Sep 16, 2014 - Reunion in Breda

Frank and Alicen had a very "classy" lunch at an Italian Restaurant "Al Dente" in Breda with Gerard van Loon. He was a partner at KMPG Breda when Frank worked there. We enjoyed catching up on the 'good old times' and also on some current developments at and with KPMG in general. In the weeks leading up to us leaving Sydney, Frank had been busy organising a reunion of his KPMG Breda. The colleagues who attended were amazed that it took someone now living in Australia to organise such a reunion, the first that anyone could remember ever...

Sep 16, 2014 - Myrthe's school

While Frank and Alicen were enjoying classy lunch with his former KPMG partner, Myrthe was going to school. We all picked her up at 3.20pm and enjoyed seeing her classroom, drawings made and meeting a few of her teachers. Myrthe was allowed to take the school kangaroo home for the night to spend some time with her cousins from Sydney!

Feb 28, 2010 - Breda & Amsterdam !! <3

March 4, 2010 Karlee and I are back in London and cant stop thinking about Holland. Breda was amazing! We are so glad we didnt just do Amsterdam. On Monday we went to a comedy show and it was hilarious. Most of the acts were in Dutch so Karlee and I just fake laughed while Steph and Sam half translated. The MC talked about me and my hair non-stop, it was so funny. On Tuesday, Walter, Sam, Karlee and I took the train to Amsterdam. It is so beautiful I couldnt do it justice in words. There are canals everywhere, stone and brick roads,...

Jul 5, 2006 - Week 22 - Back to Den Bosch, Breda and Etten Leur

Highlights * After such a great boat trip it's hard to write about anything else and still consider it a highlight! The day after the boat trip Sean and crew, Opa and I went walking in the park. Afterwards we went back to Opa's place for a drink. Jake and Connor loved Oma's vibrating massage chair! Opa took us all to Etten-Leur where I'd arranged to stay with Jopie and Bert. They were looking after Mathea (Patrick's son) so it was a good opportunity to introduce Sean and Maria to some of the family. I picked up Oma while Sean got acquainted...

Dec 11, 2005 - Oma's 90th and Oisterwijk

11.12 (KtH) I woke up with a shocking hang-over. Not surprising considering the amount we all drank last night. If only I had drunk more water... The headache slowly subsided but I was still very tired when Lotte, Damien and I got in the car. Rene had kindly offered to take us to Etten Leur on his way to his boat (to tie a screw?). Oma would be celebrating her 90th birthday today. We were unable to give Rene directions as he had come in on the other side of the shopping centre. As we didn't recognise the roads we opted to walk from the...

Dec 5, 2005 - Nederland - Etten Leur

05.12 (DM) We were not at all motivated to travel today as we woke to an overcast and cold London day. We both really enjoyed staying at Brad and Jacqui's flat and definitely could have stayed longer. Thanks so much for having us. There was good reason to pack the bags today though as we were heading back to Kim's homeland of the Netherlands. The flight from London to Amsterdam was ridiculously quick. It took 45min! The weather in Holland was also shitty and a probable sign of things to come. After finding our backpacks and making our way...
