10 thoughts on “My Netherlands & First Newcastle Trip

    1. Hi LP,

      It's a business trip! No choice, got to go! Actually fast forward many years later, I prefer to be like you and the other leisure man, "own time own target"… that is true meaning of being free. For now, if it's work then "ah gong" will sponsor me go abroad… for me is to see more things and widen horizon.. but having traveled so frequently for the last 10 years for work… sometimes it can be really dreadful..

    1. Hi CW,

      Yes.. haha.. chargeable.. will be better than lonely planet…

      Actually this is an excuse to siam and not invest in current market… Jim Rogers once said if market is good, take a break and go to beach…

      Traveling also help you to understand more about the world (if you talk to local) and help in our investment decisions when time come.

      Again.. Jim Rogers did the same.

    1. Hi Jfree,

      Yes…Thanks. I was having breakfast with Alan Shearer, David Ginola, Faustino Asprilla, Les Ferdinand, and Kevin Keegan…. haha 😛

  1. Rolf,

    Amsterdam not bad right?

    I love the canals and quaint townhouses.

    The first time when I were there, I remember being envious of my Dutch colleagues who only worked 4.5 days work week.

    Took a "cultural" tour to their famous red-light district and visited Anne Frank museum.

    And of course visited their "coffee shops" 😉

    1. Hi SMOL,

      No time for Amsterdam this time except the airport, more of Rotterdam and work.

      But been to AMS several times for leisure and yes, I love the "Long Kang"…In fact if its freezing ice, the long kang can also ice-skate. I never been to Anne Frank museum but I know the story of the little gal…

      I know you definitely like the red-light district and "coffee shops". Many years ago, I was alone in AMS taking a country tour. I met a group of uni students from Ireland Dublin, but with origins of Georgia and Kazakhstan. We had good time together and became friends.

      Now…"space cake" for you! 🙂

      FYI their retirement age is 67….not 62 like us.

  2. Hi Rolf

    My company's HQ is in Netherlands Hague and I havent got a chance to visit yet. One day I will be looking forward to visiting.

    Enjoy the trip and show us more photos!!!^^

    1. Hi B,

      Icic…so you worked in a Dutch company. Haha… not the easiest of Europeans to work for.. huh.

      I been to Hague several times including work and leisure time. It is a nice place and where the Royal Family are. Two years ago, Willem-Alexander became the first male monarch king since a long long time.

      As for photos….I will show you more from Bali, since I am there now…But hor…got the hint that this is not a travel blog already..! Hehe… 😛
