meeting people

October 21, 2008

HI! Yesterday I arranged to meet a Dutch guy for an English exchange . It was an interesting experience since he has been travelling a lot due to his work.

He is a freelance  but he works for a political consultancy company. Although people consider it is nice to visit other countries, actually this kind of work is not as enjoyable as we imagine. He is often waiting for flights at airports, and instead of sightseeing around a new city he must stay at the hotel and prepare the meeting for the next day. So he asked me if I thought it is worth travelling like this. Obviously staying in the country for a while is the best way to get in touch with a new culture and way of living, but there are also  drawbacks, like  readapting yourself  to new cirscuntances and seaching  a new  house, new friends, and facing a new language…so are you willing to face this challenge?
