One more sleep! I am beside myself with glee! This vacation could not be coming at a better time. New York is expected to have rain storms tomorrow and there might be flight delays. I certainly hope that doesn’t happen! I just want to get there!
If all goes as planned, I will arrive just before 11:00 Thursday morning. Getting luggage and clearing customs takes about another 30 minutes or so. Anneke and Bert will be waiting near the customs exit. YAY! I will get there just in time for lunch and a good nap. I think if I sleep a few hours I will be good to go.
I don’t care where we go. I don’t care what we do. I just want to be there. In Amersfoort.
Oh yes! Turrets!
Winding streets with shops!
I cannot wait to be surrounded by charm and history – and the great company of my friends who are always so gracious and kind.
And no, I do not go to the Netherlands to get stoned. I don’t smoke….anything. Americans have such a distorted view of the Netherlands…especially Amsterdam. When I say I am flying into Amsterdam, people raise their eyebrows and carry on like I am some sort of drug addict. That’s like saying if you go to Wisconsin you are only going there to buy cheese.
I have a busy day at the office before I go. Better get cracking!
