It’s all Double Dutch to me…

9 05 2012

So you remember when I wrote about my last trip to Düsseldorf? No? What do you mean “no”? You don’t hang on my every word?! But you said you would!

OK – hurry up. It’s here. The rest of us will wait…

Anyway, I find myself about to set foot once more within its city boundary. Thanks to Kianys, I am armed with a recommendation for a good meal this time as a bonus. In the meantime, I flew in to Venlo in The Netherlands last night and spent today at my company’s international headquarters there, meeting my new colleagues. I’m staying in a pretty little hotel by the name of “De Bovenste Molen“, which I would heartily recommend to anyone finding themselves in the area.

I was so jet lagged last night I went to bed early, attempted to read a few pages of my current book and then slept soundly, except for the predictable West-East transit false start at 4am. Happens to me every time I fly to Europe from Vancouver. Managed to snag a couple of extra hours despite that, before ultimately being awoken by “Evolving Dream” emanating ever so insistently from my BlackBerry.  [Go on, MM, you can’t say I don’t set them up for you!]

Today was a busy round of meeting the beautiful people of head office, and then a quick spin around the mill pond before dinner. Some of the photos were from aforementioned RIM device and seem a little blurry. Or maybe it’s my eyes. Dinner though was exquisite, if a little pricey.

I don’t know what you mean. And I’ll leave the beautiful people and the RIM device well alone.

And of all the photo info, the one thing I want to know is what the wine was, and whether it was any good.

The wine was a blend, French, and quite drinkable. I forget the grapes, but the price made it less than wonderful.

Soon I’ll know well the price of wine.
