Introductions!

Posted in South Holland forum

Hi All!

Just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Kate and I will be arriving in Leiden in August to work toward my MA. I like art, food, and wine...if anyone wants to hang out in Leiden I'm up to meeting new friends!

    Hello everyone

    Hi all,

    I too am looking to meet new friends here in Leiden. I have put other posts up 'Looking for Friends'.

    Is anyone still wanting to meet up?

    I love going to the movies, visiting Museums, Painting and anything artistic. I also like to get out and about. For example taking cycling trips.

    You can contact me at my email address [...]

    Best,
    Hannah

    Hi Emily!

    Hey Emily,

    I just read your post as well as your profile. Have you lived in the Netherlands before at all? I will tell you that it is not easy to be able to stay here and get a visa. I am here because I am married to a Dutch man. I know that Kate is here under a student visa. Unfortunately, Americans cannot just come here and stay, get a job, etc. It's a bit more complicated than that. I'd love to help ya out in any way I can, answer any questions you may have, etc. Just let me know! :)

    Take care,
    Jess

    I think it is awesome that you are living abroad. I am also trying to do so. Any advice, or good sites to find jobs or living situations? Do you speak dutch very well?

    Hey Jales!

    I just read your post. I would love to meet up sometime, if you would like to. I know how difficult it can be to live in another country and not know anyone. I live in Dordrecht, which isn't too far from Leiden. Btw, I love your blog! I would love to talk more with you about it sometime. Let me know!

    Take care,
    Jess

    I also live in Leiden, I speak only english and have absolutely no friends here. I would love to meet when you get here. The only person I know is my husband, he is German. We both live here. It would be nice to make a friend.
