It’s time to say goodbye to Asia

After over 3 years of constant voyages across Asia, I decided to get back to Europe for 12 months. In September 2014 I start my master’s degree in New Media and Digital Culture at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) combined with a part-time job I was kinda dreaming about!

I could not be happier to get accepted to this programme and trust me, it was not easy to get through the application process (I did my bachelor’s degree in Education formerly). For the last few months living in China, I had been preparing myself mentally and financially for this big change, so I’m ready to take Europe big time!

Future (travel) plans

Moving to Holland is another part of my travel experience. It’s a new adventure I can’t wait for. Although I’ll mainly focus on my studies, I’m planning on seeing all of the hidden gems of the Netherlands and (of course) blog about them. I’m on a mission to discover Dutch cuisine (that’s my favorite part I won’t lie to you), traditions, culture and people’s mentality.

My travel plans are not limited to Holland only. I’ve already made a list of countries I’m going to visit during my stay in Europe. It starts from France, Bulgaria, Romania, Spain, Portugal, Croatia and ends up in Estonia and Iceland. As I’ll be living so close to my home country (Poland), it’s going to be a great opportunity to get familiar with some underrated travel destinations here as well.

Like it or not (I hope you like it though), but there is going to be a lot of $25 a day posts from Europe on eTramping and I’ll make sure to travel as cheap as possible.

Why Holland?

That’s the question many ask. In my eyes, Holland is charming and laid back. Amsterdam is fascinating, with a rich history and some of the world’s best cultural offerings and there is a huge international community there. I’ve already made friends with fellow travel bloggers who live and work there so meeting new amazing people is never a problem there. The city itself is so beautiful -canals, bikes and beautiful buildings. What more could you ask for?

Fun in Amsterdam

Besides, there are plenty of events going on in Amsterdam so I won’t get bored, that’s for sure.

How About Cez?

Cez decided to extend his stay in China for another year. Although we do split up and I will proudly call myself a solo female traveler soon, we are still going to run eTramping together.

Nothing changes here at all. We will just communicate through Skype, e-mails, phone and of course Facebook. Things are going to be as usual and the only one thing that changes is our location. By the way, we spent this summer together traveling around Zagan – my hometown.
