Netherlands Bound!

It’s crazy. You all always hear about this kind of thing on TV or in the movies, but we are actually doing it!

Well, it’s official: we are on our way to The Netherlands! After months of preparation and a seemingly endless string of paperwork and forms, it’s hard to believe that it’s finally happening. By this time tomorrow, we will be settling into our new apartment in Groningen. We have a pretty long trip to get there, with 4-hour layovers in both New York and Dublin. Add to that, the flights and the train ride from Amsterdam to Groningen and we are looking at about 24 hours worth of travel. Certainly not the ideal travel plan but I guess that’s what we get for moving on Memorial Day weekend…

In related news, the third member of our clan, Meatball, will not be joining us right away. We had some issues with the Vet and she will be coming next month (we’ll save that story for another post).   We know a lot of you are curious to hear how that whole process will go so we will be sure to update once she makes it over. For now, she is living the good life with Whitney’s mom.

So with that being said, we bid everyone farewell! We will certainly do our best to keep this up to date with our adventures and we hope to hear from you all. Facebook, Skype, Google +/Hangouts, iMessage, and email are all viable options to keep in touch with us. In the mean time, if you haven’t already done so, get your passports! We want EVERYONE to come visit! What’s the point of living in Europe if you can’t have friends and family to experience it with?

See you all soon!
