Ich bin de shizer!
A few cool things have happened since I last checked in with you all… went on a canal cruise through Amsterdam and saw a lot of things that seemed cool at the time – like the 7 bridges – but post-tour you wonder why the hell you took photos of some stuff… still, was a good way to checkout the city all from the comfort of a seat. I like not walking. And especially not having to carry a backpack.
We did a few more typical Amsterdam things; went to the Van Gogh museum (here’s where I mention Drew and Ash got of the tram, then the driver closed the door before I could even get off. Bastard.), took a photo of myself standing on a giant Amsterdam sign, went to the Heinekin brewery, slept in a giant clog, drank some beers, and cut up my hand in a restaurant. Good times!
But back to the Heinekin Brewery. Here, have a few photos:
The morning we caught the train to Berlin we did some basic grocery shopping for supplies to keep our bellies full on the 6-hour ride at which point I came across a giant ball of cheese. Oh yes, the signalling of the Summer of George (oh how I wanted to bite into that cheese like it was an apple).
That was yesterday, and I could begin to feel my throat give me a big middle-finger salute. I think I’m coming down with the swine, my nose is running like a tap and it feels like I’ve been munching on fibreglass. Good times.
We went for a stroll and came across my European amigos, and then made a bee-line for the wall. A couple cool photos for you:
Today we went to the zoo, home to the famous polar bear Knut. Lots of cool animals here, lots of awesome pictures, I’ll detail this section when I get some more time. Had a pretty decent giant pretzel (to be honest it could have been better), even saw dad, and a few rangas 😉
Looks like we’re no longer doing Stockholm (too much of a pain in the butt to get too, way too far from anywhere I want to go after it too). Thinking maybe Prague, or Munich, or who knows, maybe I’ll just jump a random train and explore wherever it arrives.
