25.09.2020. I woke up this morning with the pleasant buzz of knowing I’d enjoyed a good night out and have made new friends! It was movie night with tíc. A simple idea, we watch a movie in its original language (English) and after the movie discuss it, over a drink, in a neighbouring pub.
Fourteen of us met at the Pathé. The movie was ‘The Secret’ based on the book by the same name. Reviews of the movie were divided, some enjoying it more than others. Afterwards, sitting comfortably in the pub, the movie did not manage to hold our attention for very long as we quickly moved on to getting to know more about each other and our diverse, colourful backgrounds. Laughter, fun & friendship! As we left the pub around midnight, I knew I would be back for the next tíc event!
Check out our movie review of The Gentlemen!
Next week we’ll have our first walking club meetup of the year. For #FlashBackFriday, let’s take a look back at its start!

Did you know that tíc has a dedicated JOBS page to help expats find jobs in the Netherlands, and specifically in and around the Tilburg area?
We get many requests all year round for help with job searches. More and more job searches are done through social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook as well as through the professional networking site LinkedIn. In-person networking is also an important factor in getting a foot in the door. We can help you build your social and professional network through its many activities that bring expats together.

07 Mar 2020. Right behind the Tilburg Central Station in the Spoorzone, is an old industrial locomotive hall that has been transformed into a cutting edge library, The LocHal. The repair center from the 1930s has been converted into a modernist design filled with glass, stunning wooden staircases and light-filled, open-plan spaces all housed within the steel beams of the original locomotive center.
28.05.2020. Our second Virtual Book Club gathering had members joined in by Zoom. I found it an interesting and different read and was curious to see what others thought of it.
‘Are you happy in your life?’ Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he wakes to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.
While not everyone liked the book – it gave ample opportunity for discussion. (more…)

20 Jun 2020. 2020 has been an unusual year, and our annual picnic was a bit different this year as well- but still a very fun get-together and pleasant way to spend a beautiful weekend afternoon.
We were all thankful that conditions have improved in the Netherlands such that we could meet up again and socialize in a group. It was great to catch up with fellow tíc members and even meet a new family to tíc!
