Good morning (for me), so I am now in Antigua in the Caribbean, this is my last place of my trip all ready, but I stay here for almost 3 months. I am living with my uncle, who is living here for more then 30 years now. The weather is absolutely beautiful, I have a few jobs and for the rest I can go to the beach and sail all day. Can it be better, haha? Yesterday morning I went sailing with some friends, just a morning sailing in the Caribbean, haha.
I’m so sorry guys for not posting anything in a long time. How are you all doing? I heard the weather is pretty bad in the Netherlands, haha. The last two weeks went by so fast and I’ve been to lot of places and didn’t had wifi or time to make good blog posts about it, so now I finally have the rest and wi-fi, I’ll tell and show you everything from the last two weeks.
I’ll start with my last days in Costa Rica, in hotel Bougainvillea. The last week I worked as a waitress in the restaurant. I would leave the last day of October, and go to curaçao to celebrate my 18th birthday with my parents. But what we didn’t know was that because I was still a minor by that time I needed permission of my parents and so I could first not leave the country haha. Eventually everything turned out right and I was able to leave. The last day was amazing, it was sad though but still amazing! The people from the hotel were so nice and became really like a family to me. I baked another cake to thank everybody, and then as a surprise I got my own cake already for my birthday, they gave me all kind of little presents. It was really special and something I will never ever forget.
Hi guys, now that I’m graduated I will tell you my plans for my next chapter. I’m going to travel for half a year and after that I will start at the Hotelschool The Hague location Amsterdam on the first of February.
My journey will start at the first of September to Costa Rica for two months. The first month I will going to school in Playa Tamarindo to improve my Spanish and I will live on the campus there. After four weeks I will go to Santo Domingo where I will live and work in an hotel. It’s important to improve my language and hospitality skills for my study, that’s one of the main reasons for my travel. The last day of October I’ll fly to Curacao where my parents will be and where we will celebrate my 18th birthday. After a week Curacao I will continue my journey to Antigua in the Caribbean where my uncle lives. I will work and live in Antigua for almost 3 months and will return the 17th of January back to the Netherlands.
It’s an amazing opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. I’m looking forward to it but I’m also gonna miss my sisters and friends. I will keep you all up-to-date during my journey per this blog. I hope you’ll all enjoy it.
