The big news!

Yesterday I told you that today I’m going to tell you the big news that I’ve been hiding for a very long time now. And omg it was killing me not telling you guys. So without stalling, here it is: I’m going abroad! You probably are thinking “Nice, Nina is going to take a holiday vacation.”, but I’m not. As I told you many times before (sorry, to say it again) I’m a History student & this year is going to be my last year in university. I have to do an internship as a history teacher at a high/ secondary school and I’m going to do my final internship in the Caribbean. I’m going to Curacao and I will be staying there for 5 months.
Yes, you read that right! 5 months! In Curacao! On the 31st of January I’m taking the plane to this little peace of heaven and I won’t be back until the end of June. Hooray! I’m so excited!

Of course, that means that are going to be changes to the way I blog and the blog itself. It’s one of the reasons why I wanted to change it and post about my travels too. So, let’s talk about what’s going to change:

The Dutch Cover Alert posts will not continue when I’m abroad. I’m not sure if I’m able to post every Wednesday & therefore DCA will start again when I’m back. It will start again in July.

Less book reviews. I love to read, but I probably am not going to be able to read a book every single week. I’ll try, but there are no guarantees. Now this all doesn’t mean, that I’m not posting book reviews. I still have a couple book reviews that I’m going to post when I’m there and when I finish reading a book over there I will write a review for it and post it.

More personal & travel posts. This is obvious. Right? I’m going to keep a travel diary with me and I want to write every single thing down so I don’t forget anything. So there will be updates when I have something fun to share or not so fun, but I’m not thinking about that. I’m all positive here! I would love to see every single thing that is to see on the Island, so expect photo’s and posts about what I’m doing.

That's the big news! Yay!

@Leanna: Thank you! I'm pretty excited to go & can't wait to tell you all how it is there. Hopefully I can find some good bookstores that sell young adult books! Fingers crossed. :)

wow, congratulations Nina! I'm sure you will have a great time! Curacao is such a nice place! And it's close to my country, hehe.

Last year I made my internship at Chile (but only for three months) and it was a great opportunity for me, but not for my blog hehe.

But don't worry about the blog, have fun, enjoy! :P

Congratulations. What wonderful news!

No way!! You lucky woman :D I am a bit annoyed that I did not have to go somewhere for my studies. Everyone else had to but not the peeps in my group

Nina  – (7 januari 2012 om 05:46)  

@Gaby: Oh wow, Chile also sounds like a fab place to do an internship. :)

@Juju: oh, that's weird. I'm glad you can comment again! Woohoo! Thank you.

@Blodeuedd: Ah, but you can travel now! :)

I am so jealous of your travel abroad plans - and I hope it lives up to expectations! You better share some awesome pictures of food, places, people, etc :D

@All: Thank you so much. Today I just started a little big of packing & omg, I need to take a second suitcase with me. So much shoes. lol. :)

@booksntea: You mean which history subjects? The teacher e-mailed me and said that I probably will be teaching about World War II etc. :)

How exciting! Living in paradise for 5 months is a pretty good deal. :)

Beth S.  – (8 januari 2012 om 06:32)  

BTW, for whatever reason it won't let me reply to one of your previous posts so I just have to tell you that I think Russian is a beautiful language too. I've always thought I was crazy for thinking that but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who feels that way. Russia is #1 at the top of my Bucket List. I want to go there so bad!

Nina  – (8 januari 2012 om 07:56)  

@Beth S.: Yay, another person that loves the Russian language! Me too! I want to visit that country too. Hopefully one day we will!

Wow! That sounds just so amazing! (I wish we had cool internships/study abroads like that for Human Phys students at our school.....) Have fun! =]

Nina  – (10 januari 2012 om 12:16)  

@wdebo: Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. So, so excited. :) You can always travel when you are done with your study. ;)
