Aside from the interesting work, I think I'd fallen in love with the idea of being in Amsterdam for the summer - steeling my nerves for cycling, connecting with friends and a network of THNKers and capitalizing on the airport hub for extreme weekend warrior-ing!
Shortly, I will spring into action and start my outreach campaign to generate new leads but for now, I'm disappointed and need to sit with that experience. Like the Dalai Lama once said, “Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck” so I'm practicing patience, resiliency and drinking wine. After all, my motto for the year (which is not quite as brilliant as the Dalai Lama's) is "if everything goes according to plan, it doesn't go according to plan" so I'm getting exactly what I planned.
Nice to meet you...
I'm Andi (hence the blog name). I'm a travel aficionado, passionate eater, tireless explorer of internet rabbit-holes, and amateur thinker. Join me as I give it all up (ok, that's a bit of an exaggeration) and go around the world on a mid-career "soul sabbatical" & year-of-learning to figure out what to be NEXT when I grow up. Won’t you grab a cup of chai and stay a while?
