Amanda van Mulligan writes the Letter from the Netherlands blog, a literate and insightful series of essays on her experiences as a writer in Zoetermeer. She’s on maternity leave this month, and asked her expat readers to contribute guest submissions around the theme of “Highs and lows of your expat experience”.
It’s been fun to read the responses from the various bloggers that I follow, and the way that everyone’s experiences balance out. My contribution, comparing the difficulty of being part of a business shutdown to the joys of having my daughter visit, was posted yesterday. The series is worth enjoying, and is probably about midway through it’s run.
(And good luck Amanda!)
