The first week I was here on Madeira, I experienced the true meaning of being homesick. It was something new for me because I have never been all alone, this far and for this long away from home. I didn’t expect my reaction to be so extreme as it was. At the end of the first week I even considered going home because I felt so miserable.
Now I am here for three weeks already and starting to enjoy the time that I’m here. Coming to Madeira was the scariest, biggest, most exciting and most challenging thing to do for me so far, and yet I am still here. It may sound cheesy but it is true that you should never give up on your dreams and keep fighting when times get rough.
After days of rain always comes sunshine.
