• What’s your favourite park in London? 🌳🕊 I prefer Hyde Park for picknicking, St. James’s Park to spot one of the most gorgeous blossoms during Spring and Regent’s Park for a relaxed day out (it’s quite big as well, almost got lost on the day I took this picture 🤔😂) • | Regent’s Park, London
• On the lookout.. 🐎 // Have a great weekend y’all! I’m planning to enjoy the good weather the upcoming days while it lasts ☺️ • | Trafalgar Square, London
• London calling. ☎️💥 // A new picture serie is coming up! I visited my all-time favourite city last week, and I can’t wait to show you all the beautiful spots I’ve captured around town 📸 During my stay, it kind of felt like I returned back to my second hometown. Places I’ve been to multiple times can become less-exciting after a while, but in one or another way this isn’t the case in this city. As the famous saying goes: “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. Amen to that 🙌🏾😌 • | West End, London
• ..Still not sure if I’m dreaming, but temperatures around 24 degrees will be reached in Holland this week! ❤️ It finally feels like Spring here (it took quite a while 😂), which means: spending as much of my time outdoors. What’s the weather like in the place you’re currently staying at? :) • | Jordaan, The Netherlands
• What paradise looks like 🌸☺️ • | Zuid Holland, The Netherlands
• let’s KICK this monday! 💥 // Looking for a more quiet canal area in the city? Head over to the Jordaan district, situated very close to the Prinsengracht. I recently visited this neighbourhood for the first time and loved the authentic atmosphere. Also, lots of art studios & independent shops can be found here 🙌🏾😌 • | Jordaan, The Netherlands

It all started last year: I was almost finishing my Bachelor of Law and started thinking of what should be the next step in my life. Starting right away with my master didn’t sounded like a good idea to me, since that would mean I would have to to find a job soon and my life as a student would be over (wait, whaaat). In my opinion, I needed more time and experience before starting to get more serious. Travelling and exploring new cultures have always drawn my attention, so that’s how I began to think of studying abroad. I felt like I needed a new challenge: living in another city, getting involved into a new student life and experiencing a new culture: it all sounded very appealing to me. From that time on I started working on turning this idea into reality.

Picking the university and city to study was probably the hardest part, since my university offered a huge list of universities to which I could go. I had to make a top-3 list of my choices. After a lot of thinking and research, London was the city where I wanted to study in the first place. Living in the UK would mean that I would have to speak English all the time, which would help with improving my English skills (who knows if I manage to get a British accent before I return home ;-)). Besides that, I wanted to experience living in a world class city, gaining more knowledge of the common law system and of the rich history this big city has got to offer. I chose to study at the Queen Mary University of London, since it has a very good reputation, offers good Law courses and is situated in the city centre. After a few months I heard that I was accepted for the Erasmus+ program, and I couldn’t be any happier. The preparation for this big adventure was just about to begin..
