Greetings from The Netherlands! The Netherlands is a flat country in the heart of Europe and travelling from here to other European countries is extremely easy and quick. I’m staying in Utrecht which is a lovely student city near Amsterdam. But basically, The Netherlands is such a small country that nothing is far from Amsterdam.:D
I have totally fallen in love with Utrecht with all its cute streets, old buildings, canals, biking and friendly people. Cycling is actually a big part of people’s everyday life here and I have adapted to that pretty easily. I do like cycling around the city and to school as well. Cycling with friends all day long, having coffee and lunch in the city and sleeping is just perfect on a lazy Sunday. In addition to Utrecht, I really like Amsterdam and thus, I’d love to do my internship there.

Of course, parties, travelling and hanging out with international friends is a big part of my life here but also studying takes a lot of time. I was actually surprised how much effort we are supposed to put on the school stuff, such as, group works, individual portfolios and finally, to the exams.:P However, I really enjoy my studies too even though they are tough sometimes. At least the classmates are super cool, teachers motivating and competent, and the given tasks are relevant.
I think that was my student life in Utrecht in a nutshell. I hope you all enjoy your life wherever you are!;)
