The last few months have been quite uncertain for most of us. Due to the corona crisis, our lives have not been the same.

Studying in the Netherlands has recently risen in popularity in my home country, Bulgaria. Just in NHL Stenden alone, there are well-over 100 Bulgarians, in all of the courses that the university has to offer. More
The weather in the Netherlands is known to be unpredictable. Sunshine in one moment and rain in the next. To add to this, the flat landscape leaves no obstacles for wind.

When hearing the name NØRD most people think of Scandinavia but in Leeuwarden, it means something else. NØRD is a beautiful café and concept store in the Sint Jacobsstraat. The store first opened its doors in March 2018 after Gerard and Suus, the owners moved to Leeuwarden from Amsterdam. The couple decided to start their own business in Leeuwarden because they “saw potential in the city” with it being the cultural capital of the year. Before opening, there were no other places with the same idea of inviting their customers to stay a bit longer and enjoy a good cup of coffee before or after browsing the assortment of sustainable and local products.

Hallo! My name is Lisa and I’m 19 years old. I come from the very north of Germany, near Kiel and about two months ago I moved to Leeuwarden to study here. Half a year ago I decided on studying Creative Business at NHL Stenden and I’ll presumably stay here for about 4 years until I finish my Bachelors Degree. I chose to come to Leeuwarden because of the university that offers degrees I couldn’t find similarly at any German university. Furthermore, I decided on the Netherlands because I have always been interested in speaking a lot of English and having a lot of international possibilities in the future. More

But there is more to Cambuur than just the players. No, there are the supporters who form the spine of the club and are always present. Whether it’s going good or bad or whether the weather is nice or not. Today I sat down with Johan De Vries a board member and co-founder of the supporters club called: ‘Cambuur Culture’.
There is a gym in Leeuwarden which is not owned by big brands but by two people with a love for fitness.
