Hei hei Kokkola

Bowling with my second host family on my last day in Kokkola. I lost.

It’s my last day in Kokkola, and I’m sad to go. I got to see all my former families multiple times, and visit with some friends and my old counsellor. Overall, I got to do everything I wanted to. Everyone seems so much the same; it really feels like I never left. Although whenever I was asked what has changed in my life, I don’t have much to say either. I suppose it is just hard to sum up four years into a few minutes. One of my past host sisters, Alina, will be going on exchange herself in September and I am so excited for her. Even though I’m embarking on a similar trip now, it’s not as scary and new as it was the first time. First time flying alone, first time being truly independent and having to find your own way. It’s exhilarating and frightening and I love that feeling. Probably why I’m doing it all again!

Gingervere is the Middle English origin of ginger. Despite being the go-to word to describe redheads, some definitions of ginger are: spirit, liveliness, vigor, piquancy, enliven, and animation.

I'm a 21-year-old student originally from Canada, but currently on an adventure in Belgium for the semester. This blog will follow me, my musings, and whatever shenanigans I get up to while I travel around Europe and occassionally attend classes.
