February 4, 2012
Originally from the UK but now in NL since 2000 (via Boston, Santa Barbara and Toronto). I'm running a tourism management course for international students at a university near Amsterdam. Married to my lovely Dutch wife with two kids (2 & 4).
To meet the intersting people I know are out there, but can't seem to meet!
Thanks for the bonus questions Linda!
Hello Zac, thank you for the message - yes, I think we have a match on the children right there!
Well, it's raining today - which is typical UK Northern weather so perhaps I brought the showers...? hope to get the Hilversum sun back tomorrow.
Yes, if you are around in July give me a shout - a meet up of the families would be great & the August date is in the diary. Thanks again for your reply, I'll get up to speed on navigating the site / how to connect - hope I have responded correctly! Hannah
I confirmed my coming to the next meetup but I realized later that you are all expats. I am not and therefore I wonder if this meetup is interesting for me or for you guys for me to show up. What do you think?
Kind regards, Marianne
Good morning, Zac,
thank you for the kind welcome! We will not be able to attend the coming meetup (no nanny in such a short notice!). But our AuPair will arrive in January so me and my husband are looking forward to meet you and your community next time.
What a lovely little one you have! Congratulations!
Till soon, I hope and kind regards,
Thanks for the welcome message, I’m from Haarlem. But I will be in Hilversum next week for the bowling match, I’m looking to meet new people and have some nice outings.
Cya next week.
Hi Zac. Thanks for joining my start-up meet-up group. I sent the members an email asking for suggestions on venue selection. Once I have this nailed I hope to plan the first meet-up. Hope you had a good summer and see you soon!
I will join in September (I will be on holiday for the August meetup). Really looking forward to meeting some other expats in Hilversum!
Hi Zac. Thanks for the welcome. I look forward to meeting you and some fellow International Hilversummers in September. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this month because I'll be in... wait for it... Santa Barbara enjoying some sunshine and reliving my days as a college student at UCSB. :)
Hi Zac! What a lovely Meetup Group you have here! We featured a photo from one of your recent Meetups on the Meetup HQ blog: http://meetupblog.meetup.com/post/268... Just wanted to share that with you. It really looks like you're building a nice, solid communityand we just wanted to say thank you and let you know you're doing a great job. We wish you and your Meetup Group all the best! --Tegan, Meetup HQ
Thanks Zac - much appreciated. Looking forward to the August event, but it's a shame I missed July by a day...do we only do events once a month?
