One year ago today I moved to the Netherlands. One year ago today I nervously had this conversation with the passport control worker at Schiphol:
Worker: And what is your business in the Netherlands?
Me: Ummm.. I’m moving here? (pause as he looks a bit confused. He definitely wasn’t expecting that response!) But there’s an MVV in the back? (MVV being a sticker which gave me permission to enter the country with the purpose of moving here.)
Worker: (flips to the back of the passport) Oh okay. (stamps the sticker) Thanks.
And that was it… done. We (I) fretted about that moment for weeks, and it was that simple!
