Your first Dutch friend!
A quick introduction:
My name is Rianne, 33 years young, Dutch, currently living in Amsterdam. I've lived in Istanbul (6 months), Berlin (2 years), Singapore (>3 years). And... dating a super cool Brit called Jamie!
At the moment I am in between jobs and to be honest.... I just miss the expat life. Being surrounded by people with all different cultural backgrounds and stories. I really believe that it broadens your horizons and view on life (equality, empathy etc).
How can I help you?
I would like to help expats who are planning to move or who just moved to the Netherlands. This is why I would like to know:
What are YOUR struggles when moving to the Netherlands?
It can be anything from opening a bank account to finding new friends, to ..I don't know.. knowing what is the cheapest grocery store is. I will find out the answers and write about it on my website: https://ri-direction.com
How can YOU help others?
Already settled (or maybe a Dutchie as well) and you want to help others? Get in touch with me via firstname.lastname@example.org. So that your stories and tips can be shared! Together we can help and empower each other to explore this beautiful world!!!
An expat but not in the Netherlands?
Great! I do believe all expats have similar characteristics like; curiosity, flexibility and they like adventures. Maybe you are not an expat in the Netherlands or a Dutchie, but you still would like to share your story and inspire others to "be brave and explore this beautiful world". Get in touch!
Hope to hear from you soon <3 !
