Ali goes Dutch… and English…. for Christmas!

Two weeks off for Christmas… it was blissful. Well, it was when I finally made it home! Absolute chaos getting out of Amsterdam (if we can remember as far back as 2 weeks when all the travel disruptions due to the weather were in place) and then the flight had to be diverted to another airport as the airports were closing!! Made it to the Sports Personality of the Year Awards though in Birmingham which was a fantastic evening. Just before I left Amsterdam was the Sawadee Christmas Party, and the theme… Traditional Netherlands – which was an evening of Dutch Quiz games and food. Needless to say I didn’t understand a thing! The language has been a huge challenge. So, the Holidays were great, fully needed to recharge and relax – great to get out to the coast frequently and enjoy the company of friends and family – it just went way too quickly!!By the time of the next holidays we will all be able to get the travel discounts available to staff.

I have now found out my next placement, Montreal, Canada with Jumpstreet tours – it is a financial placement. The hunt for somewhere to live begins…
