Two weekends ago I headed to Amsterdam on a little solo adventure. I had been to this fabulous city before (as well as many hours logged at the Airport) but this was the first time since living here that I boarded a train alone for a mini-vacation.
As an Expat and writer who spends most of my time at home alone, I was really longing to make some new friends. One day I stumbled upon this blog written by another American living in the Netherlands. Along with her friend, she started an Expat Bloggers Brunch- a group that meets once a month to exchange ideas and generally muss about Expat life in the Netherlands. I got bold and emailed her and invited myself to the gathering.
I am SO glad that I went! It was an amazing experience to meet other Expats who were writers, living in Holland (usually with Dutch boyfriends or husbands) and realize I am not alone. It was such an inspiring experience, and I truly look forward to cultivating friendships with these fabulous ladies. If you are interested, listed below are their blogs:
