Don’t Stay Home from your Homestay
I spent last weekend in the Cumbria region of Northern England on my IFSA-Butler homestay, and I must say, it couldn’t have been a better experience. I stayed with Alex and Douglas Chalmers on their farm and enjoyed a weekend packed with activities, including picnics by waterfalls, exploring Pendragon Castle (where King Arthur’s father lived!), visiting a chocolate factory, attending a local ceilidh, and tasting my way through a national marmalade festival. Home-cooked meals, comfy beds, and the Chalmers’ great personalities were the cherries on top of this excellent weekend. I definitely hope to stay in touch with them, pictures soon to come!
