How does one accurately describe the journey taken, in complete confusion at first, then unexpectedly amazing?

My ONL experience started off confusing but ended up being incredibly engaging and rewarding. Through the various activities, I was able to build relationships with people from all over the world and gain insight into their perspectives on education. It was a great opportunity to learn from and collaborate with professionals from all over the world. I especially enjoyed the interactive discussions and the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with my group, whom I have grown to look forward to seeing each week. I adore how my group came together without hesitating to share their personal experience and knowledge. This experience was truly a learning opportunity for me, and I am incredibly grateful for the relationships I have made with this amazing group of individuals.
