It’s been half a week that I am home and I can’t still believe that I have been able to be back in my second home.
Since 5 years after my Exchange, I used to dream about coming back to Canada. And a month ago: I rested my steps again there.
The feeling to walk in this land after a long time was unreal and I can’t explain how much I was happy to be there.
When I did faced this place again, I saw new things that appeared, others disappear, but most important were the ones that remained.
Hugging the people that I love was, by far, the best part of this trip and I will cherish all those new moments past with them.
While going out to see all these beautiful landscapes, views and cultures, I felt reliving my old memories. It made me realize how much I had missed it since a long time.
Every day that I spent here, I felt lucky and since one of them ended, it made me appreciate every minute much more than those days before.
I cannot express how thanksful it is for me to have be there again.
Today, a part of myself is home but the other isn’t.
Being away from home during a year of exchange was tough and complicated: leaving your country, culture, family and friends for another land isn’t easy as you think.
But this experience gave me the opportunity to find new families that I could love and a new place that I could call home.
Since then, this flag always gave me a sensation of happiness and memories everytime I saw it wave in the air.
That’s the reason why I will love it for the rest of my life.
Fly high, baby, fly high: until next time! 🇨🇦
