Unhappy Brit in Zeewolde [scream]

Hi there

I am a brit married to a Dutch. We moved from busy Amsterdam to one-horse town Zeewolde. Finding an English speaking expat in this town is impossible, even in Harderwijk, the next town over. So I ask, does anyone live in Zeewolde or Harderwijk? It would be lovely to meet an English speaking people to grab a coffee with. I would love to start a regular group meetup. Looking forward to hearing from someone in this great black hole that I now live in. Positive, I have a bigger living space than in Amsterdam, oh and I have a garden- summer BBQs anyone?

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
It doesn't look as though there are any BE members in Zeewolde or nearby! Why limit yourself to finding English-speaking expats, why not join local clubs and associations and make friends with people with the same interests? They will likely be bilingual Dutch who'll be glad to talk in English....
You haven't given much info on yourself - Did you move to Zeewolde for your husband's work? Do you yourself work? Any children? Do you speak Dutch? If not (for the last question), then IMO, if you're likely to be in your great black hole for a long time, you should learn Dutch ASAP and make friends as suggested above. Your OH could help with the learning process....
Not much help, I know, but it's what I would do in your position....
