Our new Dutch adventure begins. This blog will start off more to document our life for friends and family. As I get more comfortable, maybe some tips for expats. Internet is spotty right now, since we don’t have our own yet. It takes around 2 weeks to set up, and you need a Dutch (or IBAN number) bank account to set it up, and you can’t get a Dutch account until you get your BSN number, which is at least 6 weeks. Vicious circle.
So far, everyone has switched to English as soon as I say hello. We’ve spent the first few days fighting jet lag and getting acclimated, learning to grocery shop, yes, I said learning. I love the tram system, but my sense of direction is so far horrible.
