Noordvijk, Van Oranje Hotel, Holland’s finest destination and home to greatest events, according to the website. One of the weirdest places I’ve ever seen, if you ask me. But weird in a good way, photographically at least. Don’t get me wrong, room is clean, bed comfy, breakfast abundant and delicious. It’s just plain weird.
Day was long, a flight in the early morning, a meeting rolling non stop till 5PM, and then a couple of km of walk under the shittiest weather you can imagine to move from the weird hotel to the restaurant. Noordvijk itself is kind of a weird place, strange and huge hotels rising all along the coastline. But under strong wind and rain, it gets almost hellish, with waves rumbling on the shore, salty water raining furiously, and sand-wind scrubbing everyone so stupid to stand on its way.
Dinner was nice and I had the right amount of wine to actually enjoy the horrible walk back to the hotel. Five ports with my Northern European colleagues and now I’m finally resting in my room, ready for a deep drunk sleep with no Agata to wake me up before time 🙂
