Everyone is trying to find the work-life balance and enjoy their work
Enjoying family time with the Van Dorps on their farm south of Amsterdam. If only we had the water to grow lawn like theirs!
The farm stay:
AFTER four days and three nights it was time to leave our new Dutch home and family, the van Dorps of Hazerswoude-Dorp, south of Amsterdam.
It has been an eye opening experience and we've learnt so much about Dutch life, dairy farming, the Dutch countryside and of course the ever changing Dutch weather.
From drying out our clothes and shoes with a hair dryer on day 1 in Amsterdam, we them got sunburnt on our 40 kilometre bike ride on day 4.
The countryside was beautiful and changes rapidly minute to minute, village to village.
You can be riding in the middle of a city and 10 minutes later are back in the middle of farming country.
Australia and the Netherlands are half the world apart but family life and business still function very much the same - everyone is trying to find the work-life balance and enjoy their work and do it well.
