The first week in The Netherlands, A few small projects..
As day’s past we got the news that my mother would get a new apartment, she sold her little house in the North of the Netherlands to return to the area my sisters live and we all grew up in. Only thing was waiting to get the keys so we could paint walls, decorate and move furniture. But it would take at least another week, so I started on a world map for my little niece, something she wanted for some time now and already asked me to make her before we left Portugal. Luckily there’s a DIY shop in almost every place in Holland, and so finding the materials and tools wasn’t such a big hassle as it is back home. It took some time cutting out the details with a hand scroll saw, and making borders with a solder iron, but in the end she got what she wanted on the wall of her bedroom.
After a week the van was repaired and we could finally start our tour thru the country to deliver stuff and visit family and friends...
Next time: A week that actually felt like a holiday!
