Ten years ago I stepped off a British Airways flight and began my life in Holland. At the time I did not realize that this was what it was. Back then I thought it was just the beginning of the next six months of my life in Holland but I have been here for over a third of my life now.
And I am so happy that Holland has become my home. At the beginning I was not always thrilled about it and for a while when the honeymoon period was initially over I down right hated it. But luckily I stuck with it and discovered so much to love about the country. It’s still hard being away from my family and friends at times but I visit them when ever I can. I’ve also made new friends here who mean a lot to me and most importantly of all I met my wife who I love dearly (I told my self I would not cry).
I look forward to continuing my life in Holland and would like to thank everyone who has supported me for these past ten years. Thank you. You know who you are.
