I was supposed to meet my bro’s girlfriend yesterday. I am not the most social person anyway but I had to brace myself for it. She had come all the way from Canada. Anyway we arranged a meeting but it turns out they both were away that evening… and guess where they are.. in Amsterdam, Bicycle country no less.
The worst bit is that they are going by car. Fools!
I did suggest that they go by coach which is miles cheaper than the car and less hassle but they said it was a lastminute arrangement. It sounds poorly arranged and they will have to put up with the horrible drive to the Ferry but perhaps when they reach Europe it won’t be so bad. I don’t know what the roads are like towards Amsterdam but they can’t be as bad as in Britain.
I also mentioned that in Europe that they have tougher laws on the motorist. I wonder if they even have a warning triangle in the back as some of these are compulsory in such countries.
Oh well, they can only learn from it. I expect that they will have the annoyance of the motorway on the way back too. After that, they will need another holiday!
Other than that, it sounds a great trip. I have asked him if he can take some pics of flowery bikes and maybe go to the Anne Frank museum. I doubt they will visit it as they are not very ”empathic people” but we shall see.
I very much doubt they will even go to the reknowned Sex Museums too.. but you never know:-)
I am just reading Anne Frank’s diary so it was particularly interesting that they are visiting Amsterdam.
