Notes From The Netherlands.

Short stories from The Netherlands

Amsterdam: July 2010.

And for a while it looked like that’s exactly how it would go. I felt like I’d won the lottery to be honest! After all, as a city Amsterdam was fantastic. Furthermore, 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 and for a while it felt like there was no stopping us.

However, 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. To find out more, have a read of my short story series Notes from The Netherlands.
