Chloé, outbound to Denmark
Soooo I have been in Denmark for over a month now and I can't decide if time has gone extremely fast or has been sort of normal because I feel like I have been here my whole life. I have experienced so many different things, met incredible new people and all of a sudden- I'm the big sister! Maybe "big" isn't the most suitable word because my one younger brother is 14 years old and is 6 FEET TALL! I am 5ft 6in and I am 16! I'm the boss though. I really do love them more than anything and I don't even want to think about the day I have to say goodbye.
Being in Denmark has been surreal to say the least. I know I have been here a month already but I still catch myself thinking "oh.my.---" I am here! Whether it be while exploring the vast forests in Odense, during physics class at Esbjerg Gymnasium while I pretend I know exactly what's going on, or on the train after I have just spent time with other exchange students from all over the world. I am just amazed.
I wish I could sum up everything that has happened but I just can't because sometimes things can't be put into words. They have to be seen, experienced and if you could just step into my shoes and walk where I walk, and see what I see then you would understand. That's why I believe becoming an exchange student, especially with Rotary, is the best thing that could ever happen to anyone. There is always something to be learned in life no matter how high you climb.
Until next time,
