"Holland," she said, "is where my heart lies..."
Following in the footsteps of a rogue great aunt, Clara recovers from hurt by flying across the world to spend some time in Amsterdam. She takes a shot at the language, tastes her way through every type of cheese, and finds out the hard way that the Dutch are direct.
Slowly, Clara begins to feel like she's alive again, and soon she realizes that just because you're from somewhere doesn't mean that's where you are meant to be.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going and sometimes going foreign is just the way to go-a "non-American dream," perhaps. Wandering Canalside reaches out to anyone who has ever caught a glimpse of another world. If you like travel, particularly a certain brand of wandering about with no map or any purpose to speak of, you just might want to come along for the ride.
