The San Francisco trip was one of the greatest experiences of my life!
I got to explore San Francisco for the first time and it was amazing! I even got to try things that I would never have imagined I would be doing in the near future. For example, when we went to Six Flags I went on some of the craziest rides but it was so much fun! I also rode cable cars for the first time while sightseeing in San Francisco. I got try food from some of the best restaurants in San Francisco and the food was delicious!
I was able to create a bond with the other exchanges students that I know will last forever. Everyone was so nice and inviting to each other. I was able to meet all the exchange students spread out all over America and learn about their culture. The bonds I made with some of the exchange students were so strong that I still talk to them even after the San Francisco trip! I loved meeting everyone there and making new friends while adventuring around San Francisco.
The bus ride there and back was so much fun! We watched movies on the bus and played games. At one point on the way home from the San Francisco, we played a game of guess the jelly bean! If I could go back and do it all again; I would. And the only thing I would change is making stronger bonds with the other exchange students! I would definitely recommend this for other exchange students!
This is a life changing trip!
