Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, well known for its large variety of the green plant commonly known as weed, was our first city of this 5 week adventure. This blog covers both days.
So first a quick sit rep of whats been happening for the last couple of months. Nothing much! Working, flying and organising this. I worked at a printing company called Bek where I spent many hours rolling posters! And I am now OFFICALLY enrolled in the Technical University of Twente.
Only a short boat trip away from my granddads house lies the 2nd largest city in the Netherlands, Rotterdam. The ferry is a very convent way of getting round if you are staying up-stream in the towns of Ridderkerk
From mid April to early May a lot of the dutch countryside is transformed into a huge colourful patchwork quilt. With over 7 million tulip bubs blooming every year in just that area, its no surprise that you will see a lot that are just a little bit different from their neighbours.
Lot’s n Ern’s World Tour has officially had its first outing to the highest hill, not mountain, of the Netherlands, the city of Maastricht and a town called Thorn.
Just a heads up of what has been happening or not happening since arriving in the clog country two months ago. SitRep stands for Situation Report.
While visiting my uncle and kids, I got to explore the city where my parents went to university and of course met, Utrecht. Located round the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal, Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands and home to many other canals.
