The last month before the start of the new year, is always a busy one. Especially this year, as the NEWTs (Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests had to be taken). I, of course, knew that the NEWTs would be right before the start of the new school year and it would be extremely busy, but I tried my hardest to pass the necessary exams, to become my preferred profession after graduating Hogwarts.
There’s nothing more exciting than landing in a new city, your head swirling with anticipation, ideas and recommendations.
On June 7th, 2015, I, therefore, decided to pack my bags and travel to Lisbon, Portugal, and start a new life, a new job and leave behind the Netherlands. Only 11 months later, I decided to move again and continue my journey towards Dublin, Ireland, where I’ve spent 3 years, 3 months and 11 days of my life. I had my ups and downs, but all in all, I’ve learned to love the country, the people and the friends I’ve made along the way.
