Leaving the Motherland

To everyone who has followed me on my journey:

 

Alas, my time in Russia has come to an end.  It was a wonderful experience that I will never forget.  I have learned so many new things and made many new friends. Even now as I pack my bags to return home, I can’t help but feel a little sad that I am leaving. I guess the time has come to return home and share my experiences abroad with friends and family. I am very excited to have passed the first level of the Russian Language Proficiency exam, and will be receiving a certificate via mail for that. I truly feel like I have gained so much here. I really hoped that you all had fun following me on my adventures, and continue to learn about the vast world we live in.  I think the more we learn about another culture and language, the better we get to see the world in a new way. There is so much to be gained by studying abroad. I will definitely try to travel more now, and thanks to FEA I have truly discovered the benefits of studying abroad. Thank you all so very much for following me. Do Svidaniya! (Goodbye!)
