College Town Hospitality – Utrecht, Netherlands

My apologies for not keeping up as I should…I have lots to tell! The longer I spent in Amsterdam the more I enjoyed it. I was there a week and I got lost a ton which really helped me to get to know the place. I met so many great people who made my days and nights so exciting.

Red Lights and Musuems – Amsterdam, Netherlands

On the train out of Germany, I found my my mood getting lighter. As enjoyable as it was, the history was quite heavy so it was nice to see cornfields and windmills. The countryside changed quite drastically in a short time. I was playing a very lucky game of Yahtzee in which I got 4 Yahtzee’s in 2 games! Michelle didn’t want to play games any more with me after I had already kicked her butt in Gin so I decided to study the scenery.
