Well, I have arrived in Amsterdam !! Wow, the flight on KLM was different than any other foreign travel I have done. There was plenty of leg room, but the gentleman in front of me mine as well been sitting in my lap. When he leaned his sit back, his head and cushion were right in my face. I am not kidding. Therefore, it was very hard to get comfortable. Thank god for having the window, is all I can say. I managed to sleep through 2 movies and everything in between.

After leaving the airport and heading out to the countryside (I thought), NOT. Drove past the countryside into an ugly little beach town with a bunch of senior ladies on those scooter things going 30 mph. Watch out they are everywhere. Noordwijk, where I am staying, is nothing like I imagined. I thought I would be out in farmland, tulips, grass. Nope, not the case. I am surrounded by cement. It is nice, but not what I had in mind.

Tomorrow I am off in search of tulips and windmills. And contrary to what you might think, those darn windmills are extremely hard to find. Tulips are everywhere, they are not all in bloom. They guy at the front desk said next week should be perfect. Oh well, I will be home by then.

Did I meantion that the wind kicks up and it is freezing? Well, now you know. ;)

Love you guys.
