Thank you Delaram, Laura, and Nandita, for joining in today and taking us along your journey in Eindhoven.
It was interesting to hear your stories on how you came to know about Eindhoven in the first place, what your expectations were, the challenges you faced, and many more. It is a wonderful achievement that how new, strange place transitioned to becoming your home. Quite encouraging and motivating as well on how you found your way in Eindhoven, though at times you were lost.
As Nandita said, international communities and the locals were very helpful in finding your way around. Specially when you were here a decade ago, the challenges were more. There were not many international communities; no communication through social medias to put your queries into. Language itself being a barrier; especially when English isn’t your first language.
But the vibrant ambience of Eindhoven with its “beautiful soul”, as Delaram said, never seizes to amaze you. The growing international community, international atmosphere, young and energy filled Eindhoven eventually gave you the “sense of belonging”.
As Laura said, not just Eindhoven, but the Netherlands in general provides a quality of life, mainly in terms of safety for women.
So, what comes first in the mind of our spouses when anybody says Eindhoven! Delaram: De Blob; Laura: Bowling Pins; and Nandita: Philips Lichttoren, 18 Septemberplein.
Thank you, Ashley, Binda, Negar, and Viviana for this wonderful day. Happy to welcome Binda to our family. Our newest member.
It was a thrilling 1 and a half hour: Having a chance to welcome our new member, introducing each other and then the puzzle. And that also not just one but four puzzles. Started with easy level and ended with harder one.
As Binda said, we had quite a brain exercise today. We showed quite a teamwork there.
Thank you so much Ashlee, Eva, Negar and Sun Qi for joining in today and playing Scribble together.
It was a fun and laughter filled day. Putting our drawing skills and challenging our mind to guess the word! And the time restraint! It was very engaging and thrilling. It showed us that sometimes even the rough, small drawing is enough to guess. And sometimes even though the picture is so detailed, it still eludes our mind.
What an amazing way to brighten up the day! Thanks to Sun Qi for suggesting this wonderful game.
