Continuing the foreign locale theme...in my junior year of high school, I was an exchange student to England, in a town called Hemel Hempstead. I didn't like it as much as I thought I would at first, but after I got into the groove of things I enjoyed myself pretty well. The last month I was there I spent with a new host family I had a lot more in common with than my first one.
In spite of my working in the airline industry, I only have been back once since my high school years. I hope to go again within the next year or two, though.
