Traveling, exploring, enjoying

Hey guys! Finally, another post on my weblog! I know… it’s been a while since my last post, a lot has happened, and I would have loved to keep you updated more frequently, but if you simply have no time to write a post, you can’t post anything! That’s basically the story of the last month. Busy, busy, busy… but sooooo immensely awesome, it’s going to be hard to describe! Well, let’s try. I just read my last post to check where I’d left you, finding out that I’ve not managed to write anything since the day before the Olympics started! That’s so long ago!

As most of you will know by now, I'll be working at the Holland Heineken House in Vancouver during the Winter Olympics next month. I'm looking so much forward to it! Being back in the city, meeting up with old study mates from my exchange at VIU, and of course experiencing the Olympics will make it a month never to forget!!! But this trip will not end after the closing ceremony of the games... It will only be the start of a total of 7 months exploring and enjoying the world at it's best! Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Bangkok and India will keep me occupied till September. Using this website I'll try to keep you all updated ... read more
