June. The sixth month of the year happens to be my favorite month of the year. The weather is usually pretty good, everything looks fresh and green, and it is the month we have the TICNic! The TICNic, that moment where we say goodbye to the club year, look forward to our holidays, and enjoy each other’s company while eating a wide variety of dishes.

As per usual we conveniend at the Tilburg University campus where we have picnic tables, a good place for the grill, and a wonderful field for our (youngest) members to play games and do some sports. Also as per usual we had great weather. The days leading up to the BBQ weren’t that good but on the day itself we had that wonderful weather we’ve come to expect when we bring out our grillmaster Peter to do his thing.

Our event director, Patricia, out did herself and organised many fun activities to keep the TICKids and adults entertained and brought out the competitor in us all. There was one particular game of making the longest line of stuff which inspired some great team work and ingenuitive thinking from our members. Pieces of string, badminton rackets, clothing, and human beings wered used to try and make the longest line.

Of course there was also plenty of time to relax, catch up, enjoy the nice weather, and of course eat. Everyone brought a dish for the BBQ and thus we had a wide range of appetizers, salads and sweets. Each year everyone tries their best to bring something yummy and this year was no exception. I think almost all the food was finished by the time we packed up.

If you were there, thank you for making this one of the best events. If you could not attend, clear your weekends in June 2016 so you can attend and close with us, what I am sure will be, another awesome club year!

Good morning all! Friday has arrived and I imagine some of you are just as happy as me because of that 😆 A nice group braved the damp and blustery weather to meet and discuss The Lost Girls of Paris on our last #bookclub session 📖. We gathered around the cosy fireplace at one of our member's place and, while we all liked the book's storyline, we found the characters a bit unrealistic and the writing so-so. . A group member brought 3 really interesting book choices and (after explaining to us what a "crawdad" is ;-) we decided on: ✳️Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens (368 pages). . Many people have claimed this book is a "must read" so we hope you will get the book, read it and join us for a nice evening to discuss the book ☕. . We will meet on Tuesday, February 18th - 7:30 so make a note of it and plan to join us (location to be confirmed via email). All the best, Anne #expat #expatlife #dutchculture #holland #netherlands #visitnetherlands #visitholland #thenetherlands . . . . . . . . . . . #multicultural #tilburginternationalclub #tilburginternational #tilburg #tilburgdrinkt #tilburgismooi #visittilburg #ditistilburg #brabant #noordbrabant #visitbrabant #tilburgcom #inbrabant
