I've Got a Secret......

Do you like House Hunters International?  Do you like to try and guess which place they pick to live?  Have you ever wondered what it's like after the show is over and people actually start to live in another country?  Because we've done just that!  We've packed our suitcases and moved to Amsterdam.

What?  How did that happen?  Well, when I retired from the corporate world a few years ago, I happily said goodbye and never thought I'd go back to working for a big company.

But a sudden job opportunity came up, that I really couldn't say no to - at least for a little while.  And a big part of the attraction - the job was in Amsterdam.  So we headed across the Atlantic.


I'd love to share our story as we found a place to live, decorated it, learned how to get around and try life as Europeans.  It's been quite the experience!!!  If there's interest, I could also share a little travelogue - as we'll try and do some exploring while we're here.

Of course we'll be back to SoPo before you know it, but for a little while - we'll share our adventure of life in a different country!
