And now we’ve to Belgium. Chocolate, beer and music festivals. There goes my productivity!
An Indian journalist who moved to the Netherlands in 2012, I have a passion for writing and a penchant for silliness. A lot of the articles you will find here are a chronicle of my experiences as an expat – from buying shampoo labelled in Dutch thinking it’s body lotion to making friends with the local Delft pig, Bob.
The blog also includes articles I write for magazines and websites based in India and around the Netherlands. They cover a wide-range of topics that might help you (and me) navigate life in the Netherlands; whether it’s trying your first shot of jenever, experiencing total darkness at the Maastricht caves or learning the right football slogans (Hup Holland Hup!)
My husband and I love travelling and I’ve been taking notes and collecting maps everywhere. One day I hope to write a post about the Titian walks in Venice or one on the hidden Madonna and Child in Brugges. I’m a world class procrastinator though, so I might end up doing nothing.
I will, however, link you to one of my favourite Dutch songs. Have fun!
(Ps: I moved from Blogger to Wordpress sometime back. But I love the custom headers from my previous blogs. Do check them out!)
