Nova Scotia Exchange Program Foreign Correspondent Camp

This is how we enjoyed our foreign correspondence camp!

sunny 20 °C

Most of us arrived on friday evening to Truro. We are staying in NSCC’s residence with lovely roommates. This place is so green, fresh and big. We have lots of people here to help us and make us comfortable such as ambassadors and program managers. Everyone is socializing and we also became close friends with each other, other internationals and some Canadians, of course. Now, we are having and education about what we are going to do for the rest of our exchange program: foreign correspondence. It is for sharing our experiences with Nova Scotia, our home countries and the next exchange students who should be following us to learn what is waiting them here ;) We are on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and this blog for you guys to follow us.

Our first trip was to Halifax on Saturday afternoon. We went to the Halifax Citadel which was quite interesting because there are lots of people who still “live” in that century with their amazing old clothes and items. The castle is in the middle of the City and it is surrounded by high walls so nobody would attack them. They still have old guns and old rooms and furnitures for exhibition. There are some touching stories about war-time heroes which you should read once you get there.

After Halifax Citadel tour, we went on a Harbour Hopper tour. It is something that makes you learn all about Halifax city. The vehicle was so fancy that we started our tour on land and we went on the water. There was an amazing girl who told all about the city so we enjoyed it a lot.


Dinner at McKelvies was totally delicious! Sebnem ate “blackened salmon” which they cook with some special spices and Alina and Alvaro had a salad and steak because they are not fan of the sea food but we all enjoyed sweet potato fries :)


On Sunday, we have visited the Victoria Park in Truro. It was so big and nice with lots of waterfalls that people enjoyed the cold water after a hot day. At Park, all of the foreign correspondence students were together with following each other on basements to climb up and see the better view of the nature.


Now, we are little bit sad because we have to say goodbye to each other and to you but we are also happy because we will say hello to our host families! We will stay in touch so we will always now what kind of experience we are having in our exchange life. See you soon!

Sebnem Atci, Alina Grons, Alvaro Ortega.

Foreign Correspondents Camp.

As new correspondents we have the chance to tell the world about our great adventures. But we don't just know how to do it. That is why we were all invited to the Foreign Correspondent Camp.

During this camp we learned a lot of thing about social media and blogging. After getting to know each other better we started with our first class. We had a really interesting introduction to photography. We learned some very basic tricks to make better photos and make our photos look more professional. At 1:00 p.m. we travelled to Halifax. First we went to the Halifax Citadel. It is fort that was built to protect the city from enemies. We also got a tour of the city of Halifax on a Harbour Hopper. A Habour Hopper is a bus but it can function as a boat as wel. We saw some beautiful thing in the city and the harbour. After the Harbour Hopper we went to eat at McKelvies, a restaurant famous for it's seafood. We had an amazing time at Halifax. We were all so tired most of us slept on the way back home.

On the second day, we were learning about how to post our experiences on social media and about the rules which we have to respect. After that, we practiced to write about our adventures. After lunch, we went to Victoria park in Truro and got to see the falls. The second day was the last day of our camp so we had dance party. All the international students and ambassadors were ready for the dance party. We had great time with exciting songs and snacks.
In the last few minutes, all the students and teacher were crying because they had really good memories but they have to leave here. I am sure we had great time and also best friends all over the world.
