Happy New Year

It’s been a busy year with a lot of changes. I moved to the country side of Frisland and made it official by getting a Frisian passport. I committed my first criminal offence. My three year old daughter taught me the kind of Dutch words they don’t teach you in language school. I learned to queue like a Dutchman and how to go camping like one too. I discovered unicorns at Rotterdam zoo and had an encounter with a Frisian swan. I survived a Dutch heat wave and a children’s circle party (luckily not at the same time). I learned how to spot tourists in Amsterdam and finally discovered how truly intimate a bike ride in Holland can be. It’s been a busy year but I wouldn’t change anything.

Next year will be even busier with all the surprises that are coming up later… but those are all stories for next year. I’m sure I’ll have lots to share.

I hope you all had a great year too and will have an even better 2016. Thank you again for reading the stories about my weird expat life and laughing along with me. See you in the New Year.
