RE: My Story
This is a great introduction post - and I'm so glad to see it doing so well! Welcome!
It looks like you come from a beautiful part of the world, but where you are now isn't bad either, right? And it was so sweet to read about you and your husband.
Just after high school I had a girlfriend who spent a year is an exchange student in Budapest. Obviously the language thing was hard for her too (she had signed up to go to Spain). Especially because one of the things she wanted to do was study sign language, and it turns out Hungary used their own version!
