Het is nu mei! Ik kan niet begriep het! Ik heb niet veel nederlands geleerd sinds maart.
In other news I am now in The Netherlands. I have arrived in one piece. It was an eventful journey. Alas I didn’t get searched in the airport but my baggage did. Queue funny looks from security when he opened up my toiletries bag to find half a box of tampons! (face palm moment) When the floor didn’t swallow me up I carried on being searched. Who knew you had to declare contact lenses and toothpaste!!
After repacking my bag in Pret a Manger and nearly leaving my socks behind we boarded. The flight was delayed by 30 minutes but it was a pleasant enough journey. Oh and I saw the TALLEST MAN IN THE WORLD. Like literally his hips where in line with my shoulders! He was unbelievable!
Schipol have changed their toilet roll supplier – I wasn’t impressed! Pit stop in Albert Heim for water, sweets, wine and plastic cups.
Found the car, that was interesting! Hybrid automatic – fun times! After two wrong turns coming from Schipol we took the scenic route south. After 2 hours we made it to Rotterdam and a whistle stop tour for Birthday cake and drinks for one of my Dutch friends. Discovery – Beethovenlaan is in literally EVERY village. Its amazing how close to the curb an English girl can get!!
We unintentionally surprised the Dutch family. I’ve never had so many kisses. 3 went out the window, it was more like 3 million!! Zo mooi en zo lekker! It felt so good to be home!
After a fake call to the hotel about our “delayed” flights we got to the hotel at 00:05! Oh and when finding the hotel we missed the carpark turning and had to take a 24minutes round trip back to the front of the hotel thanks to one way systems and quite possibly and illegal u-turn! Jack the concerge was a gem but we politely declined the early morning wake up call he offered. Now in bed, with a plastic cup of wine and reliving the escapades of the day. Roll on tomorrow!
