Yesterday Devin and I proceeded our journey and travelled from Amsterdam to Enkhuizen to visit Arno on his ship, the Broedertrouw. The Broedertrouw is a 2 mast tall sail ship, 36 meter long, built in 1880 and birth place for my addiction in knot tying. As expected the weather was cold, windy and rainy. After a great discussion and fantastic traditional Dutch food we went to bed.
Probably some of my Dutch friends would correct me now and tell me that Holland is not the name of the country, but the name of a province. To be precise the name of two provinces: North Holland and South Holland. The country itself is called the Netherlands which means ‘the low lands’.
A few weeks ago a friend asked me if I ever thought about working as Happiness Engineer at Automattic. My immediate reply was “I would love to, but I’m not good enough yet.”. However, he convinced me to give it a try. Now, a few weeks later, I’ve successfully passed my first and second assignment as well as my first and second interview. And … drum roll … Automattic offered me a trial position as Happiness Engineer starting on July 3, 2017.
