Now that I’m fully settled in The Hague for the next few months, I’m excited to start sharing a bit of my European adventure with you.
It’s been a whirlwind of a month, between moving into my apartment and all the things that go with it, to figuring out what stores sell what items (we really need a Shoppers!), to getting sorted out at work. I’m happy that it’s over with and that I can finally start to discover what life as an expat truly entails.
I promise I’ll have proper reviews of restaurants, town events, and the like coming up soon. But first, I’ll share a few of my photos to get you better acquainted.
As you’ll recall, I spent three weeks living here in July (and blogged about it here), so I had a bit of knowledge on the best eats in the city and the best streets for wandering.
Within the first week, I had already visited Little V, for a feast on pork skewers and fried rice.
And the week after that, I joined a group at Garoeda for a rice table.
And while I’ve been mostly sticking to home cooking, I’ve taken the time to find a cheese shop nearby, and, to grab an apple strudel when the rainy weather called for it.
But, it hasn’t been all eats & treats.
I’ve gotten acquainted with the city centre, touring through the pedestrian streets and admiring the architecture.
And making sure to pass some of the more important buildings in the city.
It’s stunning to be here during the holidays, and I’ll be sure to take some proper photos on my weekend jaunts around town.
Outside the city centre, I managed to make my way down to the beach on a cloudy morning. Which now, free of sunbathers, is the perfect off-leash dog park.
But of course, the best part about being here is that it’s so close to so many other cool towns & the ability to travel is way easier than an 8 hour flight. So with that, stay tuned for where I decided to visit first.
