Paris and Amsterdam

Hello there – it is nearly 2 am in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, but I wanted to quickly update the world. Paris was fantastic — after an eight hour bus trip I arrived on Thursday evening and spent a pleasant 2.5 days there. Our apartment near chatelet was very central and much ground was covered on foot. Local delicacies were consumed (wine, cheese, baguette, crepes, mussels, fries etc) and a good time was had.

Last night the night bus took us through Belgium and an absurd snowstorm to Amsterdam, where we were thrown out into the freezing cold at 7 am. So a long day here. Red light district quite a surreal sight to behold but the city is very beautiful (lots of canals). If only it weren’t freezing!

More exploring in store for tomorrow then Berlin on Tuesday!
