AF Style


One thing I love about being here is our Friday traditional dress day!  The details that these tailors put into their clothes are amazing.  The buttons are covered with fabric, they stitch every single bead into an outfit, and add cute little doodads to every part they can.  It has been great fun to just give someone some material and say.. make what you will.  It’s quite the adventure.

So colorful, so bright, so fun.  The clothes match the personality of the folks here.  You gotta love it.  I have almost two more years of Fridays.  Looking forward to each one!

It’s about being alive and feisty and not sitting down and shutting up even though people would like you to.  –  Pink

As we are winding down into the final days of our vacation, I present to you… a small, still, calm glimpse into an incredibly active vacation.

Bikes and Birds in Amsterdam


You can’t show more balance than a bike or a bird.  Unless you are looking at 2 drunk men on top of a building.  Oh Amsterdam.

So yeah, I mean, I guess you could, but for this trip, it was a perfect theme to end the month.  Work life and travel balance.  But back to birds and bikes.

 

I hope you enjoyed.

Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.

Looking down looking back


It’s easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top – Henry Ward Beecher

The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t always have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it. – Chris Pine

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.  May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. – Edward Abbey

People who don’t travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what’s in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live. — Martin Yan

There is nothing insignificant in the world. It all depends on the point of view.  – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To experience sublime natural beauty is to confront the total inadequacy of language to describe what you see.  Words cannot convey the scale of a view that is so stunning it is felt. — Eleanor Catton
