A Cycle City

On my way down the hall to make breakfast every morning, I was greeted by my flatmates- "Ciao, Jaclyn! Bonjour! Hola! Hallo!" Living with students from all over the world allowed me to explore cultures and learn something new everyday. Oftentimes, we would cook together or share recipes. My ideas and perspectives were constantly expanding; I became more culturally aware. Italians don't eat pasta for dinner every night, after all, no, the Germans didn't have the cleanest rooms, and yes, regardless of nationality, students have their own unique habits. I continue to carry these memories with me and have become more sensitive to cultural differences.

Rain or shine, cycling prevailed. There were days where I found myself walking into the classroom dripping wet from the rain pouring on me and my bike. The Dutch students were often more prepared when such events occurred. Regardless, cycling became a part of me; my bike was by far one of the most difficult assets to part with. I would cycle from Radboud University's green campus over the bridge to Lent, a complex where the majority of my friends lived. We would make lunch together or wander the local market in the city center to sample fresh cheese. After doing so, we often continued the journey on our bikes to explore various paths in the woods. One time, we cycled all the way to Kleve, a city in Germany!

In the evening, my friends and I would relax in Kronenburger Park, a beautiful park in the city center, where we would quietly watch dogs prance by with their owners. Living in the oldest city in the Netherlands, Nijmegen was rich with history and landmarks. A long day of cycling usually ended by kicking back and enjoying a delicious dinner made with friends. To save money, we would each contribute a food item. If we were in the mood, we would ditch the cooking and go to a local eatery to indulge in friets covered in curry sauce! And to end the night? Well, of course, we would cycle to buy Stroopwafels, only the most delicious dessert ever!

What would you improve about this program?
I would've liked to have a larger kitchen in my apartment complex. Sharing a small kitchen with 16 other hungry students can be quite messy!
