My wife and I live in the United States but have contemplated what a move to the Netherlands would look like (where her family is from) for a few years on-and-off. We visited for about 12 days back in 2013 but largely explored neighboring towns and did the typical Amsterdam touristy thing.
We are wanting to revisit the city within the next few months to get a better sense of what it would feel like to move and live there. We are not seriously limited by time or money but want to make the best use of the time we do spend in the city. We also have a 4 1/2 month old little girl and want to be realistic.
Our current wish-list of activities includes:
• Meeting with other expat families (at least 3 that relocated from the USA)
• Meeting with someone in education (my wife has a Master's in Education) to discuss ESL opportunities
• Meet with an estate brokerage (we sell Real Estate in the US)
• Run typical errands: grocery shopping, home goods, etc.
• Visiting family in Tiel
We have the ability to stay for up to 1 month in the city, but are wondering if this may be too long--especially with an infant and with our goal of getting a sense of living there. How long should we stay, and what else would be worthwhile, immersive activities for a family of potential expats?
Thank you in advance,
