From a quick Google Search for car museums in the Netherlands, the Louwman Museum ranked pretty high in positive reviews. Reviews don’t always paint an accurate picture but it seemed good enough to give it a try. Louwman Museum The drive from where I am staying was about 2.5 hours. I was up for the small road trip as I do enjoy driving through this beautiful country. The drive down was fairly foggy as the sun was coming up. The drive was pretty pleasant with minimal traffic but traffic did start growing as I did get closer to Amsterdam. Foggy morning drive down to Rotterdam. I arrived at the m ..read more

An opportunity to work in Holland arose and I jumped all over it. I certainly don’t get many opportunities to travel to Europe let alone live in Europe for a few months. Let the adventures begin. The weekend was filled with prepping for this trip and taking care of last minute things around the house. It was plenty busy but all in the life of this adventurer. The trip started out with last minute packing since the flight was in the afternoon. I decided to meet up with a few good friends for coffee before my flight. A good surprise awaited: a birthday cake and coffee at our favorite spot: Roots ..read more

This year has been flying by. This years winter season in Utah has been a record breaking one. According to ksltv.com the statewide snowpack average hit 29 inches vs the 30 year norm of 15 inches. The previous record was 28.8 inches back in 1952. With this said I certainly have been getting tired of the snow and was missing the warmth of the Hawaiian islands. A simple bowl of poke and visiting a good friend was also well needed. This trip has been in the works for a few months and the cost of flying is definitely clear.

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Credit is a system that allows individuals and businesses to borrow money and pay it back over time. When someone borrows money and repays it according to the terms of a loan agreement, they establish a positive credit history, which can make it easier to borrow money in the future. On the other hand, failing to repay a loan on time can damage a person’s credit history, making it more difficult to borrow.
