NEW VIDEO* – Our experience as students in the Netherlands

Hi Loves!

Back to my blog after so long! I have been having the worst schedule ever. With work times and then planing to do activities or even just being sick with the flue on my off days has been taking all my time. But last week I filmed a video with a fellow Saban (ex)student, Solange who is also living here in the Netherlands and we shared our experience as students in the Netherlands. Of course us being small island girls who came to this big county to study you can already guess that we have a lot to share. So making it even more interesting and instead of write it all out we had a conversation/discussion and got it all filmed and edited into a video which is more interesting, right?! With out writing more below you can find the link to the YouTube video.

& Don’t forget to like, comment & subscribe if haven’t already! If you have any comments about what we shared we would love to know what you think! Have a great Friday & an even better weekend!

Made it to Curaçao.

Hi there,

Finally I am able to make a blog post…

Since arriving here I have been up and down, round and round! Busy with my family and friends.

I arrived safely in Curaçao, last week Thursday. My flight was scheduled to leave Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at 10:00 a.m. however, it was delayed by about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The airline I flew here with was KLM and like always I loved flying with them. The flight was smooth and the service onboard was perfect as usual.

After passing through all the security checks I made my way to look around and then decided to get something from Starbucks. The chia tea latte was the perfect combination to go along with two homemade sandwiches I brought along.

Some pictures of shops pass the security points…

The one thing when traveling with KLM is that you do not have to worry about being hungry or thirsty. They are always coming around with water, snacks and meals to keep you contented and hydrated. I took some pictures of my snacks and meals.

After being in the air we first got some nuts and water as an ‘Arrival Snack’, then after departure my 1st meal choice was the Pasta Arrabbiata! (I enjoyed it)  Later on we got a ‘Movie Snack’ it was ice-cream and water. (Who doesn’t like ice-cream?) Then the 2nd meal before landing was a light hot meal called Bella Italia. (Yummy) I was super happy with the meal selection and the quality of the food. I must add to it that the presentation of each tray is very fitting to the KLM house-style.

I also love the fact that you can track the flight and see your exact location. The picture below was taken when the airplane was close to arriving in Curaçao.

The feeling of landing in Curaçao is always great, flying over the smashing blue waves and colourful houses is an incredible feeling. This island is one of my many homes away from home, so I am grateful that I can spend a few days with family and friends here on Curaçao.

On the airport present to pick me up was my Aunt along with my Mother. My mother was also ‘toevallig’ by chance also here on a business trip and was able to see me arrive as well. It is a great feeling to be here! I will be collecting some video footage along with picture of the island and sharing that.
