    Biking is hot

    Just imagine doing everything on your bike, from pre-drinking to kissing, and that all without that charming bucket on your head. No big sponge between your legs, wearing just a little skirt that flutters in the wind. Doesn’t that sound attractive? Dutch people do...

    Direct Dutchies and Tarofing Persians

    Have you ever been away from family and friends for a longer time? Then you probably can imagine how it feels to be a little homesick. It’s like a sharp, burning feeling inside that sticks to you, even though you’re perfectly happy in the place you are. Somehow it...

    Unraveling the myth of Persians and BMW’s

    You might have spotted them. Dark eyed, with Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses, the hair overdosed with gel, one arm holding the wheel and the other leaning on the open window of their BMW. No, it’s not homeland security or a drugdealer, it’s a Persian! Okay, okay,...

    City life: a casual unity of strangers

    Its getting colder and the mountains are full with snow now. From my apartment I can see them in the distance, surrounding the city like enormous giants. It must be beautiful up there. Time to explore them, grab my snowboard out of the storage room and slide off the...

    Challenges of an intercultural relationship

    As you already know, my boyfriend has an Iranian background. On a sunny day I  was wearing a new T-shirt and asked him what he thought of it (and i learned to do that never again). After a silence he said: 'yeah its kinda comfy and conservative'. This brought us to...

    Persian Dancing around the Christmas Tree

    The first challenge i encountered when I moved to Vancouver was Persian dance. Wherever I was on a party, Persians would ask me to dance. But how could I, as a Dutch girl, ever make such elegant moves as they do?  I come from the Netherlands, the country of...

    Begging for a Loonie

    A guy walks past me. Suddenly he turns around and whispers in my ear: 'I have a green garden at home, you wanna buy some?' No thank you. I know where to get my own 'garden' stuff.  Something strange is happening to the population of Vancouver. I see more and more...

    Walking through Vancouver

    Getting to know a city is like getting to know a new lover. First everything is amazing, then you discover some flaws and annoyances, and you start fighting them. Vancouver has the same effect on me. First I enjoyed all the beauty of it, the sea, the mountain views,...

    Persian dinner parties in Vancouver

    Did you ever eat so much you couldn't walk anymore? Did you ever eat like that and then ate some more? This happens all the time to me when I have a Persian dinner. I arrived in Vancouver with a slim figure from all the biking in Holland, but when I started enjoying...

    Vancouver aka Raincouver

    Hey peeps, Are you also missing the summer? As you know I am living in Vancouver, which is amazing in summer, but a little less sparkling in winter. It is already raining for two full months now. This is the reason that the city got the name 'Raincouver', it can rain...

    My emigration to Canada

    Hey everyone! This is my first blog..Keep on reading! I discovered that emigration is like climbing a hill. A couple of steps forward, one step back because of steepness, and forward again. Sometimes you fall a little bit back, sometimes everything is on the right...
