Hi from Europe / Update

Hi there,

You may have noticed I have not posted anything for a few weeks now……well that’s because I am off adventuring!     So, I thought I would pop in and give you an update of Where I am and What I’m doing……

At the end of last year, my work offered an opportunity for a few staff members to take up Secondment assignments in Europe.   I thought that it sounded like a wonderful opportunity so applied for it (not thinking it would happen to me)!

Hahahaha!  But it did happen….and now I am here in Europe!  Who’d have thought!

I am in Rotterdam, working in our office here until the end of May.  Then I will be taking some time to travel and see the sites in a few countries before returning to Australia.

How’s that for an adventure aye???

I arrived in Rotterdam on 15th March (a few weeks ago now) and was met at the airport by a work colleague.  After giving me a quick tour of the office and city orientation they left me to explore the city for the weekend.

My fav place so far……The Market Hall (Below).  It’s a large food hall with the supermarket at the bottom.  It’s kinda quite touristy but all the locals come here too.  At lunchtime everyone in the offices comes here to get lunch.  We come as a group and get what we want.  I’m really enjoying trying all the new and different foods.   I love the artwork.  It’s always a busy place.   And, see those windows in the roof??? – Well believe it or not but the outside of the building is all apartments.  Cool huh?

Yeah – so that’s where I am.  I will be checking in to share my adventures and hopefully sharing some craft moments with you too.
