Three Things — On the Move

Three Things, my Wednesday post series, inspired by my love for bite-sized, tiny but mighty pieces of information.

Random Thought – Good lighting is absolutely a deal breaker for me. Overhead and a harsh white is the worst. Add in a bare bulb and I’m sad. Actually sad. No thanks. I’m in a hotel room with lighting game on point. It’s a ten. I want to curl up here and not leave. Except to go to the HUGE bathtub and soak and repeat. We don’t have a bath in our place in Italy so it’s especially a novelty. Told you this was random.

House shopping this year? What about dialing in your next home via Amazon? From groceries, to real estate, Bezos is everywhere.

I’m in the Netherlands. In Den Haag, actually. A city about 25 minutes outside of Amsterdam. I flew in from Rome this morning and I was struck by a couple of things:

1. People line up in lines. Like actual lines rather than the Italian grouping of chaos.

2. When the subway pulls up, people wait and let the others off. WHAT? I forgot that was a real life thing.

3. There’s fresh juice smoothies and fruit for sale. YESSSS.

Now we all know how much I love the motherland, so don’t think I’m ditching it for Northern Europe, but, it IS a refreshing change. I will have you know, my favorite part of today was when the Italians clapped when the plane landed. Best.
