About the Author

I’m Lesley, an Aussie Expat living in Amsterdam after spending 3 years living in London as a base for my travels. Travel is my middle name.

My new life in Amsterdam pairs my love of travel with my love of adventure, planting myself in a foreign land where I do not (yet) speak the native language of Dutch – all for my Dutch boyfriend (aka ‘the Hunk’).

The Hunk and I met while staying at a hostel in Marrakech, Morocco. My friend and I were sitting at breakfast, and so too was the un-identified hunk and his friend. He looked up and said “Hi, my name is *Hunk*” and as he has a very Dutch name I thought “what did he say his name was?! Oh well, just go along with it, he’s cute!”

Sure enough, he must have also thought I was cute and we ended up at a group meal in the evening where we sat opposite each other sharing meals, essentially on our first date. So, after our first date in Morocco, it was a game of long-distance for 1.5 years before this gal grew the balls to start her life again in another new city!

Follow along as I explore new places (mostly in Europe) during my weekends, making sure I see everywhere in a short time and eat as much delicious local food that I can!

  2. Hi, Glad I came across this blog. I have recently moved to the Netherlands from New Zealand. not speaking one word of dutch or having an idea of the lifestyle. I have a dutch passport so the move permanently interested me.

    Glad to see that it is possible to feel at home in a foreign land! I will be sure to stay updated with your Journey!
