My HOMESTAY PARENTS treated me as if I was their own daughter. We went camping near Mt. Hood–they even asked me if I wanted to take a friend on the trip with us. My host family is the kindest and the most hospitable couple!

I love all the things you can do in PORTLAND! When I was in Portland I did a lot of HIKES in many different and beautiful places! It was easy to take trips to the Olympic Peninsula, Multnomah Falls, and Crater Lake.

My HOST MOTHER is a good teacher, too! After school, we usually talk to each other. And she is an excellent cook. She always fixes different dinners for me. I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful homestay experience.
