Hello! I'm Quin and I will be venturing into the wonderful land of the Netherlands, known to be where the tallest people in the world are located and bred eh Tori. It's the land of tulips, windmills, bicycles, and wonderful individuality.
I will be there from February to June quite a large amount of time and I cannot wait. I hear the food is great, the people are very friendly and Vincent Vaughn himself was born there.I was perplexed but just to clear up all the confusion the Netherlands is also referred to as the land of the Dutch and known to be called Holland.
It is located in North-west Europe right next to Germany just above Belgium. The capital is, surprise, Amsterdam!
I will be in the Northern region of the country in a town called Groningen. It contains two schools the University of Groningen and Hanze University. I will be a student at Hanze.
Now I must warn you if you do come to visit me or I see you before/after I have been there, don't ask me how to pronounce half this stuff. I butcher it horribly and will probably teach you the wrong pronunciation.
I will be studying International Communications, working towards my minor.
I hope to learn Dutch but I have heard that English is spoken freely and probably better than most Americans, but who didn't see that coming.
I hope you enjoy our Blog and stay tuned for further updates!
