Announcing May's Expat Blogger Brunch

With the success and general merriment of our last blogger brunch, Lily and I have already started organizing the May edition. Open to bloggers of all ages, expat, and blogging experiences, won't you join us on May 19th for brunch in Amsterdam? 

Just as a refresher, here are the aims of the brunches:

  • Generate a creative, social form
  • Expand experiences abroad through a network of expat bloggers in the Netherlands
  • Cultivate Social Media contacts into real life connections
  • Exchange ideas, suggestions and support about and within the expat community
  • Inspire each other through topic discussions and special events

Sound like your cup of tea? Just be one of the first 15 people to RSVP by May 10th and you are in! Just send your reply to


Friday Links I Love Vol. 1

Links I Love

I read an impossible number of blogs. After all, I was an Online Content Manager in another life. I am obsessed and if any of my favorite bloggers recommend another blog, I will not hesitate to read them. Which is why I decided to spread the love around and have a Links I Love post on Fridays. I think it is only fitting that my first edition would be based on the ladies who attended mine and Lily's Expat Blogger Brunch. I honestly love reading these ladies blogs, and I think you will enjoy them as well.

Lily of Lily Wanderlust: Whether she is writing about daily life in Amsterdam, or sharing some of her great travel adventures, Lily is such a vibrant and energetic person and that even translates very well on her blog. She also loves Amsterdam and loves to show of some of the different sides of the city that you have to be a local to know about. 

Monique of Mo Travels: Mother, runner, social media enthusiast, expat. These are just some of the things that descibe Monique. Check out her blog for all her travels and to see what life is like for an expat who has really established roots.

Allison of The Nomad Cooks: After spending a few years in Asia, Allison is making a pit stop in Amsterdam before moving on to other places. Take in her blog for all her marvelous adventures. 

Amanda of Poppies and Ice Cream and Tartas y Pinceles: Amanda is a truly sweet girl from Mexico who now lives with her hubby in Den Haag (The Hague) You can follow her personal blog, or check out her new business venture, CAKES! 

Emily of  The Dutch Tales: Fresh off the boat and living in my neck of the Netherlands, check out Emily's newly established blog for another view on the surrounding Utrecht area. 

Sarah of Life in a State of Wanderlust: You may remember Sarah from my For the Love of Travel Series. She just recently moved from the South of the Netherlands to the beautiful town of Haarlem. She loves soccer and Spanish and really misses cheez-its. Don't we all!

Gaby of Holland Daze: Gaby was one of the first expats I met here in the Netherlands. In fact, we even started talking on twitter before I moved! Gaby lives in Den Haag. I love her blog and maybe if I get her some more hits she will start blogging again more often?
