How did you meet Martjin?
I just started reading your blog recently so apologies if you've covered this, but how did you get to be a transplant?
Did you want to live in another country or did it just kind of happen?

I would also like to know the story of you and Martjin?
If you would've told me 10 years ago that I'd be married and living in The Netherlands I probably would've told you to lay off the drugs because they were making you nuts. Leaving the country was never even on my radar. I thought it would be fun to go to Europe and see some of the places my dad told me about but move here? No way!
Love makes you do crazy things, doesn't it?
I met Martijn on IRC (internet relay chat) sometime in 2002. I can't remember exactly when because I wasn't really on the lookout for anyone, ESPECIALLY someone that lived on the other side of the world. Over the course of the next few months I started realizing that he was a rather decent fellow and apparently he thought I was okay too! We visited back and forth from 2003-2006 and decided that it was getting WAY too hard to say goodbye to each other at the end of our visits.
The rest, as they say, is history!
The end of December will mark our third anniversary and I'm looking forward to many many more.
