We’ve officially arrived in Amsterdam! It’s been exactly two weeks, and we are adjusting to the Dutch life. Currently, we’re in temporary housing just outside of the city, and we move into our new apartment in the heart of Amsterdam this Friday! We will be living in the Jordaan area, which is so beautiful, quaint, and surrounded by the canals. I am looking forward to unpacking our suitcases and getting settled in our new home for the next two years.
Our first couple weeks have consisted of getting our visas, Andrew starting work, getting our dog from the U.S. (biggest hassle and crazy expensive, but of course, worth it), exploring the streets of Amsterdam, understanding the train system, searching high and low for a curling iron, trying new restaurants, buying bikes, looking for an apartment, and entertaining our first guests, my aunt and uncle.
I am not a writer or blogger, and I am still figuring out what I want this blog to be. For now, I will share what we’ve been up to, and the things we’ve done and seen thus far.
