Just an amendment...

Yes, it's true. I am Dutch and I'm proud of it. But that's only the first reason why I am Orange-X. The "X" is a multiplicator and therefore allows more meanings than one. Let me fill you in on the second and third reason for chosing "Orange-X".

2nd: The Swiss flag has a white cross. I am a Swiss resident with a residence permit and my national colour is orange, but I appreciate Switzerland. So I mix the Swiss flag a bit with the orange colour of my nationality et voilà le résultat: A red flag with an orange cross.

3rd: I have a weak spot for Boss clothing, especially the orange line. I simply love the Boss Orange leisure wear. My credit card however is less fond off the Boss orange. Everytime I enter Herren Globus my credit card starts screaming before I have even looked at anything. I guess the card knows already it will suffer an hour later :)

Hi expat traveller. Been visiting your blogs too (thanks to TBF). Actually, I have both nationalities. My father being Swiss, I had the chance to apply for the Swiss passport until the age of 18. Being born in Canada and my mother being Canadian... Well, there you go.
