I arrived in the Netherlands in August 2012. It was a sunny day at the train station in Rotterdam. I am French and was supposed to stay for 1 year of study and then go back home. Well, as you might have guessed it already it didn’t go as planned because I am still here!
I just fell in love with the country and its culture. There was something about the Netherlands that made me feel better than in my own country. So, after 1 year of study in Rotterdam, I decided to give it a shot and stay an extra year. I moved to Tilburg in 2013 to study at Tilburg University. I went afterwards to work catching all opportunities, so I could start my career before going back to France. It went so well that I decided to stay and later on to go to Dutch class to integrate better in my new country. There I met other internationals like me, who introduced me to the club. I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to be part of this club. It really helped me to find my place.
I like challenges, so I went for the event team with my friend Jessica and I can say that it was worth it. Actually the full experience of travelling and establishing myself in another country was worth it.

In keeping with the Fall spirit, for #FlashBackFriday, let’s take a look back at our run through a local corn maze!
22 Sept 2013. by Patricia Gonzalez. It was a cool, cloudy Saturday afternoon – the kind you get when autumn follows fast on the heels of summer as if determined to obliterate memories of 30-degree days. A fifteen-minute drive from Reeshof brought us to the Dutch countryside where the roads were lined with trees and every few hundred meters, farmhouses dotted the landscape.
Our little group gathered at a maisdoolhof (corn maze) in Dongen to go on a speurtocht (trailhunt). The instructions were simple: walk through the cornfield looking for letters and pictures. The letters, when combined, form a message. Sounds easy? Not quite. Once in the maze, (more…)
