Utrecht, The Netherlands
Before I started my long journey as a long-term traveler, I was working as a Sales Executive for a Dutch Company. I was mainly focused on working for Business & Consultancy companies as I studied mainly International Management & Business at the University of Osnabrueck in Germany.
The lifestyle of Utrecht and the rest of the Netherlands is pretty wild. I spent more or less 3 years of my life balancing out between my part-time job and my studies.
It was an entertaining and interesting profession. I was learning about the Dutch culture, people, way of life, language, and many more. I also had the time to travel to big cities as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the Hague, and Maastricht.
But I surely knew in the future I will work on my own terms and conditions!
It was a major decision in my life and I had the courage to make the shift early in my life to change and re-evaluate my lifestyle and head out of my comfort zone. I wanted to step into the unknown and to know more about it. Those business jobs gave me the courage and passion to follow my dreams. Not to mention a few crazy moments that happened during my journey…
During my trips in the Netherlands, I realized quickly the importance of having a really good bike. I went to different shops to get a decent bike, and was looking for the best deal ever…
It took me some hussle to get the proper on, but when I found it, I was delighted !
I finally decided to opt for the Kent Thruster KZ2600, it’s a Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike and has a lot to give…
The Kent Thruster KZ2600 has some nice features.
- 26-inch full suspension aluminium MTB frame
- Suspension fork 65 mm travel
- Shimano 21 Speed Shifters with Rear Tourney Derailleur
- Front Disc Brake/ Rear Linear Pull Brake
- Allow Wheel Rims
The Kent Thruster KZ2600 was AWESOME TO USE !!!
I went all the way from Maastricht to Amsterdam, visiting Utrecht and seeing amazing views within the Netherlands.
Maastricht & Amsterdam
The Netherlands, especially Amsterdam has an ocenic climate greatly influence by its proximity to the North Sea. I was working and visiting the Netherlands during winter.
From my experience, both winters and summers are considered mild.
Amsterdam is a great place to cycle as the rest of the Netherlands is. Amsterdam is in the western part of the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland.
While I was working as a part-time job for a Dutch company, I also enrolled and studied at the university of applied sciences of Osnabrueck in Germany. Germany is based in the region of Low Saxony and has a lot to offer…
Anyway, in a moment of nostalgia, I wanted to share a few photos from my time studying as an international student for the university of applied sciences of Osnabueck while working for this Dutch company. Enjoy!
