I have the best host family in the world


My name is Tereza and I am an exchange student from Slovakia.

It has already been almost three months since I came to the USA. I have the best host family in the world. We live on a huge farm with horses and a bunch of the other animals. I could not wish for a better home.

I had wanted to be able to ride horses here because I am riding all my life. I have already been at a horse show where I won three first places and grand champion. I am looking forward to the next shows.

I would like to write a few lines about two favorite trips I have done so far. The day after my arrival, we flew to Florida for two weeks. We drove from Fort Lauderdale to Miami and then to Key West. I did parasailing for the first time. On the way back to Miami we stopped in the Everglades. We drove an air-boat and saw wild alligators. This vacation was so much fun and absolutely awesome. I have unforgettable memories. I got closer with my family and fell in love with them.

Last weekend, I went on an ICES trip to Niagara Falls. My host sister went too. I met students from many countries (also from Slovakia) and made very good friendships. The Niagara Falls are wonderful and because we did a boat ride – Maid of the Mist, we were very close and saw them also from Canadian side.

I cannot wait what the rest of my stay in the USA brings me!
