I had a boring drive from Bremen to Hannover and the only thing that worries me is the fact that I’m losing cooling liquid which I have to fill up every 1000KM but next Tuesday he will go into maintenance for his last check as in a couple of weeks I will get a new car. The old one has now 137.000 KM and I guess I will break the 140.000 until then.

Coming into my favorite Holiday Inn is always a pleasure but when I entered the bathroom I was shocked! The paper was hanging the wrong way!!!!


Bremen Holiday Inn 279-28

September 26, 2011

This week starts in Bremen and of course in the Holiday Inn. Hotel is OK and refurbished. Breakfast is FOC and also the WiFI is FOC, what else do you want ? πŸ™‚

and the best part? Also the paper hangs correct πŸ™‚

A friend is currently in Rochester-USA and staying in the Fairfield Inn.

Good to see that over there they also know how the paper should be hanging πŸ™‚

We had a family reunion party which always takes place every 5 years. Just like last time it was in Breda a city in the south of the Netherlands. Not the same was the paper situation! I thought the paper was hanging properly but my daughter found out that it hangs the wrong way around!! I couldn’t believe it 😦

whatever, it was a lovely reunion and we had a jolly good time….but then….We had bought some stuff to take back to Germany and these items were in a cooling box which I left in the car thinking that my battery would handle it….it didn’t and we needed the help of my uncle to get the car back to run.

Best Western Leipzig 277-27

September 14, 2011

As said, from Hannover I drove over to Leipzig (or Leibschiss as my Israeli colleague Danny calls it) for an exhibition. This was initially a Holiday Inn but a couple of weeks ago I got a letter telling me that it is now a Best Western. Funny enough you still find evidence all over the place that it was a Holiday Inn like signs in the bath room or going on the Internet which shows you the Holiday Inn login window πŸ™‚

Whatever, it’s a hotel and I got an “upgrade” basically I now have 3 rooms but all of them are tiny…

well the paper is hanging correct and that is all that counts. btw, looking at the totals, 90% are hanging correct and 10% are hanging wrong. πŸ™‚

And another proof :)

It is nice to see that more and more people actively help me to proof that paper should always hang away from the wall. Thx Tomas πŸ™‚

…3 days later I’m again back at my favourite Holiday Inn and the more you come the more you chat with the people….like being at home…scary….

It’s only for one night as tomorrow I will go to an exhibition in Leipzig. I also booked the local Holiday Inn overthere but they sold it so now it is a Best Western….We’ll see…

Anyhow, paper is hanging again correct and that’s all that counts πŸ™‚

I drove today from our HQ in Belgium to Hannover and what do you do while driving and getting hungry in Germany? Right, you stop and eat a bloody Bratwurst with fries, mustard and mayonaisse….

bloody €7,- for this crap and when I arrived at the hotel I had a mega eruption on the loo!!

thank god, the paper was hanging properly πŸ™‚

Hotel IBIS Waterloo 273-27

September 7, 2011

this week starting in Belgium in my “beloved” plastic fantasic Ibis hotel. They refurbished the rooms which looks better but still it will always be our “plastic fantastic” hotelΒ 

paper was hanging correct, so I’m a happy chap πŸ™‚
