Living in Europe is pretty fantastic, but at times can be very frustrating. Everyday I experience a new language, new food, different music, strange cultural habits, and a very different point of reference. The Dutch are at their best, extremely innovative, amazing debaters, and well read/traveled. At their worst they can be rude, arrogant (it seems as though everything has been invented by a Dutchie..), and cheap. Anyhow, through this blog I want not only to share my trails and triumphs in cultural immigration, but also relay the artistic highlights of The Netherlands and Europe. With that said, you can expect foamy cappuccinos, stellar fashion, crazy bikes, electro music, and Dutch masters to come. So sit back, grab a tiny cup of coffee, and enjoy the ride!

Hoi! I am Helen, from Connecticut USA, currently residing in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I have been a ballerina, a travel agent, a college student, and an intern at the fashion label Versace. I am currently an Au Pair, a girlfriend, and a traveller. I would like to be an entrepreneur, a travel writer (& successful blogger!), and a speaker of foreign languages. Join me in my discovery of all things cultural, beautiful and weird in Europe!
