Happy Christmas from Amsterdam!

It snowed here last week and I got caught in a storm on my way home through the Erasmus park in Amsterdam west. I was glad I was just five minutes away from a warm apartment and not slithering in my car on the A10 (Amsterdam’s ring road) or out doing hard, physical work, or worst of all, homeless. It’s definitely the time of year to look back and count one’s blessings.

The weather has gone back to normal now and the fairytale snow has all melted. The photo of the Christmas tree above, was taken in the beautiful English Reformed Church in het Begijnhof. If any expats are feeling like a taste of home over the festive season there will be a Christmas Eve service held there on 24 December at 10pm. But go early as it’s VERY popular.

To round of this wonderful year, dear blog-lovers, it only remains for me to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Don’t forget to head down to the the Rijksmuseum and get your skates on in 2018!
