Actually, I’ve never been to the Netherlands. Instead, I chose to go to Yemen (I’m not a terrorist), Ireland, and to Latvia/Lithuania when I traveled abroad while friends went to Mexico and Costa Rica…which made sense, as at the time I was a Spanish major in college. Oh life, you’re funny.
My friend Kaitlin, whom I met after moving to Georgia, now lives in the Netherlands. She fell in love with someone and moved to his home country. Though she’s across an ocean and a great deal of land, Kaitlin and I use our blogs to keep in touch. She can log on here to see what I’m discussing about Arie, and I can log on her blog, A Georgia Peach Abroad, to check and see how Loek, her husband to be, and their apartment are faring, as well as what Kaitlin has learned recently about her new homeland.
Kaitlin is in the middle of a photo project for the month of March, and today’s entry focuses on someone she’s spoken with today. We were chatting on Facebook when she was writing and she decided to write about me. I never post pictures of myself on here, mostly because I usually look like a hot mess when I’m photographing Arie, but Kaitlin asked for a photo of me to use in her post (so you can see what my picture looks like in the Netherlands! Love that corny humor, don’t you?). Most of the time what you learn about someone is through their About Me page and how they interact on the web. If you want to get me know me a little better, and check out an amazing blog about the Netherlands, read Kaitlin’s post to get another person’s perspective.
Being able to keep in touch with Kaitlin, as well as the awesome Aussies, Spaniards, Englishman, and more that I’ve met through Life with Arie via our blogs is wonderful. Who do you keep in touch with from abroad? Share your favorite blogs that aren’t from your country in a comment so we can check them out. Happy Sunday, everyone!
