Hiking Fair

At the end of last year I thought it was time to take a long walk every year over several days. So I bought the books about the Pieterpad and the Pieterpad project was born. The plan is to start at the end of March with the Pieterpad.

But what do you do after the Pieterpad? The Four Days of Marbella? Also on the agenda, but then …..

So I went to the Hiking fair (Wandelbeurs) in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. My wish was fulfilled. There was enough inspiration to hike my whole life. Unfortunately, mostly in Europe, but it is a start.

So I got to know enough routes on the fair to hike in the Netherlands and Southern Europe in the coming years. Although it wasn’t at the fair, I would like to hike the temple route in Japan too.

In a few years I will go again to the fair to get more inspiration again. If you are looking for hiking inspiration I would recommand you to go once to the fair.

Free workspace in the Netherlands

Free working space

As an entrepreneur with no office, I am always on the look for working spaces. In the Netherlands I found three main places which I can make my office for a day or part of a day. All these places have free wifi.

University Library

Even if you are not a student (anymore) you can work in the university library. There are tables and chairs. There are 11 universities in the Netherlands I know of in which you can use the library as a non-student. The plus of the university library is their opening hours. On weekdays they open at 8 and closes at 22 hours. In the weekend they open at 10 and closes at 18 o’clock. So great hours for early and late starters. Toilets are free to use.

Public library

Another library you can use is the public library. The hours are less then the university library, but still good. The opening hours differ in each city. On Monday and Sunday most of them open late, 12 or 13 o’clock. It depends on the city if the toilet is free. Otherwise you pay 50 ct to go to the toilet. There is enough space and there are free newspapers to read.

Seats2Meet

The last one I use is Seats2Meet you pay here with Social Capital. Basically this means someone else working in Seats2Meet can ask you questions about your area of knowledge. When you reserve a space you have to fill in your expertise. Seat2Meet is an open space with tables you can use. There is free coffee and tea and toilet. It is a great way to get to know more entrepreneurs or other workers working there.

So next time instead of working at home try one of these options.

Be good for yourself

Be good for yourself

With all the hikes I am planning on doing besides my business Databeet. I need to relax. So when I saw that ABNAMRO had a good deal with the program &Meer for a Spa day! I booked one. The Spa day is for free if you are a member of &Meer. Membership is free if you are a client with ABNAMRO.

You can choose which Spa Welness you want to go to and pay only a handlings fee. So I looked for Spa nearby and booked Spa Puur in Tilburg with a handlings fee of 8 euro. I couldn’t wait so I absorbed all the information about Spa Puur on the website.

On a nice warm and sunny February Sunday I went to Spa Puur. It was in one word Amazing. I tried all the inside saunas and baths. It was such a nice day that I sat on the terrace in the sun in my bathing suit and towel wrap around me.

There are 10 different type of saunas to try. For some you have to go outside in the garden. Those I didn’t do, but all the others inside I did each for quarter of an hour. You are just sitting there in your bathing suite absorbing the heat with nothing to do. So your mind relaxes and with that your body.

Between the saunas I did the baths. There was one with salt water in which you are supposed to float like in the dead sea. It was nice, but I wasn’t floating like I did in the dead sea when I visited Jordan. There is also a small pool that loop around going into the garden. A bit cold but nice to do. There are whirlpools and a lavender bath in which you can sit. All in nice temperatures. But one bath I didn’t do. Yes if you know me you know which one, the ice waters. No cooling down for me with ice water.

I had a nice time and would do it again if ABNAMRO has a deal again. I opted to go on a bathing suite day and would do that again. If you have ABNAMRO don’t forget to use this deal. There are Wellness everywhere in Holland, so there must be one near you to use.

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate everywhere

Chocolate festival

In Ecuador, a lot of years ago, I had the opportunity to make my own chocolate on a cacao farm. We harvest a cacao fruit and peeled the cacao. The cacao we had we pulverized. To get some sugar we had to walk the sugar cane mill. The cacao, the sugar and some milk made a delicious chocolate milk. Better then you can get in stores. I can still taste it in my mind…

Chcocolate tasting

Chocolate tasting

So when I saw that there was a chocolate festival in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam, I had to go. Nothing better then source chocolate. So Saturday 23 February I went to the festival and tasted chocolate till I was nauseous.

The difference is that the chocolate in Ecuador and at the festival was pure no artificial ingredients added. You can still taste a bit of the bitterness. I had a lot of chocolate bars, hot chocolate, beer with chocolate, sausage with cacao and cheese with cacao. Also I had for the first time cacao juice from the fruit. I already had tasted how good the cacao fruit is in Ecuador and Cuba and now the juice. It is a pitty you can’t get the juice in shops yet.

Cacao fruit juice

Good & Bad in Chocolate industry

There were a lot of chocolate with a statement. Rokbar chocolate 100% made and owned by women, empowering of women. Tony’s Choconally with their 100% slave free chocolate.

There was also an environment organization Mighty, which makes sure we know that not all chocolate are produced environment friendly. A lot of bush has disappeared for cacao plantations. This are mono plantations destroying the habitat in which monkeys and other animals live.

More and more chocolate producers and supermarket chains in the world are committing to selling chocolate that tackle issues as deforestation, sustainability and human right issues. In the Netherlands these chocolates are not common yet, but will be in a few years as the chocolate market is changing.

Chocolate with a issue

A resolution

With the fasting period coming up I am making a resolution to myself to only buy chocolate that tackles issues from now on. Are you going to do that to? They cost a bit more, but they taste better and are friendly to humans, animals and our environment.

Streetart festival Curacao

Graffiti vs Street art

In almost any city you can find Graffiti. Sometimes this street art, when it is painted with permission. Another difference is that Street art is most of the time more than only words, imaged based.

Famous street art

El Bocho

On my travel I have seen some beautiful street art. In Melbourne there was street art of Banksy. In Berlin you have el Bocho who drew Little Lucy killing her cat in different manners. In Eindhoven you have Lempke, the smiling bulb.

Lempke

Street art Festival

On Curacao there is some street art. Mostly in Punda and Otrobanda made by artist. But this time young talents got to show their work in the Streets of Punda with the street art festival held for the first time. The youngsters showed their talents painting the Streets in Punda and some were even aloud to paint murals. It was nice to see. A pity the festival wasn’t visited by a lot of people. There was one painting which stood out, a drawing of a shoe. If you stood in certain angel, you could see the shoe in 3D.

I hope these youngsters get to show their talents in an annually street art festival in Punda and maybe some murals. I will follow how the street art in Curacao will develop, but in the mean while I will look for street art on my travels.

Curaçao vs Netherlands

I lived both in Curaçao as the Netherlands. So, I am entitled to compare the two with each other.

Public transport

I love the Netherlands for its public transport. It’s good and on time, but too expensive. At bus stops there are signs with bus numbers on it and timetables with the schedule. Curaçao has stops, but no timetable at the stops. So, 1 point for the Netherlands.

Bus stop Curacao

Weather

The changing of seasons has something beautiful, but I dread the cold and all-day rain. It can sometimes rain all day in the Netherlands. On Curaçao it is almost every day the same weather, around 28 degrees and Sunny. And when it rains it is mostly not all day and the temperatures are still good. So, 1 point for Curaçao.

Going to neighboring countries

On Curacao you have only one choice to leave the Island and that’s by flight or flight. In the Netherlands you can take a car to Belgium or so. Or the train to Germany or so. Another option is taking the bus to England or so. A bit further you can take the plane. 2-1 for the Netherlands.

Mondi

Nature

Both have very beautiful nature, but very different from each other. In Holland you can see forest, meadow and moorland. And most of the time it is not faraway. On Curacao you have ‘mondi’, forest of mostly cacti. You have also the beautiful sea with its corals. So it’s a tie on this one.

Nature Holland

Fruits

I am biased on this one. Although you can get almost any fruit in Holland. Nothing beats picking fruits from your own garden. Especially if they are tropical fruits. Fruits from the garden taste better than fruits from the supermarket. Two points for Curaçao on tropical garden fruits.

fruits

Hike

Curaçao is a car Island. it’s accomodated for cars. There are a few places you can hike. The Netherlands although it’s flat you can hike almost everywhere in nature or the city. So one point for the hiking options in the Netherlands.

Hike

It seems like we have a tie. Each one has it’s pros and cons. What else can you compare for these two?

One thing I like about living in Eindhoven

There is a lot I don’t like about Eindhoven, but recently I realised that I actually like something about Eindhoven. I like that it is to far from Schiphol, the big Dutch airport for early morning flights. Because of this I get to stay the day before flying in Amsterdam.

Sometimes I stay with friends which is very nice, but a few times I decided to stay in a hotel with a free shuttle service to airport. So the last time I flew I choose for Van der Valk Schiphol again. I don’t get money for promoting them, but still I like to tell you what I like about the day before flying.

Check in time is at 2 O’clock the earliest. I try to be there around to to check in on time and enjoy my stay for the fullest.

After check in and putting my Luggage in the room. I go to the restaurant for my free drink and a small bite. The small bite is not free but good. After that I head to the swimming pool for a swim. If you are there early it’s not that busy. I swim for an hour and then head to the Welness for the sauna and turkish steam thing. A plus of this is that in the Welness and swimmingpool swim gear must be on all times. In Holland this is not normal for Welness, but I like it. Nothing to see what you don’t want to see.

Soaked and happy I retrieve to my room for some reading in the bathtube. Such a nice treat. After a good night sleep I am more then ready to fly.

Do you have a ritual before flying?

Self-Employed in Utrecht – Guiselaine Capella “combine business with traveling around the world is my dream”

This article was published in Dutch in the Dutch online newspaper DUIC.

Utrecht has over 21,000 freelancers. Special colorful independent professionals, each with its own story. In the coming weeks you’ll find every Wednesday a portrait of a self-employed professional in Utrecht DUIC. Today the story of Guiselaine Capella ButterflyEffect and Databeet. This is the first episode of Laura Stassen, the new editor of this ZZP series.

“I am a location independent entrepreneur. Over the past five months I have traveled around Asia. In 2012 I started my company Databeet. Under this label I’m doing data analysis, I teach Excel and coach (PhD) students in the use of the computer program SPSS (This is a statistical analysis program). Last year I started beside Databeet ButterflyEffect. Under this label I make WordPress sites and I set up Google Analytics and Hootsuite for people. I also coach people in learning daily digital things that they can adapt in WordPress, Google Analytics and Hootsuite themself. ”

“I wander around the world and work anywhere and everywhere. Both inside and outside the Netherlands. Over the past five months, the region around the Pacific Ocean in Asia was my workplace. I have traveled through Singapore, Australia, Bali, New Zealand and Hong Kong. From there I had Skype contact with my customers in the Netherlands. So I worked from locations such as the library, cafes and beach bars. ”

“Freedom I find very important. The ability to work where you want and take the jobs that interest you. I also like the fact that you’re building something from beginning to end. You can see where there is room for improvement and change it right away. “”My favorite job was teaching in Buurthuis Rosa in Lombok, Utrecht. Especially the course “Starting with computer” I really liked teaching that. I had a student who didn’t like computers at all at the beginning. At the end of the six classes the student was proud to tell me that she had sent me a email. At that moment my heart leaps for joy and I am as happy as they are. ”

“My favorite working place is outside in the garden or in nature. Nothing is better than working, and  hearing the birds and to be around nature to me. Unfortunately working from such places is not always possible because of the weather in the Netherlands. That’s why I often work in the Netherlands, in places such as the library, Seats2meet and home. Despite the fact that I like to travel the world, I call Utrecht my city. Once I’m in Utrecht I feel at home, till the travel bug hits again. “”My dream is to live so that I can combine traveling the world and enjoying life with entrepreneurship. I do this for example by my collaboration with Loginc and offering swapping for example with De leefstijlspecialist, so that people without money can also use my services by exchange instead of money.”

I am Dutch! but…….

Mostly when you meet new people when traveling you say your first name and then people ask where you from. Most of the time you remember where people are from and not their name, at least that is how it goes with me. Mostly the conversation stops there or you ask about their travels.

But with me most of the time the conversation doesn’t stop there, when I answer I am from Holland. They pry further: ‘Did you live there all your life? But where were you borne? Your parents were are they from?

I take it as interest and as I am proud of my roots, they are part of my identity! I answer I was borne in the Dutch Caribbean, Curaçao. ‘Oh so you have a Curaçao passport?‘ No a Dutch one, its Dutch territories like Puerto Rico is to USA and Martinique to France.

Then people seemed satisfied and the questioning stops. I take this mostly as interest but some days I wonder about this ………

Celebrate with a blog

Celebrate

Why ?

Everyone is blogging. Inke blogs about vulnerability and everyday things and Shantie on social issues. Well the last one is more opinion sharing than a blog , but hey what’s the difference? Both write regularly. So now you are going to proclaim your opinion about everything on your website that has nothing to do with your business? No, I will save that for my twitter :-). In my blog I will share tips, especially from the programs from which my company derives its existence. It will consists of small tips and tricks which can make your life using these programs more bearable.

What can you expect ?

Regular short blogs as this one about the following programs: Google Analytics, Hootsuite, Excel,  Access, WordPress and SPSS. And yes occasionally on business like this one. The blogs will contain mostly basic tips that everyone can use, especially people who are just starting to us one of these programs. Think along the lines of blogs by Else. Brilliant idea all those Legos ! No, I ‘m not going to work with Lego that is not original anymore. And also not  with Barbie dolls, because then Asha and Atria will be after me for gender bias.

It will be more along the lines of sharing links to other explaining something very well and references where you can find anything. And yes sometimes pieces written by myself to explain options in programs. So think more along the lines of the way Kitty blogs. Oh wait, but now I am creating very high expectations. I mean just the way she links to others in her blog and not her way of blogging. That’s unique and no one can copy that!

Then how?

Like with my company Databeet in my own cocky way! I am a data analysis entrepreneur and can help you learn to use the programs in a better way for your analysis.
