Yosha Pharshy

Hallo, I am Yosha and I moved to the Netherlands with my Software Engineer husband 2 and a half years back and instantly fell in love with the culture (the weather not so much 😉). I have a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Telecommunication, though my love for books mean I read anything I can lay my hands on. I was brought up in a small and friendly town called Bhilai, in India, by parents who let me pursue all that I had interest in. I am looking forward to experiencing all that Utrecht has to offer to help add to my personality, my knowledge, and of course more great people in our life! A complete bookworm all my life I am looking forward to putting my literary knowledge to good use in bringing relevant information to the English-speaking public in Utrecht through this informative website.
