About me

My name is Annette den Boer and I’m going to spend my exchange year in Ecuador. The departure date is august 19th, so it’s less than a week!

I’ve made this blog to keep my family and friends all over Europe updated about my experiences in Ecuador. So, that’s the reason I’m writing this blog in english. My family in the Netherlands and in Norway doesn’t speak German. I’m not a native english speaker, so I’m sorry for my writing faults. But I’m sure whoever is interested in reading my blog, will understand me. At least I hope so 🙂

My host family lives in Portoviejo. That’s a city about 30 km. away from the coast with approx. 180’000 inhabitants. The temperatures there are always about 25-30 degrees Celcius, I guess that will be a challenge for me. My host parents are both quite young and I have a host sister of 3 years, whom i will share room with. So it is all very exciting.

The last few days before my flight are being quite stressful, beause there is really much to organize. But I’m already looking forward to arrive in Quito.

I’m going to write a new post as soon as I’ve arrived in Ecuador.

That’s it for now, Greetings 🙂
