I just landed in Amsterdam, where I will hopefully be staying in one place for a few weeks. I do need some rest after more than 3 months of back-to-back retreats.
The trip for 13 American real estate investors in Puglia was a great success (watch this impression video). It’s so cool to show people the ‘unknown’ side of ‘my’ Puglia. Just in time, I had all three Airbnbs ready. If you want, you can stay in my TinyTrullo, Studio or Townhouse in Ceglie this summer or autumn and receive all my personal local tips in a special ‘guidebook’.
🎈 Another ‘did you know’: My birthday is on the same day as my mom! 53 years ago I was her birthday present… Unfortunately, we are rarely in the same country on this day. This year I first celebrated my birthday with breakfast on the square in ‘my’ village Ceglie Messapica (can you pronounce it?) with a group of Americans, and in the evening in a traditional Italian way at the beautiful Lake Bolsena.
On my way from Puglia to the annual Dynamite Circle conference in London I had to make a stopover in Rome. A train journey of a few hours and I was at the beautiful lake, where my friend Annaliza has a house. She picked me up at the station and drove me straight to a restaurant where 10 people I didn’t know were waiting for me with balloons, presents, Prosecco and pizza. At the end of the evening, we were all friends! “Strangers are just friends you have not met yet”
The next morning we swam in the lake and after breakfast, I started the long journey to London for the DC conference. There I experienced 3 inspiring days with 100 successful location independent entrepreneurial friends. I will be posting some useful business eye-openers about that in the near future. But first… Amsterdam, apple pie, walking, getting some work done and seeing friends!
