Rocamadour

Rocamadour

Terrible things are happening in the world. Terrible, terrible things. I know that things like that have happened before. In Cambodia and in Africa with the Huti’s and the Tutsi’s and in many other places. But now we have the Internet and now we have the wartime reporters and now we have satellites and unmanned vehicles. And we see it all happening, right before our eyes. It is horrible. As if the worst fears come true. And we are not only watching it, as we did before, we also feel it. In our bones, in our blood, in out heart.

It is as if things have to get worse before getting better. For they have to get better. They must. The Earth is cleaning itself. People are changing. But the resistance to all these changes is fierce. However let’s try to be positive. Let’s try and see the changes as necessary. As changes that the Earth and we too have to undergo before things get better.

URGENT: My Yahoo email account is hacked!!!!

URGENT: My Yahoo email account is hacked!!!!

Please be advised that I understand my email account has been hacked and spammers are sending emails on my behalf. Please do not open and if you do pay no attention to this ridicilous request. I did respond to a request that threatened to de-activate my account, despite warnings I did any how, so people make sure you always check the links associated with such communications, never open attachments from parties you do not know and lots of other things we need to do in this day and age. The spam email says:

  " I really hope you get this fast. I could not inform anyone about our trip, because it was impromptu. we  had to be in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a program. The program was successful, but our journey has turned sour. we  misplaced our wallet and cell phone on our way back to the hotel we lodge in after we went for sight  seeing. The wallet contained all the valuables we had.

I am sorry if i am inconveniencing you, but i have only very few people to run to now. i will be indeed  very grateful if i can get a loan of €2,250 EUR. or whatever you can afford to spare me from you. this  will enable me sort our hotel bills and get my sorry self back home. I will really appreciate whatever  you can afford in assisting me with. I promise to refund it in full as soon as I return. let me know if  you can be of any assistance. Please, let me know soonest.

Thanks so much

Jaap"

So sorry for the inconvenience.

With love

Jaap Rameijer.

News July/August 2014

News July/August 2014

It is incredible. The things that have happened in the past two months. Looking back at all the pictures I took, I now realise how many people we have met and how many places we have visited. And I am amazed and tired as well.

These are curious times. I feel that we just had to meet many of the people that came to our place. And that we had to guide them to these special places. And to talk to them. I also feel that things are changing now. I know this is what I say every time, but it is true. The tides are turning.

So much is happening. The world is in turmoil. It is terrible what is happening. Things are so bad that they hardly can get worse. Or are we finally plunging in a world-wide crisis? Something good must come off it, it must, that’s what I feel, it must, eventually. That’s what I feel and that’s what I hope.

Newsletter May/June 2014

Newsletter May/June 2014

Finally some rest. So much has happened the past several weeks. But now it is quiet, there are only a few guests and the weather is beautiful. Just as it should be. The only excitement now is the world championship soccer in Brazil.

We had three large groups, one of Stavoor, the ‘pre-pensionados,’ one of Leonie Linssen, with some beautiful girls and one of Thomas Young, a spiritual leader from Germany and Hawai, who came here with a group of 22 wonderful people. There will be a special newsletter for the tours made with this last group. And there were several smaller groups or single persons. Among them my lovely daughter Femke, with her daughter Simone and her friend Roelof. And our friend Hanneke Hoppenbrouwer with her partner Eric.

Program Thomas Young, May 30th – June 8th 2014

Here an example of the programs we offer, especially to groups, like the group of Thomas Young. This group consisted of 22 persons, mostly from Germany and a few from Switzerland. A ten-day program. Including picking up people at various places, like airports, railway stations or hotels. Taking them, and their luggage to Les Labadous. Providing accommodation: all rooms have their own shower and toilet facilities (restroom) and the apartments and gites have cooking facilities as well. Serving an excellent breakfast, serving lunch or if required packed lunches and serving dinners.

Also providing guiding facilities (my person), and providing, if necessary, drivers and cars (Franklin and I myself) in our own cars or in rented vans, seating 8 people.
