Skal ikke ta på meg æren for å ha skrevet det som står under her, for det har jeg altså ikke gjort. Annet enn at jeg har fikset litt på rettskrivningen, da teksten bar et tydelig preg av at forfatteren ikke hadde engelsk som førstespråk, er det ikke mine ord. Men det kunne det like så gjerne vært.  Jeg kom over denne på facebook, og mye av det stemmer veldig godt med tanker man gjør seg når man er en utvekslingselev i et fremmed land i et helt år.

How do you know what a dream is, if you have never accomplished one? How do you know what an adventure is if you never took part in one?
How do you know what anguish is, if you never said goodbye to your family and friends with your eyes full of tears?

How do you know what diversity is if you have never lived under the same roof as people from all over the world?
How do you know what tolerance is, if you have never had to get used to something different even when you didn't like it?
How do you know what is to be helpless, if you never wanted to hug someone and had a computer screen to prevent you from doing it?
How do you know what is distance, if you have never looked at a map and said ?I am so far away?
How do you know what the meaning of a language is, if you have never had to learn a new one to make friends?
How do you know what an opportunity is, if you have never caught one?
How do you know what pride is, if you have never experienced it for yourself when realizing how much you have accomplished?
How do you know what it means to seize the day, if you have never seen the time run by so fast?
How do you know what a friend is, if the circumstances never showed you the true ones?
How do you know what a family is, if you have never had one that supported you unconditionally?
How do you know what borders are, if you have never crossed yours to see what is on the other side.
How do you know what imagination is, if you never thought about the moment when you would go back home
