Dutched Up

d5d8f-dutched2bup25212bback2bcover I am proud to introduce Dutched Up!: Rocking the Clogs Expat Style which I have contributed to. It’s an expat anthology about life in the Netherlands. I write about friendship, the wonderful thing that is Dutch kraamzorg and last but not least a chapter called ‘My Beautiful Dutch Wedding’.

I am just one of many expat bloggers in the Netherlands who contributed stories to Dutched Up!, an anthology about living in the Netherlands as a foreigner. The stories are heartfelt, honest, funny and sad.


“With its tall buildings and tulip-lined canals, the Netherlands is a wonderful place to visit. But what happens when you move there instead? We asked a group of expat women to share their stories about moving to the land of windmills. From wondering why everyone’s curtains are open, to stealing back bicycles, to struggling to get doctors to take you seriously, to having babies, making friends and learning to get along with Dutch colleagues, these women did not hold back in telling their tales of life in the Netherlands.”

Dutched Up Expat Anthology book cover

“A collection of essays by expat bloggers in The Netherlands opened my eyes to how tall the Dutch are, how complicated their language is, how blunt their words are, how they steal bikes left and right, how their doctors don’t really want to see you, and how stress and worry free they are when it comes to their kids.” Amazon review by Olivia C
