About Jean

Hello my dearest readers, I'm Jean, a young expatriate from the sunny and warm South of France. I just arrived in the (extreme!) cold of Amsterdam, and I will be here for the coming 9 months, stuck between the snow & Gouda! My English isn't perfect, but I make up for it with my awesome French! I am very enthusiastic to work for, a young dynamic and friendly company, my new family :)... I hope you'll enjoy our blog and all my posts.
