Today was my day in the Netherlands - in and out in one day so unfortunately I didn't see anything beyond the train window.. I was up at 03:45!! Aghh!! Flew to Amsterdam, train to the office, work, train back to the airport, fly to Cork..bed!! But seeing this from the train window was definitely a good moment. I had my camera out and was trying to snap some photos of the dutch countryside when I saw this and managed to capture it! I realised today that having german and english will give you a bit of an advantage in the Netherlands language-wise. This graffiti “Alles Komt Goed” was similar enough to the german “Alles Kommt Gut” for me to realise what it meant in the millisecond we flew by on the train (so I could grab my camera for the snap). Loosely it means “Everything will turn out good..” which was a nice sentiment to read right before I met the new people and new office for the first time! (By the way, when I reviewed the photo I also spotted a big gathering of people to the back of the photo..I can only imagine it was an emergency drill or something? A weird thing to capture! ;)
