Inside Linfield - Semester/Year Abroad

Semester abroad in Germany

"Fifteen days into your life abroad you find yourself sitting in the kitchen planning a trip to another country with 10 people whose names you're still trying to remember.  Quickly a month has passed. The people who were strangers baked you a cake on your birthday two days after meeting you, they greet you in the halls and around town and you find yourself looking at familiar faces when going to Mensa. Suddenly the countdown you have until you see your sister and your dog and your best friend is a sad reminder of the limited days left. You make plans to visit each other and you realize you're a much stronger person than you imagined." Emily Walker
