Gezellig (Dutch)


Submitted for the April Scavenger Hunt Challenge.

Gezellig is a Dutch word that really doesn't fall
under any one English word. It applies to things
being cozy, quaint or nice but also connotes time
spent with loved ones, seeing a friend after long
absence or general togetherness.

Meme spending time with Miles watching a passing
train at the office today reminded me of gezellig.

Yup. That's about as close to a moving train as we should get at this stage.

I think gemütlich in German is somewhat similar.
Good portrayal of a difficult one in the challenge.
