This story starts on 2016 July 3th, in Bordeaux, when I arrived by train, pick me up, and they took me to their home in La Teste de Buch, a city in the heart of Arcachon. Thanks to the warmth and hospitality of the family, I was able to quickly adapt to the local lifestyle. With two very kind host parents, Marie-Claude and Pierre, a terrific Spanish friend named Miguel, and a wonderful home that surpassed all expectations, the foundation was laid for an unforgettable trip! Even though I attended classes to learn French, it was really the personal experiences outside of the classroom that taught me the most.
