Not sure what to do with the kids during the Christmas break? Take them to one of the hundreds of unique, kid-friendly, inspiring and fun museums in the Netherlands!
Did you know that you can gain entrance often at a reduced price or for free with the Museumkaart?

08 Jan 2020. We had a small but enthusiastic group for book club as we gathered to discuss The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff. The story centered around a curious, young widow named Grace who finds an abandoned briefcase in Grand Central Station right after WWII. She removed photos taken of 10 young women from the case and began a quest to find out the story behind the photographs.
Each chapter of the book (more…)
I moved to the Netherlands in April 2017. I’m originally from a small town near Santiago in Chili which, compared to any other city here, is not that small! I grew up my whole life in the same place, going for holidays to the same place as well until I felt I wanted and needed to see the world. That’s when I decided to go and study some of my university course in Canada, as an exchange student for a semester. I met amazing people from everywhere around the world and made good friends, but I also met an incredible Dutch man who is the reason why I’m currently living in Tilburg. (more…)
Next week we will be meeting for our next book club; a gathering that sometimes has intense debates, but is always a lot of fun. For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s take a look at a book club review from 2017!

31 May 2017. On the last day of May this year, loyal members of TIC’s Book Club met to discuss our latest book, The Japanese Lover, by Isabel Allende. We were fortunate to have nice weather, which allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the peaceful spring evening. (more…)

26 Nov 2019. Have you ever had fresh, warm worstenbrood, a Tilburg speciality?Better yet, have you ever made them? A lucky 8 of us did on Tuesday at
De Smaeck Bakkerij in Berkol-Enschot.
Although probably not something you’d make at home, we had a great time
putting them together with the professionals at the bakery!
I arrived in the Netherlands in August 2012. It was a sunny day at the train station in Rotterdam. I am French and was supposed to stay for 1 year of study and then go back home. Well, as you might have guessed it already it didn’t go as planned because I am still here!
I just fell in love with the country and its culture. There was something about the Netherlands that made me feel better than in my own country. So, after 1 year of study in Rotterdam, I decided to give it a shot and stay an extra year. I moved to Tilburg in 2013 to study at Tilburg University. I went afterwards to work catching all opportunities, so I could start my career before going back to France. It went so well that I decided to stay and later on to go to Dutch class to integrate better in my new country. There I met other internationals like me, who introduced me to the club. I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to be part of this club. It really helped me to find my place.
I like challenges, so I went for the event team with my friend Jessica and I can say that it was worth it. Actually the full experience of travelling and establishing myself in another country was worth it.
