WELCOME BACK TO THE NETHERLANDS

FLYING SLOVENIA TO NETHERLANDS
I arrived here in Amsterdam April 14, 2013 and am departing April 14, 2014 from Amsterdam. I decided to come a few days early, that may have been a mistake? The entire downtown is booked, except the very high end. ALL the AirB&B accommodations were booked too. I found a room in The Hague, at HOTEL STUDIO. A super clean and friendly place and only a 45 minutes from Amsterdam.
I’m in the Netherlands? So rent a bike and find a coffee shop.

I TOLD HER I ALREADY HAVE A GIRL FRIEND
The biking thing is for real here. I saw lots of people of all ages, sexes, and attire riding to their destination, amazing you can survive without a car given the proper facilities.

I could hardly walk down the sidewalk because of all the parked bicycles.

THESE BIKES WERE TAGGED FOR REMOVAL
Hostel’s are great for saving money, because you can cook a few meals at “home.”

I would have liked to stay at this hostel one more night but I booked one night in Amsterdam. It was OK, nothing to bag about, they had a bed. I was 5 minutes from the red light district (didn’t go) and 20 minutes from the airport.
It was a last minute opportunity, thanks to my dear friend Hans, I got to ride in the business class section. Man they eat good up here!
I know I had a different NEXT? topic, (it’s coming). I thought the photos of the Netherlands were worthy of a post.
Thanks for reading.

    hey Jeff, how have you been? we met in January in at the guesthouse in Yangon, Myanmar. Tall French guy, knew everything about the NBA. remember me?
    anyway, I’ve been watching the playoffs and I can’t imagine how glad you must be that LA is dropping 40+ every other night.
    hope you’re doing ok but I’m not too worried for you. Say hi to Bill Walton!
