Holiday...Time to unwind

Afbeelding
It is holiday now.. 1 week is gone and another 1 to go. No train-rides early in the morning to work and the days (till now) are passing by in a pleasant way.. Snow came .. and snow went (actually it is really sunny here now) and so did those alternative "snowmen" in our street. I couldn't resist to put secretly a little candle in one of them...My flu is luckily gone now (have been really sick for almost 2 weeks) and because of that I missed the "Charity Day in my School". I would have presented with my colleague Annemiek the X-factor and we would have been dressed as old English couple and as a Toreador with a beautiful woman with lots of cleavage..We got the costumes from De Nationale Reisopera in Enschede were usually students of us do their training. It was great fun to search for the costumes..I am knitting the socks for the publication in the sockpattern-book. They need to be ready and send to London in the beginning of January.

Schooltrip To Antwerp..

This monday and tuesday my Collegue Annemiek and myself made trip with our class (22 students) to Antwerpen. They are in their 2nd year and Antwerp really is a city with a lot of Fashion to have a look at. We arrived at Central Station Antwerpen round 1 o'clock (I took the train from 9.45 from Deventer). The railway-station has just been renovated and now everything was in X-mas mood with X-mas trees everywhere. I always wonder why in Holland you can't put on trees like this in railway stations because the will be broken down in a hour by vandals. A few months ago I watched this video and I always hope something as this would happen to me.. Have a look here. The hostel was only a 5 minutes walk from there and was a basic accommodation (so totally the opposite of my design hotel in Copenhagen). Most of the students were expecting a more "posh" hotel and one even said that a Prison looks even better. ( I than immediately replied: didn't know you were a criminal....…

Jeg elsker Kobenhavn......

Warning:This blog post will contain loads of pictures..... Last week I was for 3 days in Copenhagen to visit 4 of my students who are doing their intern ship at 3 different fashion firms...I always love to go to Copenhagen and have been there many times in the past (counting it all up it must have been more than 50 times) and I know very good the way round there. The flight on Tuesday was round 10 and I arrived at Kastrup airport a bit more than 1 hour later. It is very easy to go by train to the Central station which will take you there in less than 15 minutes. I had booked a room at Wake Up Copenhagen which is situated right behind the station and it is a very small stroll to go there. The hotel is brand new and around it is a building site but that didn't matter me. The rooms are practical and functional and all rooms have a double bed and a simple bathroom. And they have the Scandinavian , simple touch as the curtains show with a simple design and the clean bedsheets.For me th…
