Today Paul and I are heading to Halifax to spend the night at my sons house before we travel to East Midlands Airport to fly to Amsterdam for a few days. Andrew my youngest son moved there in January. We are taking a lot of the things he could not take himself. Packing the bags is not easy as the weight soon creeps up to the limit. We pack the bag weigh it and adjust it if it needs it. Wayne is also going, Andrew does not know he is coming, or I don't think he does but he, might have guessed. Wayne is also taking some of Andrews things.
We settled in our seats and was off. This is only the second time I have flown, the last time Spain in 2005.
The crossing did a count down so you knew how long it would be before you could cross.
Just about everyone gets about on bikes more than one on some, very often sitting on the parcel rack side ways. Children sitting in carts, seats or even just boxes on the front or back.
I had my first ever taste of Heineken you got a glass of it at the end. I am not a drinker but it was very nice
I was in a lot of pain too much walking . On the way back Andrew took us to Dam Square. Very pretty with so many people around even at midnight.
Then through the Red light District it was all right not at all like I thought it would be. Just ladies in windows. When we got back to the hotel I laid flat and took some OROMORPTH. I was pleased to be back.
Back in the city, we looked around a bit more then Andrew had to go to work. We went back to the hotel for a rest. Later we looked around a bit more and popped into Andrews shop. As we were all tired, we decided to not look around any more tonight.
After getting what we needed we went for lunch at a wok place where you choose what you want and its cooked for you very nice and soon filled me up.
