From December 18th to 21st, there were only four days, but I really had so many sweet memories and special experiences during those days.
I have never been to South Korea before and I was not very familiar with this country too. So at first, besides excitation, I was also a little bit nervous about being a partner and a host family to a Korean girl.
But after I sent a welcome e-mail to my partner, ???, I discovered that it is not as difficult as I thought. I did an introduction about my family and myself and gave her some of our pictures in the e-mail. And I also told her how much we looked forward to her arrive, some Taiwanese lifestyles, the way to contact with me, and so on.
Then I found that she was a very nice girl by the e-mail which she replied to me. She introduced herself too and told me a lot of different things in Korea. We have already known each other a lot by e-mail before we really met in person. It made me be more excited about this trip and couldn't wait any more!
On December 18th, when I first saw her, I discovered that she is really a little shy just like what she said. And I really didn't know what to say to her at first. But after the first-day dinner, we started to be much more familiar and did talk a lot.
This time was my second time to be a host family, but last time was only for one day. So this kind of experience was still very fresh to me. And she really surprised me by giving so many presents to my family. My parents said that she was really a very polite girl and liked her a lot.
At those days, we went out to so many different places with all the Korean students. It not only made me visit a lot of places that I have never been to, but also gave me a chance to make friends with a lot of lovely girls.
During those four days, I felt very tired but substantial every day. Everywhere we visited is full of so many unforgettable memories. And I really enjoyed every moment.
To me, the greater thing of this trip is not how many places we have visited, is I really had so many wonderful friendships with all the Korean girls. Without this experience, I can also go to those places, but it will never be the same.
Except for Korean students, I also met a lot of Taiwanese partners who just like me. They were really passionate and kind. The trip was so amazing because of not only Korean students but also all the Taiwanese girls.
Time flies so fast. Those four days seemed like only five minutes to we. It seemed we just met each other, but in fact it was already the time to go for them. At the airport, most of us cried so hard. I started to miss them so much after we just separated.
But I know that separation is not the end of our story. It just remains us that it is time to turn the page. And I am sure that it will be more beautiful on the next page. And after they went back to Korea, we are still contacting with them by the chat group. I also keep in touch with my lovely partner a lot.
And if it is possible, I really want to go to Busan to see all them again next year. I believe that the relationship between us will never disappear. Even if the trip ended, the memories between us will always be there.
