Six Steps To Overcoming Homesickness For Exchange Students

In my experience the "small things" can count as much as the absence of family and friends. The weather, the food, the colour of the sky and the trees, the sports you'd practice at home, the change of life patterns and rhythms, etc...

No way would I ever host an exchange student again. We got this girl from Austria who was into the occult. Long story short, she was out of my home by Halloween, not even making it six months, the time we originally has planned for her to stay. Creepy kid, creepy experience, never again.
