My name is Lynn and I am a native English lady living in The Netherlands. I am originally from Coventry, which is in the centre of England. I worked as an IT Relationship Manager whilst I was living in England and spent a lot of my time travelling around the UK with work. So I was very lucky to see a lot of the country.
After moving to The Netherlands I changed my career and was awarded the TESOL Advanced level 5 Qualification with Distinction and the Teaching English Grammar Certificate. I also have a Bachelor Degree in Communication from the UK. I moved away from teaching English into the area of Coaching and Counselling and have qualified as a Life Coach helping others solve their life problems, which means I get to utilise my degree in communication extensively.
I have been living in The Netherlands for a few years now and I love the people and culture here. I am very lucky to live in a beautiful area called Zeeland which is full of woods and golden sandy beaches.
I have lots of hobbies and interests. I love to read, walk on the beach, and in the woods, keep fit, canoe and eat! I like anything that makes me laugh and really enjoy spending time with my friends who are great fun. I really like food from different cultures, it's wonderful to try something new.
As you can see from the photos below I adore painting. I paint in oils and the painting below is a recent commission for a wedding anniversary.
Of course, when you live in The Netherlands you have to ride a bike! Everyone rides a bike. It's very flat here so that makes it easier. I ride my bike a lot now and really enjoy it. It took me a while to remember how to ride it though, I hadn't been on a bike for 20 years!
