Links I Love Vol. 5 Why You Should Visit Holland.

Links I Love

In the year and a half that I have lived in the Netherlands, the Verlo and I have had two guests. My mom and my godmother. This makes me really sad, because I miss my friends and family and I love it here so much, I want to show everyone my life. I understand though, if I would have followed a traditional path in life, I would have graduated with the rest of my friends at the height of the recession. We are all trying to figure out how to bounce back from entering the job market at a terrible time. I also come from the South, where compared to other places in the Western World, people get married and have babies at a much younger age. I'm so proud of the lives my friends are carving out for themselves. And, I know that how eventually I will have money to make it back to visit them more often (I'm going back for the first time in August) they too will eventually save and make it over here as well. 

A little incentive never hurts though right? Here is this great video on why Holland is awesome. I hope that this video will not only inspire those of you who are my friends to come visit, but also those of you I don't actually know, who want to learn more about the Netherlands.

This video sums up so many of the amazing and special things about Holland - made me smile  :)

I love it too! We missed you on Sunday, hopefully you can make the next one, or we can make a plan to hang out. 

I love that video! I love reading your blog. Sometimes it seems like there aren't many expat blogs written by expats who are really happy about where they are. You have such a positive voice.

Oh my gosh, thank you for leaving me such an amazingly sweet comment. I do love it here, but I think a lot of it is because I think that this is my choice and I am determined to make the best of it.
