Growing up, my summers consisted of melting trash cans, feeling like your walking into an oven every time you go outside, and driving to Coronado Island, a place where most Arizonians go to escape the intense heat. Throughout my life, I have been to Costa Rica, Bahamas, and Canada. But I have never traveled overseas away from my family. With that being said, I’m not sure of my expectations yet. I do know that I am overall excited to experience a culture that I have been interested in for a couple of years and gain an experience of a home-stay for the first time. I am also looking forward to the food, the daily life of living in Morocco and having an open mind about this trip.
