Born and bred in England, in 1994 I sold my London flat, resigned from my job, moved to the Netherlands and rented a room in a B&B.

Foolhardy? Perhaps.

Within 6 weeks I'd found work, a home just outside Rotterdam, and started following Dutch lessons for two evenings a week.

"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then."
