Do NOT work with Ambimac- Environmental Solutions

Ambimac- Environmental Solutions in GuimarΓ£es, Portugal is not a company that understands what it means to give their promise and keep it. This company is completely disorganized and has no ethics towards being truthful or fair with their workers. I would assume they feel the same towards their customers as well.
Ambimac hired my husband back in July and asked him to train for a month- without pay even though he has a degree in Environmental Engineering- he did with enthusiasm because he has been wishing to find a career in the field. Over the course of a month spent over 400 euros for gas, tolls and lunches. This stressed our accounts because we had recently moved back to Portugal and only had a limited amount of savings to live off of.
It has now been almost 2 months and still no check. Now, keep in mind this is only supposed to be for 200 euros, which the company cannot seem to come up with. The reason to start was they kept forgetting but after a month the owner started saying they were waiting for money to come in before they had enough to pay anything out. It is now the middle of September and still the owner keeps saying it will be in the bank tomorrow.
I would avoid working with this company!!!! They do not follow through on promises!!!

Gotta give kudos to the Netherlands

As I rush through the Schiphol Amsterdam Airport worried I am going to miss my flight due to an insanely close transfer time, I had to stop and get a shot of this. If you would like to know more about these bikes please click here.
Recharging Stations within terminals encouraging users to pedal for their charge instead of relying on an outlet

What a great way to encourage fitness and environmental issues at the same time
The inventiveness shown in the facilities design may have caused me to miss my connection but I was so in awe of some of the wonders I saw at this international HUB that I had to share with others! 

I come across these delightful installations, which must greatly enhance the traveling experience when getting to go through this airport. I was alone this trip but I bet these distract the families that have been stressed with the travels woes for hours on end.

This huge teddy bear is a grown child's dream come true

Wish I would of had time to explore the Science Museum Installation more

Another bear along with more toys to get the unspent energy out
