When studying overseas, it’s always really important to have a group of friends you can count on. Although we have not studied or worked overseas, we can imagine that it would be pretty lonely without having any family around. When you need someone to talk to, to have a meal with, or really just to spend time together, it’s good to know that your friends are just a text message away. Although we only spent half a day together with this group of 9, with the camaraderie we felt among them, we know they will be friends for life. The quality times spent together and the special bonds formed will be cherished for a lifetime.
