Trying new foods can be surprising!
"Food was definitely a big part of my experience, as it always is! I tried sauced and packaged mushrooms! My host sister loves it, so she wanted me to try it!
Last month she had me try sauced duck tongue though, so I am kinda used trying new wacky foods. Surprisingly, the sauced mushrooms were actually pretty good!"

Discover what the world has to offer
"My favorite part of the Rome Abroad program was living in another country, meeting people around the world, and learning a lot from children.
My host family was kind and respectful. I'd recommend the Rome Abroad program because it's a great opportunity to start discovering what the world has to offer and can mature you in many ways."

The fanciest sushi I've ever had
"A weekend in China:
My host mom took her daughter and me out for sushi which is my favorite food. It was so amazingly delicious. I also tried sushi without the rice for the first time. The next day we went to the science museum. There were a bunch of kids running around playing with all of these science experiments. It was a lot of fun. After we went out for sushi again! Yay! It was seriously the fanciest sushi I’ve ever had. And to top it off the restaurant gave us free creme brûlée, which just so happens to be my favorite dessert. It was such a good weekend."
