Hi Kevin, when did you arrive in the Netherlands?
I arrived in the Netherlands in March 2022.

How did you experience the first few months in the Netherlands?
The first few months in the Netherlands were all over the place from getting settled in to finding my feet. But once I did it was smooth sailing from there.

Does it feel like home?
After 2 years of living here and finding new friends and my family being closer, it does feel like home.

Do you still live in the same house as in the beginning?
No, I have moved to a new apartment in December of 2023.

How was it to learn the language? Was it easier or harder than expected?
Working for a full Dutch company I picked up the language quite fast. But still tend to make a few mistakes with mixing Afrikaans words in not knowing that they aren’t Dutch.

What do you miss most about South Africa?
I miss my friends and other family in South Africa as well as some South African foods and snacks.

What appeals to you most in the Netherlands?
The safety and public transport is awesome in the Netherlands. Being able to get around everywhere without a car is something I love.
