Summer Send-off (in Belgium !)

I’m not gonna lie. I had a fantastic summer. No work. Lots of travel. Still got paid (thank you bankruptcy settlement). Mid-September I started a new job and you’ll be happy to know that I have been paying the price for my idyllic summer. Nice to meet you up-at-6-am-with-a-45-min-one-way-commute. Long story short, I’m still re-adjusting […]

Happy New Year !

  We Went to Amsterdam! Well, not for New Year’s Eve. We stayed here in Groningen for that which was an experience in itself. Fireworks are legal here for only three days (Dec 30 – Jan 1) and during that time you can expect to hear them non-stop. The legal fireworks aren’t so huge but […]
