Hey friends! First and foremost, let’s address the elephant in the room: I haven’t posted anything since the beginning of March…

AND no, I didn’t forget about you. I could come up with a list of lame excuses but honestly, I just didn’t know what to write about.

So what has this exchange blogger been up to?

I am still a law-abiding citizen and I don’t think missing class is worth it to go on a trip, so I’ve tried to work around long weekends and breaks to travel as much as I possibly could:

  • March 10th: Day Trip to Bruges & Brussels, Belgium 🇧🇪
  • March 23rd to 25th: A Weekend in Cologne, Germany 🇩🇪
  • March 30th to April 2nd: Easter Weekend in Paris, France 🇫🇷
  • April 13th: Visited the Kinderdijk Windmills in The Netherlands 🇳🇱
  • April 16th to 22nd: My boyfriend flew from Canada to visit me! 🇳🇱

I promise mom and dad, I still go to school and eat my (frozen) veggies! But it’d be a huge mistake not to take advantage of travelling as much as I can while living in the Netherlands.

That being said, my semester abroad is halfway done as of now. I’m happy with my experience here, so far, and thinking about leaving soon GIVES ME ALL THE FEELS (not the good kind).Image result for sad gif

I’ve had my ups, such as :

  • miraculously still having money to support myself
  • taking FUN workout classes near my gym that kick my butt
  • made new friends!!!
  • doing a lot better than I thought I did in the classes that I took during the first half of this semester.

I’ve had my downs, such as :

  • getting lost while riding my bike (ended up in a different city as opposed to Utrecht city centre)
  • falling off my bike (there was a grandma in the way and I thought I could go around her safely. I didn’t hit her, thankfully)
  • getting my bike confiscated for a parking violation that cost me €20 (apparently exchange Ana is a delinquent…BUT in my defence, I thought it was okay to park there because there were lots of bikes)

So that made it seem like I have bad luck with bikes but I love riding mine! Believe it or not…

Anyway, I’m happy to be writing again on my blog. I have more adventures planned out so stay tuned!!!

Tot ziens!
