I'm Patrick Matthews and I have decided to spend a year abroad in the Netherlands with AFS instead of going to college right away so I will be trying to keep this updated so people can see what's goin down in Holland. I will be deferring my matriculation to Tulane University in New Orleans to have a blast - I mean learn - in the Netherlands.
When I first started of taking a gap year the first people I obviously turned to were the AFS people I know and love. I myself am a returnee from the 2008 Summer Homestay to Panama! I had a really great time and wouldn't trust any other group with planning my year abroad.
Here's to hoping everything goes swimmingly!
