The RW and I are joined up to Host, an organisation which takes foreign students, studying in the UK, for little breaks to learn about and savour British culture and family life. They usually stay only for a weekend, and we fit in what we can, from trips to Loch Lomond to doing the weekly shop with us! They love it!
Today, Fiona from Taiwan is coming for the weekend. She's studying at Leeds Uni, and wants to see more than her University Campus for a wee while! Boy will she be in for a shock! Three dogs, a cat, and the occasional mouse thrown in!
It's a great thing to do and is mutually beneficial. Try it at least once! You'll enjoy the experience!
