What have I got myself into?

Posted by walterheck

I would say: the adventure of a lifetime! I have been surfing around Rotterdam for a week and a half now. Right now I’m staying at awesome Aldo’s place. I have said goodbye to several people already (feels kind of weird, especially since I have no idea if/when I’ll be returning to Holland. Goodbye sis + Mark, goodbye Nicco, goodbye Eef! Hope to see you soon (anywhere on this planet will do πŸ˜‰ ).

In the meantime, I’m still working, which is getting harder day by day. Only 9 more days of work to go. I Think I will actually miss working at that place. The job is nice, management is nice and my colleagues are (although they will never admit it πŸ˜‰ ) friends that I get along with not just on the job, but also outside. That is a combination of good factors rarely seen I think. I’m coaching my replacement right now, so things are really becoming final.

I already sort of miss my old apartment, as it was a great place to live. Even though it is a great feeling of freedom to own nothing (except financial debt πŸ˜‰ ), it also becomes very clear to me that this is the real beginning of the next phase of my life! Nobody (including me) knows what is going to happen even in one month time. It all feels very exciting and I’m looking forward to it very much!

This weekend I’ll be visiting my birth grounds in the south of Holland to see some more people. Next weekend, my last in Holland, is full of parties (not even for me, it just happens to be a party weekend, really πŸ˜‰ ). Right now it is time for bed, as tomorrow I have another day of work ahead of me.

See you later and keep those comments coming, it is for all of you guys that I’m keeping this blog!

  1. What you got yourself into? How about the most precious thing one could do? You unleached yourself, got free and are about to see the world. Enjoy. And whenever you come back, be bald πŸ˜‰



  2. It’s about time you updated your blog, you lazy bastard!



  3. Wauw… m’n naam in je weblog, ik voel me vereerd πŸ˜‰
    Ik vond het heel erg gek om afscheid te nemen en ik ben dan ook blij dat je deze site hebt, blijven we hier toch een beetje op de hoogte.
    Succes met de laatste loodjes op je werk en vââl plezeer als het strakjes echt gaat beginnen.

    Ik wou hier nog een leuk plaatje van een mes inplakken, maar zo cool is je site dan weer net NIET… helaas pindakaas, maar je snapt de bedoeling wel he πŸ˜‰

    xx Eef

  5. Hallo Papa Walter,

    Ben je me nu al vergeten?
    Of komt het, omdat ik je beet en krabbelde, toen je op visite kwam?
    Ik bedoelde het niet kwaad, dat weet je toch!?
    Ik wilde je gewoon even laten voelen, dat ik het heel jammer vind dat je weggaat, ook al heb ik het heel goed en gezellig bij Debbie.

    Veel succes en plezier, ook namens Debbie.

    Liefs van je kleine Doerak.



  6. He Walter.

    ben ik je toch nog ‘misgelopen’. Ik zal jou ook missen! Raar als je elkaar normaal ook niet superveel ziet en zoals je zelf zegt de wereld is klein genoeg om elkaar nog ergens op de planeet tegen te komen. Heel veel geluk op je grote reis of misschien wel de volgende fase van je leven.
