So, this is my 11th week here. I've got through the beginning and I already made a lot of memories with the family I'm staying with, the kids I'm taking care of, and the friends I have here. I faced a lot of challenges, fought homesickness, learnt new things and developed some of my skills. For example, I just finished the level A2 course of Dutch language. The thing that I still find hard to get used to is the weather - I don't think I'll ever be friends with so much rain, especially because I'm on the bicycle for at least an hour every day. However, leaving the comfort zone is fun!
