The best thing about doing an exchange is that you have the chance to meet lots of new people and experience a different way of life.
I know when I go home to Brazil I will miss being so close to the beach. My host family only lives ten minutes’ walk from the beach and I go there almost every day.
One big thing I noticed about New Zealand was the safety. I went to a public swimming pool with my host brother and everyone just left their things on the benches near the pool – nobody was worried about it.
I’ve had an amazing time in New Zealand and even had the chance to try bungy jumping during my trip to the South Island. It was awesome! You have to do it! I think this is one of the best exchanges you can do in the whole world.
