This will be my last post to this blog (at least for the foreseeable future). As you may have read or heard, I moved from Amsterdam to Melbourne, Australia this month. Since my life is no longer based in Amsterdam, I felt it fitting to revamp my Life in Amsterdam blog.

I will continue to blog at www.kathykeating.org, but that site will become An Expat’s Photoblog. I moved all my old posts to this address (www.kathykeating.wordpress.com), so Life in Amsterdam could still have a life of its own on the web.

I loved my six and half years living in Amsterdam, and I’ll always have fond memories of that time. I know I’m going to miss the city and all the great people I met there immeasurably—I already am, and I’ve only been gone two weeks! But I’m also excited for this next chapter in my life.

If you’re interested in following my adventures in Australia, please take a look at the new blog www.kathykeating.org. Regardless, I hope you enjoy these old posts on Amsterdam! Thanks so much for visiting!!

Of course, as soon as I blogged about cold weather and ice skating in the Netherlands, it started getting warmer the very next day. It’s mostly stayed above freezing since then, so I think the hopes of many for the 11 Cities Tour have been dashed for the moment. But who knows? Maybe we’ll have another cold streak next month.

This weekend was a rather gray and rainy one—much closer to the typical Dutch winter weather we’ve come to know, yet not quite love. It was a great weekend for staying in and reading books and watching movies though. I flew through New Moon, Stephenie Meyer’s second book in the Twilight series. I enjoyed it, and it was certainly another page-turner, but I didn’t think it was as good as the first book. Jim read Barry Eisler’s The Last Assassin, which he really liked. Apparently, it’s the fifth in a series of action novels. (I haven’t read any of them.) I also watched The Lake House, which is an enjoyable but kind of cheesy Sandra Bullock-Keanu Reeves movie.

I also worked on my other two blogs, Amsterdam in Photos and TechKathy.com, a bit. When I started out blogging in November, I got really excited and had lots of ideas about what I wanted to do. Now that I’m three blogs in, I’m realizing that they’re actually a lot of work, so I think three blogs is it for me. I still have quite a few ideas for new site designs, and I’m toying with the idea of creating my own WordPress design from scratch, but I think that’s a project for later on down the road.
