Nicola Chadwick

I came to the Netherlands for one year - 28 years ago. I began blogging in the run up to the 2012 general elections - when I took on the Dutch nationality, while keeping my British passport. After at least 20 years working as a translator/editor and ten years of translating bulletins and writing articles on Dutch current affairs for Radio Netherlands Worldwide, I feel I know the Netherlands inside out. In addition, I'm a radio junkie and a news addict. I can turn my hand to any subject, but my preferences lie with Dutch current affairs, politics, business, culture and society.

If you are interested in Dutch politics and current affairs you can read my blog from April 2015 on the Dutch News features page and up until March 2015 Amsterdam Herald and follow me on Twitter @amsternic.

If you'd like to read something completely different, read my other blog on 'Everything there is to love about North Amsterdam' -
