You might just enjoy what you find and the people you find doing it.My first time living in a foreign land was over 5 years ago as a participant in an intensive foreign language program.During this experience I was surrounded by many other fellow exchange students, who all had several things in common: we were young, university-aged foreigners, with lots of free time dedicated to having fun, and everyone was anxious to meet one another and forge friendships easily and quickly.You need some people you can turn to and mutually vent with on days when you are homesick or encounter a cultural difference which frustrates you.Meeting up with someone from your own culture who understands your cultural references, speaks your native language, and celebrates your major holidays is also a good idea if you can find someone.Plus, having more friends in your new location can certainly help make your new environment feel like home.
