Another Update Who Woulda Thought?

I never got to finish yesterday because I was running out of time. I definitely felt like a spy, being in Europe and quickly typing away at the computer because of a time limit. So we met up in Amsterdam after I struggled and found the train from the Airport. I even had the chance to go for a walk on my own and explored a little bit. Once Vanessa was here we went and found our hostel. It wasn't too bad. Then we enjoyed breakfast at a small cafe. Basically we just walked around ALL DAY long, which was quite exhausting. We did visit the Red Light District and looked at the sights, which were quite unattractive. Sorry to disappoint, but I did not end up going to a Coffee Shop and did not try anything new. It's okay though I was delirious enough from being up for a gazillion hours. Due to my exhaustion we called it a night at like 11. The city was still very much alive, which was shown by the people yelling outside at 3AM.

This morning we woke up and had breakfast in Amsterdam before parting ways, me to Brugge and Vanessa back to the Castle. First I took a train to Brussels and then switched over to a train for Brugge. Belgium is a different world than the Netherlands, there are hardly any signs in English and it was a bit intimidating. I did manage to find my train with a few minutes to spare and wound up in Brugge. Everybody has raved about it and they were absolutely correct, its great. I like it much better because it is smaller and much more quaint than Amsterdam. You can walk everywhere and since I got here at 17:00 I checked in to the hostel which is very nice, even better than last night. I then went for a walk for the next two hours and saw a ton of sites. It is all a precursor for my full day tomorrow. I have also made up for the low number of pictures and taken almost eighty this afternoon alone. The sun has been out and I am not sure if that will be the case tomorrow, so I am taking extra pics today. I am still indecisive about dinner because there are a ton of choices, though it is much more expensive to eat here. I am thinking of just taking it easy tonight and going with some fine Pizza Hut, either that or some other pizza place I saw. Hey its been two days since I had pizza I am having cravings.

I hope you all are doing well. I am tired, but happy to finally be in one place for a couple of days. Talk to you soon.
