RSGD_Small_CoverDeborah Valentine (ACCESS) and Robin Pascoe ( got in touch back in May with an idea to collect stories from expats in the Netherlands as to how they have found their time here to help those who are heading to the Netherlands, or indeed help the locals understand the way foreigners find their country!

This has been a dream team production, and I can’t wait to see it in print!

This is what they say about it:

“Ready, Steady, Go Dutch is a must-have resource for anyone planning on settling in the Netherlands, or who has been here a little longer.

This innovative English-language publication is a handy 100-page paperback full of tips, tricks, and testimonials from expats and internationals, who have already “gone Dutch”.

The book has been compiled from the experiences of some 150 people from all over the world.”

The book will be launched at the ICP END OF YEAR RECEPTION at the Hilton on the 9th December 2013.
