I was catching up with expat blogs this morning and was particularly charmed by the retrospectives on 2012 that a number of Netherlands-based expats posted. Lily posted snapshots, Jessica compiled lists of favorites, Meredith shared vacation (and wedding) pictures, and, my favorite, Elloise posted some wonderful reflections.
After a wearying week of teaching, visa-ing, business-ing, traveling, and untangling a host of pretty petty issues, it was really nice to read everyone’s good experiences.
I enjoyed an extra cup of coffee and smiled a bit looking out the windows, thinking of the many remarkable people, stories, experiences, and opportunities of the past year.
‘and the many to come.
