I have had good and bad situations. But from the bad you always learn. As it is said, what does not kill you makes you stronger.

 I have achieved to know myself better. Also, I have met great people. People that I will always remember and I hope they never forget me. I will take a bit of each of them on my return to my country. 

I have learned to accept uncertainty and not to know what I will do in the future. Not knowing where my place is, whether here or there. Taking risks and advantages of all situations. Being more confident and self-assured.

 Also, I have achieved new skills and competences like:  to improve my English level, greater ability with computer, to learn new language (Czech language), to write an Erasmus+ project, to learn a different culture… Everything is for a better future.  

I really think that all people should live abroad for a while and challenge themselves. To discover all they are able to do.

For all those who are far away from home: be as brave as until now. And for our people who are waiting for us at home: we are looking forward to seeing you.

For me this is one of the best experiences of my life and for now, I do not want to wake up from this dream.
