I have engaged our lovely helper (aka Juno) to share with you today two brand news that are strongly related to the post title. The first one maybe is the most obvious: a new Mac laptop! My workmates know how I had been complaining for more than a year of how slow and outdated was my computer; I am not kidding when I tell you that it took like 20 minutes to start up and the same applied when I had to open heavy consuming applications; that was very unproductive for work and a pain whenever we needed to do something with image editing. So, finally a MacBook Air arrived to the rescue (and to my excitement)!
As it is my first time ever with an Apple laptop, I am now starting to learn the basics and have watched several tutorials to help move from a Windows to an Apple OS. I have learnt how to use the “cmd” key, that type of simple things (wonder!) and all the movements of the mouse trackpad (that was really easy to start obsessing about)
I know many of you must be very advanced Apple users, so I thought I could ask for your skilful advice: is there any essential application I should have? Do you have any tricks like shortcut keywords and so? well, anything will be helpful for this silly beginner!
The second new is that we are going to be in Amsterdam next week for a couple days! I’m really looking forward to visit the city as lots of wonderful images pop in my mind of the canals, colorful houses and thousands of bikes everywhere. I will be there on work due for a day, but then Dani will join me for a couple days more to explore the city; let’s cross fingers the weather will be nice to us. The trip has been a very last minute thing and we have not had enough time to look up in blogs for recommendations, so again I come to you to ask for advice: Have you ever been to Amsterdam? or Are you living there right now? What should we not miss for the world? Is there any secret hidden place that you think we will love? Where is the best place to buy/eat cheese? (I had to ask, we are cheese nuts).
I can’t wait to hear all your recommendations, we are all ears! :)
Juno suggested that she may introduce me to the new (to me) laptop, she is a smarty pants girl.
She even added herself as the profile image. She chose her favorite moment, eating the malt paste.
She seems good!
Half cat, half mac.
…and like this she is gone, we have a little Houdini at home.
Amsterdam! We bought the small lonely planet because we are (sadly) only visiting for a couple days and because we (secretly) hope we will have extra more valuable tips from you :)
