Judy Eyles the chairman for the evening welcomed Emma to present to the club.
Emma gave an excellent presentation in video and powerpoint of her time in Germany as a Rotary Exchange student.
Emma stayed in Bad Sigeburg in the north of Germany near Hamburg.
In the town she found many attractions such as the Lake and a theatre show amphitheatre held every Summer.
She had 3 host families who welcomed her into their home and to various places in Germany and Europe.
Her first host family took her skiing in Austria where unfortunately she had an accident and was on crutches for a short time.
One of the highlights of the year was the Eurotour where they visited Prague, Vienna, Berlin, Venice, Brussels, Paris and Amsterdam. She enjoyed being with all the other 47 exchange students and seeing different places in a 2 ½ weeks.
She has made many friends for life.
Other highlights were
  • visiting the Christmas markets with her host family
  • touring Germany especially Keil and Munich
  • celebrating New Years with her first host family.
She also enjoyed catching up with Yohanna and spending time with the other exchange students.
The farewell was emotional it was sad to say goodbye but it was good to be home safe.
Welcome home Emma
