00-Stuff-for-Joke

I know. I just wrote two newsletters, one about the Spring of 2017, mainly about Friesland and the other about my trip to Cambodia. But recently things have happened that I would like to share with you.

It was a trip to France, a ten day trip, by car.

A trip for many reasons. First of all Joke and Franklin had been here in Exmorra, looking through my grocery stores where they had selected a nice variety of interesting items from the supply that is still filling my attic. And because Joke and Franklin run a wonderful borocante called “Renaissance’ in Quillan and have many Dutch and English customers, some of these goods were in high demand.

Also in great demand was the Van Nelle Zware Shag for Axel. Considerably cheaper in Luxembourg as anywhere else.

And the new booksshop in Rennes-le-Chateau, run by Helene, had asked Joke several times for more of my books. They are selling well in her shop to mainly Dutch, Belgian, English and American customers.

So I had a full load to carry to France.

And apart from that I wanted to visit some special places on the way to France and on the way back and to meet old friends and also to see for myself what crazy things had happened in the church in Rennes-le-Chateau.

And finally Door would come over for a few days. She was to drive back with me to the Netherlands and show me where she had been working in Vittel.

Incredible how much can be seen, how much can be done and how much can happen in just a few days. You’ll see!

Trip Cambodia, 16 days, March 19 - April 3rd, 2017

Trip Cambodia, 16 days, March 19 - April 3rd, 2017

A new journey, an adventurous trip, a journey that took place just in the nick of time because of my last entry. We are a small group, a select group, a group of nine people, not counting our tour guide.

Here is a personal account of this particular trip, primarily for the group itself. The official itinerary is in the brochures and on the website of Djoser.

Note: Please be aware that the text was translated by computer from Dutch into English, It was a great job, but some of my personal style got of course lost.

Please click on the tab with date below to see the days stories. Enjoy.

Newsletter Spring 2017

Newsletter Spring 2017

Dear friends,

It has been a rough and tough time, a stressful time. A time of complex administrative procedures, of intense deliberations, of winding up and finalizing things, of arranging things, of clearing up and cleansing and most of all a time of waiting. Stressfull, stressful waiting.

I never thought that returning to one’s own country could be so complicated. Even for some-one like me who speaks the language and has a masters degree in law.

But now things are looking better. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not a train coming this way.

Let me tell you what happened.

Hier volgt een persoonlijk verslag van deze bijzondere reis, primair bedoeld voor de groep zelf. De officiële reisbeschrijving staat in de brochures en op de site van Djoser.

Newsletter January 2017, Friesland and some trips

Newsletter January 2017, Friesland and some trips

My house is almost ready, that is to say my computer room is fine, my kitchen is wonderfull, my bedroom is okay, my favorite paintings are on the wall and the grocery store is still intact. But I have over 50 boxes to unpack, and I don’t know where to put the stuff, my books, my DVD’s, my CD’s, my paintings and all the rest of it.

My bookshelves on my first attic are full and the second attic is filled with stuff from the grocery store. Some friends have been buying a few articles from me. I gave some away. Some of my stuff has gone to Joke, Femke, Gjalt and Ewout, but it is not enough. So help me out please, come and visit me and take some of it with you!
