I’ve been too busy to tell you about my weekend in Amsterdam!

Apple Heaven

In the hustle and bustle of the last week (in the last week, between the pointless physical therapy and other meetings, I had stuff to do every afternoon after work) I forgot (not really) about my trip to Amsterdam last weekend.

It was a splendid long weekend: I left Berlin first thing […]

Ack! Between my Hexenschuss and my trip to Amsterdam…

I’ve gained two kilo in the past two weeks – and I’ll blame one kilo on not going to the gym, and the other kilo on Amsterdam.

With respect to the gym, once the Hexenschuss hit, I stopped going to the gym for over a week, and when I started going to the gym again, […]

My Dutch Impressions

Nobody was injured.

Best looking library award goes to…

Imagine living on a canal in Amsterdam…

Speed Skater Sven Kramer wants you to eat bread. I (heart) bread.

Tuckered

Wow… it’s 9pm, Sunday night, and I am tuckered out.

It’s been one heck of a fantastic weekend–Friday’s work concluded with dinner at a fantastic restaurant on the edge of Rotterdam. That evening, after I got home, I went to bed–and I must have crashed hard, because I did not hear the SMS that I […]

There, Yet Not

I just had a trip to Amsterdam in which I visited the lovely city, yet I didn’t see a single thing.

Seriously; and here is my schedule—which deviated slightly from what I planned because my flight to Frankfurt arrived 3 hours late, which put me into Amsterdam four hours late.

Wednesday, January 9: 17:30 Arrive […]

Travel Advisory

I’ve decided it is time to give fair warning: If I’m booked on your flight, you should probably book away.

In the past year, I’ve had my unfair share of travel problems.

Last night my flight from Detroit to Frankfurt pushed back on time, rolled down the taxiway to the runway, turned onto the runway […]

Frankfurt & Hoosier Bound

In an hour or so I will be on a train to Frankfurt—off to spend the night at a seedy hotel before catching my flights to the States on Saturday morning.

The trip to Indiana is not working out quite the way I planned—I’d originally planned to take the late afternoon flight from Frankfurt to […]

B2B: The Return (Delayed)

The weather which I bitched about yesterday (and, for that matter, the day before), came back to haunt me today.

Come to think of it, I’ve had a streak of really bad luck when it comes to travel over the past few months. I don’t think I’ve blogged about everything, but suffice it to say […]

B2B: Berlin to Bloomington

I can’t say that my trip to Bloomington was super exciting—as I write this I am somewhere over Northern Indiana heading toward my final air destination, Indianapolis.

Pretty much the entire trip was uneventful in a good way. My train from Weimar to Berlin was relatively sedate (the passengers, that is). While taking the S-Bahn […]

Amsterdam, Again

I’ve been to Amsterdam too many times for me to be able to write about it from a naïve tourist’s point of view. Mateo and I had a few short hours to do the express tour of Amsterdam-which included a tour of the Anne Frank House-we were incredibly lucky, because there was no line when […]
