I have been living in the Netherlands for exactly six months. I can’t believe it. Here’s a quick summary of what I’ve done, and what’s to come.
I’ve lived in two Dutch cities, soon to be three! (We move to Laren in May.)
I visited Germany.
I just got back from a two-week trip to Spain with the family.
I love that alternative forms of transportation have become a part of my everyday life.
Ice skating on a LAKE!
Carnaval was my first couchsurfing experience, and one of my favorite weekends so far.
Here are some of my favorite places in the Netherlands:
And here’s a taste of my upcoming adventures:
A weekend visit to The Hague to go to this film festival, hosted by Amnesty International.
A food foraging expedition in Amsterdam.
Queen’s Day is rapidly approaching (April 30), and promises to be a day to remember — especially since Queen Beatrix is set to abdicate her throne on that day to her son, Prince Willem-Alexander.
A trip to London in May to see Noah and the Whale perform.
My lovely friend Jackie is visiting in July – I may even be able to see her during my birthday!
I sincerely hope I can attend La Tomatina in August. If anyone else wants in, let me know.
