Today, I bring you a post from one of my best friends, not just in my expat life, but in life in general. Lily of Lily Wanderlust. After all, it isn't many people you down two bottles of wine with over lunch the first time you meet them. I could go on and on about how awesome she is, but I think it might be best for me to just let her speak for herself. Here it goes.
Tell us a bit about you.

I first met Jana at a now defunct book club here in the Netherlands. I thought she was super sweet, and I really wanted to learn more about her, which is why I was so excited when she said she wanted to be part of my For the Love of Travel Series! I hope you have as much fun getting to know Jana through this post as I have. And don't forget to check out her blog over at Breaking One Hundred!

I mentioned a few posts ago that I am reserving my judgment of Berlin until I visit it again on my own. But, I did really really love the East Side Gallery, as much as I loved the artwork, I love the messages written on the wall even more. Here are some of my favorites.
Such a beautiful statement!

This week's post comes from Sarah, a fellow American expat who currently resides in Tillburg (in the Southern part of the Netherlands, for those of you who aren't familiar).She is originally from Virginia (Southern Girls Unite!) I've had so much fun learning about Sarah's adventures and it looks like soon she will be moving closer to my neck of the woods! You can learn more about Sarah at Life in a State of Wanderlust!

I'm back babies! Berlin was crazy. I'm still processing it all. I'm not sure how I feel about the city. I'm going to wait to reserve judgment until I go back with my own agenda and not with my whole class. After all, there wasn't that much time to venture out and see the city on my own. But, I did have a lot of fun bonding with my classmates. I learned some interesting things and now we have some great catch phrases from the trip! Oh, and that salt should never, ever, ever be put on pineapple!

This week, I am introducing you to Amanda a fellow expat here in the Netherlands who blogs over at Poppies and Ice Cream. Amanda is fluent in Spanish and has offered to help me improve my language skills. This is one of the many, many reasons I love having a blog, you get to meet so many interesting people.
Here it goes.

Carolyn is a former colleague and great friend of mine from Georgia. She and her husband Daniel (the one with the epic 'stache) are two of the most creative people you could ever hope to meet. I mean they designed their own wedding invitations, created their own decorations, and perhaps most impressive of all, they made their own wedding bands. So sweet! You can see some of her work at Carolyn Horne Illustration, when she updates it. (hint, hint). Here is Carolyn's story:

You guys, I am so excited to tell you that I am going to be in Berlin from March 6th to 10th! I'm going with my university. It will be my first time in the city, my first time staying in a hostel (I'm so sorry roomies, I snore), and my first time going to a travel industry event! I'll be at ITB, which is the largest show in the travel/tourism industry on the 9th.

*This week, we are going to try things a little differently, mainly because Loek takes issue with my use of orange font! So, the questions will be in bold. Let me know which one you like better.
