• It was a pleasure exploring the super colorful streets of Pietermaai.. ☺️🌈 // This district was once a deprived area, but it got a huge make-over several years ago and it’s nowadays the place to-be in Willemstad! The nicest hotspots can be found here and the buildings are bursting with the brightest colors, which instantly lifts your mood 💛 • | Pietermaai, Curaçao
• Playa Kenepa Grandi... 🌊 // After having visited many wonderful beaches on the island, I thought I wouldn’t be surpised anymore. But then on one afternoon, we visited this one! After we parked the car and walked towards the seaside, I was dazzled by a bright stroke of deep blue water which was becoming bigger & bigger. Once we arrived at the beach, I simply couldn’t believe my eyes. This is defintely one of the most incredible beaches I’ve ever seen.. 💙 • | Playa Kenepa Grandi, Curaçao
• Swimming under the stars.. 🌌 • | Jan Thiel, Curaçao
• Calm water, high mountains & a palette of chesnut brown colors.. 🌋🕊 • | Curaçao
• A slice of paradise... 🌴🌺 // Defintely missing the warm, tropical weather! During our stay, it was around 30 degrees everyday and (luckily) it rained mostly during the nights. But today, I might’ll be able to relive Summer again, since temperatures above 20 degrees will be reached in Holland. (Still unbelievable 😱) Have a good weekend y’all! • | Mambo beach, Curaçao
• Unexpected roads may lead to the most surprising places... ✨ // When travelling, I’m usually the one who plans everything beforehand. Knowing what to see, where to eat & what to do provides more certainty & less stress. But sometimes, it’s also important to let loose of a perfectly planned scheme and just see where you’ll end up spontaneously. That’s exactly what happened here. When we were driving towards our resort after a full day exploring several beaches, my dad decided to pick a random road instead of driving straight back. Within several minutes, we ended up with this incredible view.. It was defintely one of the most memorable moments of my week 💛 • | Curaçao

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..
