Introduction: Moving to The Netherlands!

Hi!!! 

I just wanted to make a quick introduction!  My name is Angelina and I am a southern girl through and through.  My husband and I have both lived in Louisiana our enitre lives, but we have traveled to 13 countries and several caribbean islands and we are looking forward to the next chapter in our lives!

The next chapter: My husband and I will be relocating to The Netherlands for his job and I am excited to hopefully get some insight on not only The Netherlands, but also on being an expatriate in general (especially those that have done this with children!)!  We have two little boys (a 17 month old and a 6 week old!). 

We just found out that we may have to be there by this summer; so it will be a very quick move!!  I am excited and scared at the same time!! 

 I am sure that I will have a lot of questions as this moves forward, but for now:

Hi, my name is Angelina and I will be joining you ladies very soon!! :)

Re: Introduction: Moving to The Netherlands!

  • Welcome welcome!  DH and I are Americans living in the Netherlands for work as well!  Where in the NL are you moving to?  If you have any questions, feel free to ask.  We have a decent sized group of NL ladies on here!

  • Hello and welcome! I'm American (TX) and living in France with my French DH. Congrats on the upcoming move! There are lots of ladies in the NL and plenty of expat moms on here. I'm sure they will be very helpful
  • First, props to you on raising 2 boys under 2! My older brothers are 15 months apart and I have so much respect for my mom after being around kids more. ;) My girls are 25 months apart and it's still challenging at times, but I wouldn't change a thing! Unfortunately for you, I was already living over here when I had them so I have no advice on moving with kids, but the forum in general is a great resource even if I'm not!

    I've also never been to the Netherlands (though many Americans seem to think Danish and Dutch are the same thing, so maybe that counts? ;) ) but I like to welcome people to our group, so welcome! 

  • Hi and welcome! H and I are Americans living in London, we've been here 2+ years. I can't help with moving to NL but good luck and there are quite a few ladies on the board who I'm sure can answer those questions!
  • Welcome!  H and I are Americans living in Phnom Penh Cambodia.  Congrats and best of luck with the move - I'm sure a lot of the Netherlands ladies around here can give you great advice.
