Is this too ambitious (taking a trip home during term time)? Watch

    I am in America and am a 12 hours travel time from home via flights and buses, since I'm an intentional student.

    The government funds several of my return trips back home, and this means, I will have one return trip remaining
    .
    I'm thinking of using this going home for about 5 days (skipping a couple of days of lectures) to surprise friends and family, and to have a short break after my mid term exams before returning to America and continuing with lectures and stuff.

    I'm only here for an exchange year so will only be able to do this this year. I feel like this is an absolutely crazy idea but my parents supported me on this so I'm now considering it... What would you say- would you do it if you were in my place (despite the fact it's pretty ambitious)?

    So you think it's a bad idea to go home early for around 5 days (the flight would get paid off by SFE) and instead, would just go home at Xmas instead?

    Is this a year abroad exchange?

    Yes, the exchange is for a year. I'll be going home at Xmas anyway, but can do one more return flight if I want to
