When you are about to leave your home country and plane takes off
When you show up for the Freshers Party.
When you receive your first mail from home
When the mail makes you feel homesick
When your friends come over to cheer you up!
When you finally figure out the public transportation system in your country of study
When you successfully order in the local language for the first time
When your friends from home ask you whether you’re spending way too much money
When you get invited for your first meal by your host family
When you find out none of the classes you’re taking will count towards graduation
When you’re not aware of a local holiday and show up to class
When a teacher understands you are not here just for study
When a club doesn’t charge you to use the washrooms
When you attend the class next day after partying till late hours
When someone doesn't smell of cigarettes and alcohol after coming back from the party
When nothing is open on Sundays
When your classmate tries to speak to you in the native language
When someone reminds you that you have just one week left before you return home
When it is time to say goodbyes…
When your friends at home ask you to describe your experience in just 3 words
