Originally I am from Breda, a lovely city in the south of the Netherlands. But this country is sickening every year, it will have to fight rising sea levels as no other country in the world. But as long as the tourists visit the tulips, the red light district in Amsterdam is crowded and they smoke the dutch cannabis, everything is okay. The real panic in Holland starts, when “winter” arrives!! The last decade they have not had a real winter back home, and I wonder when they will change the lyrics of Christmas songs and start singing about a green Christmas instead.
Talking about snow….
When I was about 7 years old my dad toke me for the first time to the high arctic. He’s a location manager and knows the world as nobody else. He was running a project in northern Scandinavia, showed me the wilderness that remained there and introduced me to dogsledding, snowmobiles, moose hunters and so much else! Now years later I often think bank to it and believe that this might have been the fundament for my love for the north!
