A New Seat at the Table

This used to be our expression at my host-family in Germany, “We lay a new table cover at the table.”

On Saturday, we will be too, welcoming Marc, a new member of our family! He is with the same program as I attended last-year, but coming from Germany to the USA.

I think, personally, it will be interesting to see what my host-family experienced in person and just a great way to be able to meet new, incredible people and open our home to them.

 

I will be blogging as well as Marc this year about our experiences and what we see. I think it will be like the exchange year all over again and I am really excited! We will see ๐Ÿ™‚

 

We can’t wait to meet him at the airport!

 

Also, stay tuned for updates on the e-commerce website coming up at the end of the month! I hope your excited as I am!

 

I will be offering a free raffle picture giveaway. In order to be eligible, you need to complete a purchase of a piece of art on the site (the money will be going toward a travel fundraiser) and your name will be automatically entered for the raffle. Check out the post here to see what it’s all about!

As always, all the best and thanks for reading! It’s incredible how many new things can happen in just a year. Yesterday, last year, was the day I first arrived in Germany :’) And it will always hold a place in my heart and one of my “homes”.

 

Home is where family is…. What does home stand for to you? Tell us below ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone has a story.

 

 

To You,

PS: And again happy b-day to my Host-Grandma! And Condolences to the Robin Williams’ family for their loss.

Become a Host Family in North Carolina, or another state… we are.

Are you interested in culture or travel? What if I told you that you could experience a culture and stay at home? That’s right!

 

In North Carolina (even other states), CIEE is in need of host families, ordinary people like you and me, who would like to impact someone’s life or get to know a new culture and open their doors to the world to a privileged child.

 

Did you know we will be hosting a Congress Bundestag kid this year, from Germany? Oops, that was a surprise :O

 

If your even the slightest bit interested or think, hey that’s a cool idea, let CIEE know. It will impact your life and most certainly for the better. And they will be happy to assist you with any questions or concern you might have ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

If your interested, please complete the form below and I will forward all the emails to the CIEE Coordinator, Ms. Stanley.

As I said, if your slightly interested, just send an email. You cannot even begin to believe how incredible this would be for you and your kids or other members.

 

I know my host-family in Germany thought it was definitely an experience of a lifetime. My host mom even applied as a local coordinator in Germany and said she would host other students again.

 

I’m telling you, it will be an awesome experience.. Just send an email below.

 

Have a great day,

Igor

CBYX/PPP this year…. What does it mean in our world?

Good Evening Fellow Readers,

 

Please watch this before reading….

 

 

My goodness, after searching for it seems like forever, I FINALLY came across a few CBYX Bloggers for this year. Again, CBYX is the Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange Program, a youth exchange program made to increase the relationships between Germany and the USA and for people like you and me to learn German, live in a host-family and experience culture shock beyond belief for an entire year. Sounds cool right?

 

Well here are a few people who are currently in my footsteps and are going through what I went through a year ago.

Have a good evening und bis spรคter,
