Amsterdam and Florence

This trip was a last minute holiday set up to follow leadership training I received at Duin & Kruidberg in Santpoort south of Amsterdam (yes, this is my fifth business trip to Amsterdam this year – you can look at other pages in the travelogue to see where I’ve been). ABN AMRO employees call Duin […]

Amsterdam and Delft

I left for Amsterdam on April 17 for work. I didn’t know exactly when I’d return; turns out I left April 26. Here’s a picture of the current state of the front of Vijzelstraat 32, where I worked a few years ago. The building has been sold to the city of Amsterdam and will be […]

Another trip to Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the Netherlands

A team of four of us from ABN AMRO went to Amsterdam to do a death march – that’s a project that shouldn’t be able to be done in the time allotted.  We did succeed; I worked 320 hours in 30 days, spending a total of 5 weeks in Amsterdam.  This was my second time […]
