My wife and I recently fulfilled a really long term dream of moving to the east of the Netherlands far away from the busy life of the west. This means that instead of being a 15min drive from the Rotterdam office, I am now a staggering 1h15m. Wooooh!
It won't be a hassle, what with all the international projects with project team members spread all over the world, I am definitely a virtual worker; but when it comes to a world post Corona lock-downs, a simple quick beer after work with the peeps will have to be a meticulously planned affair!
