A big move / A new country

Hello all.

It's been a long time since I posted here. Life has been crazy. It has included the end of TBWA\Vancouver, meeting with potential new employers, getting an awesome new job managing Blast Radius Amsterdam, taking a few weeks off including a trip to Nicaragua, and most recently moving to Amsterdam.

We arrived here on Saturday. The trip was relatively painless. Air Transat isn't good, but it certainly isn't bad either. We spent a couple of nights in the Hotel Vondel, which is great if you don't get their standard tiny room. (We upgraded after a night.) And then yesterday we moved into our temporary home in De Pijp.

I also started my new job in Amsterdam yesterday, after a week of training in Vancouver. All went well, but there's much to be done.

I hope to post updates here for friends, family and the curious over the coming months. Today we're off to the Hague to register with the consulate and take care of immigration issues. It's a short train ride away, but it should be interesting.
