Research Abroad!

Hi everyone! This blog will detail what ended up being a rather unexpected trip to the Netherlands. As you may know, I work a lot with study abroad. In fact, I will be bringing a group of students to Barcelona in January. My trip after that, in January of 2018, will be to London and the Netherlands. Having never been to the Netherlands, I wanted to go there and do some research so that I know what I am doing when I put together the study abroad program. It turned out that there is also an international education conference in the Hague on December 1 and 2, so I could go to that conference, then stay a few extra days to research the study abroad program. On top of it all, I was able to secure a grant from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Center for International Education. That means that my trip will be entirely grant funded! So this has worked out spectacularly.

Tomorrow I drive down to Chicago to catch a flight to Atlanta, and from there to Amsterdam. I will arrive on Nov. 30, and the conference is the following two days. I will then spend a couple more days in the Hague visiting international courts, businesses and hotels to find the best options for student travel. Finally, I will spend two days in Amsterdam doing the same.

So, follow me on this unexpected adventure! You can get a sense of what it is like to create a study abroad program, which is quite a bit different from leisure travel. Of course, I will still do fun things and eat great food, because that is the case with any European trip, whether for business or pleasure!

See you on the other side!

Anne
