There were many days this winter when my train was almost a half hour late. On a couple of occasions it was cancelled altogether! This satire is much funnier now that we have a car.
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!
