I’m in a Book: Introducing Dutched Up!

by farrah on November 11, 2014 · 13 comments

So this is kind of exciting….I haven’t said anything about it since it just seems unreal. Basically, by some dumb luck I found myself in a wonderful group of all women Netherlands bloggers. This group started talking about putting together a book on expat life from our perspective in the NL. We discussed, we wrote, we contributed.

Lo and behold, as of  today the book written by several NL expat bloggers is available on Amazon with 52 contributions of Dutch goodness: Dutched Up! Rocking the clogs expat style.

 If you click the image you will go to the Amazon store.

So that’s pretty fun for a Tuesday, eh?

I think so.


  • If you’re coming to the Netherlands as an expat- get this book.
  • If you were an expat in the Netherlands- get this book.
  • If you’re Dutch and want to know what a bunch of other people think of your country- get this book.
  • If you like to read and experience a new way of life through the experience of others- get this book.
  • If you’re my relative and want to see your grandchildren/nephews/etc. attend college- get this book. (Kidding! That’s what sports scholarships are for.)

I’m curious as to what you think! It will be available as well in print form (my personal favorite) so I’ll let you know when you can get that too.

*Affiliate links abound for this book back to me. Just a FYI. I expect to be making millions, so thank you in advance!

It’s pretty crazy- we started so long ago, I can’t believe it’d real. Can’t wait to get my hands on the print copy with all of our names 🙂

I am excited too. I knew you would continue writing ever since you wrote that article in 5th grade about Saving the Ducks at Mill Pond.

Ha! I’ll let you know when the print version is out!

My husband’s mom was from Holland.

Proficiat! Heel goed gedaan! Congrats, to you all. As an expat living in the Netherlands, and as someone who enjoys reading about a new way of life via the experience of others, I just can’t wait to read the book!!

Do you have a rough idea of when it will be available in print form?


13 farrah December 10, 2014 at 7:04 am

I do not Monica, thank you for asking! I want my own copy as well so I’ll check with the group today and see if I can get an answer. I’ll email you 🙂
