Netherlands

Who hasn't heard of Amsterdam, the capital of culture, coffee houses and canals? Its mesmerising beauty is hard to overestimate, and yet a surfeit of stunning metropoles are only hours, or even minutes, away by train. The Netherlands borders on over-achievement. Its bucolic splendour of national parks and sheep-patrolled polders is perfectly complemented by shimmering lakes, sandy coastlines, and a chain of windswept islands. Best of all, it can all be seen from a bicycle seat.

I had what was no doubt “the experience of a lifetime”! I learnt Dutch to an almost fluent level, made many close friends and had the opportunity to travel to Norway, Sweden, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and Spain. I spent my 18th birthday in Paris. The 5.5 months absolutely flew by. School was great. It gave me the opportunity to quickly learn Dutch, make friends and also to travel. My host family and I were a perfect match from day one.
