Hello and thanks for visiting my blog! As you can see it’s a journal of my travels, experiences, and observations living as an expat in Amsterdam. Not only am I getting familiar with the Dutch culture, but I also have a job that takes me all over Europe.
Prior to this insane experience, I was just your average 30-something. I am originally from Southern California but moved to Reno, NV in my early 20’s. If you’d asked my father about me as a child, he’ll tell you that he was afraid I’d never have a life or friends and he was right at the time. All that changed when I was pushed from the nest and out of my comfortable surroundings, forced to go to college. I didn’t know it at the time, but it was the best thing that could have happened. Since then I’ve opened up and grown quite a bit. My hope is that this experience living, working, and traveling abroad will have the same effect.
Thanks for taking the time to read a bit about me and I hope you enjoy this reading journal as much as I enjoy living it. And please don’t forget to leave feedback, comments, or questions (aka quemments).
