A life update: moving to Nijmegen

A life update: moving to Nijmegen

Hey guys, welcome back. It has been a while. The last time I posted on this blog, I still lived in Australia. As some of you may know, I traveled and lived around in Australia for six months. Now, I’m back in the Netherlands. And a lot has changed. Time for an update. I moved to Nijmegen!

Back to uni

I dedicated a previous post on how to deal with getting rejected from college. So you may know that I was trying to get into college. Well you guest it, I got in! In Nijmegen, a beautiful city in the Netherlands. I started my pre-master on Environment and Society studies back in September. It fits me so well and I enjoy studying so much. I am very grateful I got in and I am a happy student at Radboud University.

Moving to Nijmegen

So I was born and raised in the Netherlands, in a small town in the South. I already finished my bachelors degree in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, and I lived there for a few years. But for this pre-master, I had to go to Nijmegen. My father was born in Nijmegen and both of my parents studied at the University that I’m going now. So I knew Nijmegen a little before I moved here. A fun fact: Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands!

In the Netherlands we have this thing called “rooms” when you go to college. This means that you are moving in to a shared house and rent a room. 90% of the times you share this house with other students or people your age. It can be pretty difficult to find a room in big student cities like Nijmegen, but likely, it didn’t take me too long. I moved into my new room in October and I am sharing it with four other girls. I will show you guys my room in a separate post, or maybe a video!

What to expect in the upcoming few posts…

I’m so excited to share so many new things with you guys. I have a lot of inspiration and ideas for this blog and I am super happy I am back. So what to expect? I am going to share the best hotspots in Nijmegen, some new photography projects and lots of sustainability tips!

If you guys have any request or questions about me moving, or things about sustainability or Nijmegen, please let me know in the comments!

Lots of love,
Iris
