During my exchange I also took a weekend trip to Chicago and Toronto and the very first trip we made was a day trip to the Niagara Falls. Since Detroit is just on the other side of the river, we also made a few day trips over to Detroit. It was very easy to get there with the tunnel bus. In Detroit we also had time to attend two NHL games which I definitely do not regret doing. In the first game Detroit Red Wings met Dallas Stars and in the second game Detroit Red Wings met Buffalo Sabres. Even if you are not very hockey interested, I believe this is a thing that many enjoys anyway. You also got the opportunity to go to the games played by Windsor’s own team. When it comes to prices, Sweden is not that different from Canada. Prices for food and clothes is approximately the same.
Personally, I think I have grown a lot during my time in Canada. Before I was not a very big fan of travelling alone, but now it is something which I am more open to. I have also realized how easy it can be to travel and will definitely be travelling a lot more from now on.
If you are thinking of going on exchange but are hesitating, don’t! Just do it and I promise it will be something you will not regret. I know I don’t.
During my exchange, I wrote a blog where you can find more information and pictures. The blog can be found at https://nouw.com/isabelledvinsson. If you have any other questions, you are also very welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
