Craving Amsterdam


first day in amsterdam

Filed under: amsterdam street fashion, apartment, out and about, picnic

after schlepping too much luggage, we broke down and paid for a taxi from the airport straight to our apartment.  the minute the taxi got to the city i had a feeling i just can’t explain.   everything is different but it feels familiar at the same time.  i love our hood, it is just out of tourist range so we feel like we really are living with the locals.  got our phone number with sim cards working, wifi worked instantly (thank you scott) even my iPhone works, seems too easy.   took a nap on our hastens bed (comfy) then forced ourselves to get up and explore the city.  the bike thing is awesome.  love what everyone is wearing while riding.  i even found a http://picnicnetwork.org ad in the heart of the city.  tomorrow we get bikes and ride to picnic to be trained.  i am heavily involved in helping with the speakers and they just announced paul is the 2nd photographer in charge!  here we go….

Your trip sounds wonderful with all the sites and a renewing of your visit to your favorite city.

That is great that both of you get to participate in the picnic conference.

Your apartment looks like your modern bent.

Last of all, we miss you already. Looking forward to hearing about all your adventures and seeing the sites with you.

Love, Mom & Dad
