What have I been up to in Amsterdam? #4

12th – 15th January 2018 There are definitely pros and cons to long distant relationships but a pro is definitely that you treat every visit like a mini-holiday. We always end up spending to much, but money is there to be spent, right? This weekend we investigated some new bars, and ended up getting a […]

Stop comparing YOUR year abroad to other people’s year abroad

I don’t know what’s happened since I came back after Christmas, but I have been pretty much genuinely really happy and content and yes, whilst the improved weather has helped a lot, I think it has a lot to do with my attitude. I’ve made a conscious effort to just not compare my year abroad […]

What have I been up to in Amsterdam? #3

Tuesday 9th January 2018   So I arrived back in Amsterdam after Christmas with the aim of trying to make the most of Amsterdam as I felt like up until this point, I hadn’t been, namely I felt I had been lazy in making an effort to go into the city centre!   I’d been […]

A new year in the Netherlands: Goals? Resolutions? #2

I thought I’d post the second part of my resolutions for 2018! Gym/eating healthy: It’s a cliche one but I’ve been into fitness and healthy eating for I’d say around three years. I love the gym and eating well but I do think my nutrition could be more filled with whole foods! And making an […]

Documenting your year abroad

Documenting my year abroad was a really important necessity of mine, and as i’m sure – a lot of other people! I’ve always been interested in photography, I wouldn’t say it’s really a strong skill of mine but I enjoy it nonetheless. I’ve also always been interested in purchasing a Polaroid camera for a long, […]

A new year in the Netherlands: Goals? Resolutions? #1

Happy New Year! I returned to Amsterdam last night after a relaxing and enjoyable two weeks at home and have to say, I am very happy to be back. I think I definitely needed a break and some time at home but I was certainly excited to get back here. I’m always one for setting […]

My first semester in the Netherlands overall

Even though strictly speaking, my first semester isn’t over, in my head, once Christmas holidays hit – the semester is over. So I thought i’d just discuss the first fourth months of my semester studying in Amsterdam.   Wow, to be honest I can’t believe it’s already been four months. I have my two final […]

Exams in the Netherlands

I’ve discussed the Dutch timetable a few times but right now, my entire life is just about exams so I’m not really feeling inspired to write about anything else. You basically have exams looming CONSTANTLY, which for anybody is bad, but a stress- head like myself? It is definitely not healthy for me. It’s period […]

One day winter itinerary in Amsterdam, on a budget.

One day winter itinerary in Amsterdam, on a budget.

  There’s so much to do in Amsterdam it’s difficult to decide what to do and when, especially when you’re potentially only there for a few days nor are you made of money. So, I decided to create a one- day itinerary that you could use for a visit here that won’t break the bank! […]
