My name is Bas Boshuizen. In the late summer of 2010, I met a girl in my hometown of Leiden. She made me travel the world and now I ended up in one of the last places I’d visit for any other reason: the Midwest. After visiting Missouri for a number of years, we bought a house, got married, and now I am living Missouri, but continue to blog here.
Rooted in American culture through watching an awful lot of television series, everyday life in the States never seizes to amaze me. Contemplating as I am, I wanted to write my amazement down in what now has become this blog. This is what I experienced when fully dipping into the ‘Real America’. As I am sharing, please share back to make the experience not only mine. If you like this blog, please subscribe in the box to your right and I’ll make sure you’ll never miss anything! While you’re at it, don’t forget to like my Facebook page, where I share new blog posts, memes, or other things I randomly find online that remind me of being in a strange country.
While waiting for my Green Card, I started a website to help small businesses create their social media strategy. You can find this project right here.
