Amsterdam — Somehow I’ve found myself in a room bustling with all the languages of Europe—they’re mixing out in the dusty air around me; Dutch and German, Greek and French, others are arguing in Romanian (or perhaps Italian) whilst they nudge past their elderly counterparts, tourists speaking English. Although they all share their incompatible language with a neighbour, everyone around me can somehow communic...
Amsterdam — That’s a quote from professional cyclist and journalist Guilleme Prébois and it has been my motto ever since I arrived to Amsterdam about 5 years ago. It describes literally what biking is about and ...
Amsterdam — Yesterday evening I was looking over my pictures from those few days we spent in Amsterdam, when I suddenly realised. Did you know that the corners of your mouth are upturned on every picture, Lena? W...
Amsterdam — First let me apologize for being obvious in here, but after after reading to my friend Luis Mendo who recently wrote a piece “Never walk alone” in this very platform I got so inspired by his words tha...
The Great Unbundling
Home, the heart. In an Amsterdam building, about to be torn down, Marjan Teeuwen, built the interior in giant stone piles.
Bothered with structures
Just passing by
Take your pick
First let me apologize for being obvious here is just that after reading to my friend Luis Mendo who recently wrote a piece "Never walk alone"
I would love to chat on bike rides as the sun goes down at 9pm, ride relaxed instead of rushed...
Hours after I found out someone took my business idea- I sat behind a tree in the park and cried.
The perfect spot.
Who and why? Hare Krishna invasion.
Well, it's not that bad. Not that bad at all...
"Why not use my wall as a whiteboard?" I thought - and I did.
Trying to find an equilibrium - and wondering what happens when you slip and fall.
A coffee to settle down the excitement of visiting our first client
At some point we accept the path that took us to where we are now.
Coffee, tea, coffee... Starting to work again!
No it's not cold. We're just dressed as monsters today.
Almost at the end of the Hub's 60 day challenge, finally realized where I got stuck in my business-model
Polare bookstore in central Amsterdam: this place goes up forever! I walked 6 floors, including the ground, and gave up climbing at the foot of yet another stair.
Waiting for a client and discovering new places.
I'm superficial. I love the forms of contemporary Dutch housing, but dislike the motley mashups that makeup their materiality.
I can't help but read these paintings as if they were plan views. Beware the architectural education.
River view, Amsterdam
The start-up roller coaster... Not exactly for the faint of heart.
Tulips for sale, Amsterdam
Networking with dogs - continuation of the startup adventure.
Sun in the square. For now.
Autumn themed kitchen window - to make me happy in these cold mornings
Kartika- Indonesian deliciousness! Feel good food
Nowhere. Now here.
Sounds of Dutch schoolchildren in the street below.
Start up boost moment!
If you turn around at the right moment, you can find the strangest things!
Starting a new business can be chaotic. I use different tools to remind myself of my to-do's
Somewhere Over Europe...
Dit is nogh een test waarom kanis geen foto toevoegen?
"Beware of unwanted attention" this quote got me thinking alot about J.D.Salinger elusiveness persona, so much that I had the urge to draw him.
On a bicycle you rarely look back. If you decide to look back anyway, it will be only for a while. You have to look ahead. A philosophy of life?
Reading up about content, some great revalations here..
Afternoon at the Stedelijk - Koons, Malevich et al.
This is where I go everyday to think, talk, laugh, write and drink lots of coffee. Some call it work.
Amsterdam: once a while you'll arrive late at your work because a boat crosses your road
On my way to the opening of a Jordaan art gallery opening, sunset hits the Westerkerk like Ruysdael's finger. Great to be floating over this city; a bike sure helps
As I get off my bike, someone else does too. It's improbable that we're both great minds. Rather that Amsterdam sometimes requires a keepsake.
Enjoying a Sunday afternoon.
This is my first post from sayHi. Just checking to see how it works and if it will really change the way I blog
Sitting in the sun. Tried to fix the window of my car. I found the problem, couldn't fix it though.
A hot summer night with thunder in the sky. Just finished the novel Stoner by John Williams. Beautiful
A new forrest has formed…
Where they sell books and I used to come pick her up after her class.
The sun cuts right through that house on the other side of the river.
Always fun to tourist in your own town, experience everyday life slightly different.
Young pilot heading home after his first holiday to Amsterdam to visit Daddy!
Talking about missing. I'm probably going to miss this one too.
Welcome to Hyves
Enjoying the evening before the last day of work before a three week holiday.
