Saying goodbye to our summer guests

14 Aug

Julian and Joshua at Reed House

Yesterday, we said goodbye to our last guests from our first year as a host family.

Julian and Joshua’s coach was scheduled leave Exmouth at 7pm, but although they had to drop off their luggage at 9am and there were activities on at the Community College that afternoon, they still came back to say goodbye to us in the afternoon.

They joined us 2 weeks ago, having met for the first time and we hope they left as friends. Travelling to the Channel Tunnel last night, they were to change coaches at around midnight as Joshua was travelling home to Bavaria in the South East of Germany and Julian to the Ruhr in West Germany.

We have since heard that Julian reached home at 3:10pm this afternoon and Joshua at 7pm which meant a 24 hour journey for him, who’s only 12!
