I miss being able to go to IKEA and get for FREE pickles and fried onions. The best part we get to put them ourselves unlimited.  In Poland we pay extra for it and they put only like 4 pickles on it.

As you can see I am a bit home sick for The Netherlands but it was a fun 7 days while it lasted.  I am counting down till next summer’s trip already.

To my expat readers, what is something you miss about home? Me, not having a language barrier when I go places!  My Polish is not up to par for most things yet.

    Thanks for being so positive about the netherlands.
    I do love my country but Limburg is for me always home.
    You can get me out off Limburg but never Limburg out me.

    Love Harriet

    I miss krentebollen, goulash kroket, bitterballen, cheese, bread. I also like the fact that the stores are only open one Sunday a month
