If you've been wondering why this blog has sucked even more than usual, it's because I've been in Europe. Specifically in the Netherlands exploring the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague and Delft. But being the intrepid blogger that I am, posts still kept coming even while I was across the Atlantic.

I had a really good time. The Netherlands is a great country. Lots of history, easy public transportation and most people are physically fit from walking. Not many people drive cars there, they use foot or pedal power if not on a light rail or train.

The food was good too. A big club sandwich appears to be a country favorite. Italian food is also a trendy item there currently too. A waiter told me Heineken beer was "crap." The beer of choice seemed to be Jupiler.

So for the next week, I will be posting about my trip and sharing photos and information you probably could care less about. Call it more information on the Netherlands than you wanted to know about! Don't worry, I will be mixing in other posts too.

  1. Hey, I know the places in your pics! I've been to Amsterdam and the Hague (my grandfather was born there too) but not Delft. I look forward to seeing all your pictures.
