Settling in Maastricht after a year of traveling

Settling in Maastricht after a year of traveling

Inkom 2018

Actually, German Katharina Meyes-Landrut (18) is still not completely sure what to study. That’s why she chose University College. “I like that you can figure out what you want to do along the way. In Germany there is nothing really like this.” Maastricht is not new to her, although it had been a long time since her last visit. “My sister studied here too, but she’s fourteen years older than me. The city has changed a lot since then. The university has become more international and there are more pubs and café’s.”

She is enjoying Inkom so far – “especially the pub crawl” – but her group is “a bit weird. They are fun, but for now, I’ve joined the girls I met at the UCM pre-Inkom picnic.” The one thing she regrets is not taking her bike with her. “I thought it would be nice to still have a bike at home with my parents in Essen, but I haven’t had time to look for a new one since arriving in Maastricht on Sunday evening. Now I have to walk everywhere.”

Meyes-Landrut is looking forward to living on her own, but can’t quite wrap her head around the fact that she will live in the same place for the next three years. “I just had a gap year in which I traveled quite a lot. I started with studying French in France, then did some volunteer work in Thailand and ended with backpacking through South-East Asia. A slow development from very safe to more challenging things – it was better that way, also for my parents, haha.”
