My YFU host family, the Teteris family , is the best for many reasons.
First of all I have to say that I felt at home living with them; I could always rely on my host parents and I still can. Dziesma, my host mom, always had time to talk to me if I had problems, or just because she wanted. We would sit for 4 or 5 hours sometimes just talking, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company. My host dad Erik was very caring during my exchange year and he always found time to help me. Also I have to thank my host sister Annija – she taught me a lot!
It is not easy to put my experience in words because I have tons of wonderful memories living with my family. I felt happy and comfortable, maybe even a little bit spoiled in a good way 🙂
