I often think Wok to Walk only tastes that good because of all the weed (and sometimes beer) i get through in a day in Amsterdam!!.....the same reason i think Febo tastes ok personally :lol:

Someone told me there was no such thing as health & safety in Holland. It's like the smoking ban....it is there in theory! One thing made me laugh the other day, a sign was put up in the warehouse saying no access beyond this point without a high-vis top......and the next day, it had been ripped do...

Thanks for the tips Dan haha. Health and Safety seems virtually non existent in the warehouse I work in, and the fact that I have only recently done the dangerous goods course after nearly 4 months here, kind of sums up the attitude of the work place :) Got a couple of new pics. I been going to Empi...

It's going great so far thanks. I see this time as a transition period so to speak really before I am truly living the dream. So this job and house are both temporary until I find something more permanent. But i am still loving the fact and appreciate the chance of living in Holland for sure. Can't ...

Even though Chelsea have already won the league :wink: I am still planning on watching the Man United game later tonight....depending on whether I am working tomorrow or not...and if United win or not....it could turn into a messy night! Hoping Walcott keeps up this form though, would be good for En...

I feel you mate, I worked for a similar agency but they were even less organised, and often txted just a couple of hours before work... I'm sure some of the lads who are now working for your place have told you about it. Despite the shit job I found the quality of life in Holland in general to be m...

Thanks for the messages everyone. Nice to see some familiar names as always...i actually find this board similar to Amsterdam itself - after the first post/toke it feels like you never left haha. Firstly here is a pic of some Amnesia i bought in Anyday last night... http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/...

Some pics from Hoofddorp

I managed to get some pics uploaded, but the connection is really slow so I am being lazy and just giving the link to the album. I don't have many yet but there isn't a great deal to photo in Hoofddorp to be honest. Photo Album They do have one coffeeshop though called Superfly (which is actually on...

Cheers guys. It's all happening so fast I can't get time to take it in, although it makes it more exciting this way. I got the job through a European recruitment agency based in Kent. I wont give the name here as I doubt they would appreciate me advertising on a coffeeshop website before I even star...
