After a very long 4 hour train ride I was patiently waiting to meet my homestay family. I had so many emotions that I didn’t even know how to feel. Even if I was feeling a lot of feelings I was very excited to meet my host-family and spending time with them. To be honest I was very nervous about how we were going to communicate with each other, I didn’t know if I was going to speak German or if we were going to be able to communicate at all. When we got off the train there was a lot of people and I didn’t know where to go and what to do, but I was very excited. A few minutes later a family of 3 came up to me and instantly I knew that, that was my family. I just had a very strong feeling that it was my family. I thought it was going to be hard to adapt to the family and if I was going to do something wrong, but they were very welcoming and very nice. We all sat down for dinner and had a very nice conversation even though we just met.

On the train to Niederalteich.
