Work Trippin’

Work trips are a mixed bag at times. On one hand you get to see new things and visit new cities, on the other, those new things may often be limited to the place you’re staying in and the work you’re there to perform. Such is the case with my stay in Haarlem. Karolina and…

1963 Porsche 356 SC

Today I had the pleasure of riding in a 1963 Porsche 356 SC. It happens to belong to one of the owners of the company we’re currently visiting in The Netherlands. I’ve had a steady contact with Porsche owners for over 16 years trough my dad’s work at North Hollywood Speedometer so this car was…

The Heineken Experience Fail

As I mentioned in my previous post, the Heineken Experience is known as one of Amsterdam’s main attractions, a must see while visiting the city. Seventeen euro’s later I’m here to tell you not to waste your money! The entire thing is more of a self guided, walk at your own pace, kind of a…
