"Life changing"

"Doing an exchange in Mexico has definitely been the best decision of my life.

For someone who had never been outside of New Zealand, it was a pretty scary step coming to Mexico of all places but now having completed the exchange I would not have chosen any other place. Mexico is an incredibly beautiful and complex country, with so many different environments and so much history – 6 months will end up feeling like you've lived a whole year here with the amount of things you experience! The people are so friendly and welcoming, and the culture, the food, the architecture is amazing. Mexico is definitely a second home for me now, and I will return soon! The friends I made on this trip were awesome, and now I have a massive international family all over the world."
