Hi there! These are posts that I moved over from Jackie’s old blog, from her summer in Brussels, Belgium interning with the US State Department. Feel free to browse and comment to your heart’s content!
The Dutch have a saying, ‘Doe maar gewoon dan doe je al gek genoeg', which means 'Just act normal, that's weird enough'.
We thought this expression was perfect for the name of our blog as our friends and family will be our readers, and our version of “normal” is definitely weird!
However, it also describes our transition to our new “normal”. Since the Dutch are private people who frown on ostentatious behavior, it might take us a few tries to crack our new home’s code, but we hope you’ll enjoy the adventure with us!
