Park Camping

I think it's funny that Dutch people go camping in parks that are in the middle of the city.

Hey, I found your blog via GetRichSlowly. I'm also an American that is learning, so it was super interesting. I actually read all your entries about living in the Netherlands this morning instead of working, haha.

I actually started learning because I got a job with Rosetta Stone right out of college working to test the new version of their software, TOTALe. I thought it was pretty bad but it gave me a good jump start, which I then expanded with Anki, dutchgrammar.com, going to meetup groups, etc.

Anyway, it was interesting to read about your experiences and nice to see that you don't sugarcoat everything like some people do during their time abroad. Life as an expat is not easy and it's cool to see that your Dutch is getting really good and you're integrating into society, which can be hard in the Netherlands from what I gather.

Soon I'm going to be in a similar situation as you, I'm leaving my job and moving to Spain to be a European for at least a few years.

I added your blog to my RSS feed so I'm definitely going to keep reading.

Peace!
