Here are a few photos from an IES Abroad field-trip to Rotterdam and Kinderdijk. Rotterdam feels like a very modern city, compared to Amsterdam. Rotterdam was bombed during the second world war and was completely destroyed. When the city was given the chance to rebuild, it attracted architects to build a completely “new” city from scratch. You can see elements of experimental architecture all over the city of Rotterdam. After spending the morning in the city, the IES Abroad group then took a scenic boat ride to a small village called Kinderdijk to see the famous windmills. It was a beautiful day and the windmills were stunning!

I am a senior at Ithaca College studying flute performance. This fall, I will be studying abroad in Amsterdam, The Netherlands through IES's program: Conservatorium van Amsterdam- Direct Enrollment. I am beyond thrilled to have this opportunity to learn and grow, not only in my musical abilities, but also in life experience. I am excited to meet and connect with people from around the world, and immerse myself in a new culture.</span></p>
