im in GERMANY! where the keyboard is retarded, z-y are back to front :S but i will battle on. what an amazing start to my time in europe. i have seen white cliffs as i sail away from the UK toward france. where u land in the industrial (and not very pretty) part of the country... driven for two hours only to not notice entering belguim cos there is literally no borer or customs or immigration etc. drive through beautiful belgium from one side to the other in about 2 hours. and over a similar border to the netherlands. stopped for lunch and had to pay for a loo, unfortunately i hadnt changed any euro (€) yet so no weeing for laura :( but was a great drive. into AMSTERDAM! the marajuana and sex capital of the world. amsterdam is amazing so much life and characture, saw a live sex show, very...eye opening. we stayed the night and woke this morning to go the the anne frank museum, it was so somber and quiet. amazinglz eerie. did some souveneir shopping and headed off for germany. where i find myself now in saint goar. a beautiful little village on the rhine river, definitely no sex shows here. it is like a fairlytale with castles etc littering the skyline. and green and lush. the grape vines are on the most amazingly steep hills, its incredible to see. having a very relaxed night tonight, them tomorrow is off to the town of munich, to a beer hall... should be a good time, despite my hatred of the nectar hahaha... the contiki kids are awesome fun and am having an ace time!
