Short stories from The Netherlands

Amsterdam, July 2010.

The Netherlands was supposed to be the place I settled down in after almost a decade living around the world. Amsterdam was going to be my home… a symbol of stability… the city where I finally laid down my roots and built something long-lasting. Y‘know, for keeps!

For a while it looked like that’s exactly how it would go. After all, Amsterdam was a fantastic city, I was very much in love and I’d landed the job of my dreams. Together my girl and I sculpted the seemingly perfect life for ourselves. Or so we thought.

In the end, our Dutch utopia lasted just four years and our subsequent breakup signalled the disintegration of everything I thought my life was going to be. Along the way, I bought my first (and last) property, interviewed a bunch of Hollywood stars, pissed with Stifler and pitched a new TV show that would eventually go into production. It’s almost surreal looking back on those days now and realising how much my entire world has changed.
