Hi. This blog is about starting a new life in Sydney, Australia, with my husband Marcel and our two kids, Sebastiaan (6 years) and Julia (4 years). I write this blog for people who want to experience Sydney like we do.

  • Walk Safely to school day Sydney
    on May 20, 2011 in walking cycling KIds
    Walking is not something kids like to do. My kids are no exception. In Holland this wouldn't be an issue because children cycle to school and get enough exercise.It's different in Sydney unfortunately. Sydney is not a cycle friendly city. It's fine f...
  • La Nina gone!
    on May 17, 2011 in Weather
    This morning, I read the best news ever in the Sydney Morning Herald. La Nina is - almost - gone! After a few months of very unpredictable weather, the forecasters now confirmed that the weather pattern will return to 'neutral'. We've had a summer wi...
  • Lost rabbit
    on Nov 23, 2010 in KIds
    When Julia was born we started with two identical blue rabbits. They were a present from our Dutch health insurer. It was easy to have two cuddles because I could put one in the washing machine while she kept the other one with her. When she was two,...
  • Winter in Sydney
    on Jul 20, 2010 in Weather
    I'm fed up with the winter. The trouble is that winter in Sydney is quite complex. In the Netherlands it is much easier to endure. When you wake up in the morning you know it will be another cold day and you prepare for that by putting on a lot of wa...
  • We have a new prime minister
    on Jun 23, 2010 in Politics Soccer
    To my surprise, I read in the newspaper this morning that 'we' are likely to have a new prime minister today. I just came back from tennis, and I hear on the radio that the current prime minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, has stepped down. He will be...
  • Its dark outside ..
    on Jun 22, 2010
    I don't want to sound depressed but I guess I suffer from the "dark days before Christmas syndrome". This is not surprising because the days in Sydney are extremely short this week. Today it was already pitch dark at 4.50 p.m. Its also raining. Yes,...
  • Canberra
    on Jun 15, 2010 in Activities Queens_day holiday
    This weekend we visited Canberra. We didn't really know what to expect but as a newcomer to the country we felt we had to go to the Australian Capital to know what it is really like. We went this weekend on a very short two day trip. It's 300 ki...
  • Dutch soccer in Sydney
    on Jun 15, 2010 in Soccer
    Last night the Dutch played against Denmark. We watched the match in the Holland House in Darling Harbour.  It - almost - felt as if I was back in Holland. Lot's of orange and of course the Dutch food specialities 'bitterballen' and 'kroketten'...
  • Long weekend
    on Jun 11, 2010 in cycling food
    This Monday Australia celebrates the birthday of the British queen and everyone will have the day off. Although the ties with the UK are not as strong as they used to be, Queen Elisabeth II is still the reigning queen of Australia. Long live the quee...
  • Where to watch the soccer world cup in Sydney
    on Jun 8, 2010 in Pim_Verbeek Darling Harbour Soccer
    Soccer is not as popular as rugby and cricket but the Australians make an effort to make you believe something different. Sydney hosts one of only six official 'FIFA Fan Fest' sites in the world (see the website). Every match (64 in total) can be fol...
