I’m only three weeks away from leaving the UK and ending my Erasmus-exchange experience. The feeling I had in January about leaving my family and friends is coming back, as I’m now leaving the beautiful friendships I built here. Plymouth is a city that will always be in my heart.
Out of sight, not out of mind
Waking up to the sound of seagulls, having walks down the Plymouth Hoe and late night chats with my housemates. I will cherish the amazing memories for the rest of my life. I will miss everything I experienced here, even the lectures. They were so different compared to the Belgian ones, but yet so interesting.
Improving in language
I’ve learned a lot and it made me wiser, both the educational part as the language part. My friends noticed that my English improved and to be honest, I can feel it as well. Where I was nervous to start a conversation because I was scared to fail the language, I’m now much more confident and sometimes when I talk to my family through the phone, I tend to talk in English.
It’s been an eventful semester. Lots of laughs, tears and friendships. I met so many people and discovered a lot. Thanks to everyone who made this experience a time I won’t forget. My friends, my lecturers and most of all my mom, who supported me to go on an exchange.
