I am learning French (I'm not quite at intermediate level but trying to get there). For the last two years I have been taking trips to The Netherlands (one of our publishing offices is in Utrecht). I LOVE The Netherlands (the quiet; the bikes; the canals; the painting; the architecture; the culture). I've also been trying to fit in side trips to France and Belgium.
Well, you know the Samuel Johnson quote: 'when a man is tired of London he is tired of life'. It's a true observation I think. I've lived here all my adult life and each year I love it more because London is a city where you can live exactly the life you choose. You don't even need to be rich since many of London's beautiful buildings, parks, art galleries and outdoor concerts are completely free.
Hi, my name is Sally. I am English with Scottish roots and a great liking for the low countries.
