My name is Maria and I’m British. I am 24 and slightly obsessed with all things Dutch.
Once upon a time some eight years ago I discovered the Netherlands and gradually fell in love with all things Dutch. After indulging in many little trips to and from Holland during my student days I am now in a position to fully accept and admit my undying love for the country, the culture, the food (well some of it) and their general way of life. I survived this long without speaking any of the language, it is time to pull my finger out!
When looking on the internet for blogs and guides to The Netherlands and the Dutch language I really struggled to find anything hence where my original idea for this blog came from. I do ramble on and I can’t really promise that everything I post will be all that fantastic but I started using this space to chart my learning progress and share any useful tips I learn along the way, then i began to use it as a way to introduce people to the epic-ness of the country and other odd random posts because, well…just because. You can also find my opinionated self over at The Dutch Review. Its a great source for information and tips! Check it out! I believe that opinion sharing is vital for a healthy society, I believe that everyone has an opinions (yes even the ones who say they don’t!) and I would just like this space to be somewhere we can all have a chin wag about things and be buddies.
Thank you for taking the time out to read, comment and show such an interest in Dutch and the things I have to say. Life is complicated enough without sharing the love every once in a while right?!
Lets get cracking then!
