Ready, set, go! On the 1st of February I will be on my way to London to start my first real adventure abroad. After arranging a lot of paperwork and other obligations I can finally tell you all my comings and goings about my internship in the beautiful and very busy capital of England. Yes, London’s calling!
About Dust PR
Let start with the most important information, which obviously, is where I will be doing my internship for a period of 15 weeks. I will arrive in the heart of London on Friday, the 1st of February, but officially does my internship start at Wednesday, the 6th of February. Which is in less than a month, oh my god! Can you believe it? ‘Cause for me it still feels like I’m dreaming…
The PR agency where I’m hired as an intern is Dust PR.

Location: Falkland Road
The second important thing on my to-do list was finding a good place to stay. My first conclusion after googling residences for a couple of hours; London is so expensive. An apartment on my own was unaffordable, most of the student rooms were full and if I came across something more cheap, I had to travel more than an hour to my internship. But you know what they say; persistence pays off.
After searching for more than a month, I finally came across the perfect residence. A Flat Share in Kentish Town, a smaller village, in North London and part of Camden. I will stay in a house with 4 different rooms, a kitchen, a living room, 2 bathrooms and a garden. I rent a double room. It’s a good alternative because now I won’t be all on my own and I can surround myself with housemates who also spend a couple of months in London. We can cook together and go out in the weekends, help each other with problems, discover the city and so on.
In short: I can’t wait to arrive, get te know everyone and start with my internship.
Let the adventure begin, I’m ready!
Lots of love,
