#2398 – Another Long Weekend

ENGLISH So after a “long-ish” weekend the previous weekend, this weekend was another long weekend here in the Netherlands. A “real” long weekend because yesterday (Monday) was a public holiday here. Yeay! Though, unfortunately this marked the last long weekend we would have this year because the next public holiday in this country will be…

#2396 – A Long-Ish Weekend Story

ENGLISH So as it turned out, Thursday last week was a public holiday in the Netherlands; thus effectively making Friday a “bridging” day. Many of my colleagues took Friday off so that they would have a “real” long weekend this weekend. As for me, well, I didn’t, haha 😛 . I mean, I thought taking…

#2385 – Apparently A Long Weekend

#2367 – A Rainy Weekend in Venice

ENGLISH I kicked off my weekend trips of 2020 in mid-January with a visit to … Venice! Yep, the super famous Italian city! I have been to Venice before, but only once, though, that was nine years ago as part of my 2010 year end trip to Italy with a group of friends. So yeah,…

#2360 – A Sunny Winter Weekend in Milan

ENGLISH Milan, Italy has kind of been an “anomaly” in my European traveling map. It is a big city not that far from the Netherlands with great access, yet in the nine plus years I have lived in Europe, I have only been there once, about nine years ago. It was perhaps because I did…
