Hey Swin, it would be a pleasure to meet you. Don't be jealous, be inspired. I hope to be there some time in April 2008 as well. Maybe first week of May. Trip Reports keep us all going between trips, don't you think. It is good to enjoy fellowship with strangers through mutual interests. Sorry if th...

Cheers to the fine Channellites in Amsterdam who helped, entertained me and corrected my pronunciation in Nederlands. It has been a terrific trip; my brain is brimming with memories and new information. It is a little sad to leave, but Sly will be back. Time to continue packing. Outside it is rainin...

My point is that useful information is to be gleaned from hanging out met jouw aardig jongens. I learn something every time we talk, Anne. You would easily number among the ten most interesting and intelligent people I know. And you are female. The Channellites I have met so far have been bright and...

Still here, now in Siberie

Am in Siberie and will soon be rolling, but the trip continues to be great. The meet in Siberie was fun, I had eight nights staying at the edge of Wassenaar, a community with more paardenpoep op de straats dan hondenpoep. Unimaginative view from highway motel, but it was an easy ride to the Meijenda...

herfstbloemen

Today I rode the train from Haarlem to Den Haag. It was pretty in the afternoon, cold and clear with a few high clouds in a cornflower blue sky. Between Voorhout and Leiden, there were flower fields. One had a few late blooms, a couple dozen white lilies nodding their heads; some were in full bloom ...

Haarlem is smaller than Amsterdam, but it has all the amenities. Have been staying in the second Indica apartment. Today is kind of a cold, slecht day, but you can't beat the scenery. And the place inside is light and airy, with a wonderful bed, better pans in the kitchen than I have, washer and dry...

Tidings of joy, liquid sunshine. It is definitely cooler, the Adriaan had been facing this direction and turning for a couple hours, but has now stopped. I return to the Lizard People 10 November, Myrte. Considering the effort you put into commuting to UvA, you are right to choose studying over ente...

a day at the beach

Anybody who has been watching the MileHigh's Haarlem Corner webcam may notice that the plants are losing their branches. Fall harvest is here and it is time for them to give their corporeal life up for a higher purpose. Today was another beautiful day, some cloud, only a little cool, a fresh, sunny ...

Like a brother in a strange town, MHD and his very special lady kindly guided Chili Ed, Big D, and me for a Haarlem walking tour. We saw the markt at the massive Gothic Sint Bavo, which really makes a lot of Nederlandse churches look stark. Great conversation and superb weed were enjoyed by all. Haa...

gorgeous weather today

The trees are losing the leaves to the wind, but not without a good flutter. At this moment the sky is blue, the air is fresh, it is lovely in Amsterdam.

All the best to the family, Des. Hello, everyone. Think positive thoughts.

It is 2007; this is a live trip report. Thursday and Sunday were beautiful and clear days, yesterday there was some cool rain. It is grey and cool, while the men who were setting up the Noordermarkt stalls at six this morning are now taking them down. Some impatient motorist on the Prinsengracht hit...
