Merlijn Series Finale
Merlijn Series Finale, hallo hoe gaat het? Every journey has it ends, but the memories and experience will last forever.
It’s Friday December 21st and tomorrow I fly back to The Netherlands. I leave Indonesia behind me and I go back home to my friends and family.
I have had a wonderful semester here at Telkom University and I am grateful that I was provided with this opportunity. The campus has been my home and I have made a lot of new friends during my stay here. Some of those friends will come visit me and my other Dutch friends in The Netherlands next year.
I still can not believe all the amazing things I have seen and done. I have travelled to Bali two times where I saw the most amazing temples and snorkeled with hundreds of tropical fish. I took the bus to Pangandaran where I surfed and swam through canyons. I saw the Borobudur and Prambanan temple in Yogyakarta where I also wandered through all the markets with wonderful clothing and souvenirs. Of course, I also gave Jakarta a visit where I got to enjoy the wonderful history of Batavia.
I have enjoyed the delicious Indonesian cuisine with very tasteful nasi goreng, sate and many more dishes. I must say, I am now used to eating rice everyday but I am also glad I can go home and enjoy some Dutch food again.
During my time at the office I have laughed, tried weird(but mostly tasty) food and completed my internship. The staff was super friendly and I felt comfortable during my time here. Telkom has been a wonderful home to me and to many other students.
For all of this and much more, I would like to thank Telkom University. Thank you for making this an amazing semester abroad which I will never forget. Hope to see you again in the future! For now, I say: Goodbye. Tot ziens.
