After the near catastrophe involving me forgetting our day-pack in a bistro (see last entry, I got it back) we were faced with another catastrophe - it was late, we were tired, and we needed to figure out where the heck to go next.

This is where the macbook really proved its essentiality (not a word). We had originally intended to go to Luxembourg from Antwerp, but a few hours of googling vacancies and prices changed our minds.

A slight panic set in as we realized tomorrow was creeping up and

Finally some down time after a whirlwind of traveling, eating, seeing sights and meeting some interesting people. I have a lot to update, so I will let the pictures tell the story.

ACP and I arrived in Prague today after a six hour train ride from Munich. I didn't get much sleep so we are taking it easy tonight before we go exploring the city tomorrow.

I'll post pictures from each city. This entry will cover the end of Amsterdam and our time in Antwerp. If time permits, I'll try to post

Had to purchase some expensive internet time from my hotel in Zurich Switzerland in order to book some rooms in Munich, Germany for the next leg of our trip.

I'm unable to go into details, but we survived a very rainy Antwerp, Belgium only to make a decision at 4a.m. to catch a 5a.m. train to Zurich. It was well worth it. The people and sights of Switzerland have been absolutely fantastic.

A quick shout out to all the great people that have crossed our path:

- Yannick and Paul - two re

On a train from Amsterdam Centraal to Antwerp Centraal. The last few days were amazing. It poured rain on Sunday which was a good excuse to finally sleep in. We checked out Haarlembuurrt in the rain and received a funny look at the natural food store when we forgot to weigh our own fruit.
Our hotel was a little pricey but it was worth the cost of a good sleep for our first few nights. We ended up staying a third night because we loved the location and the room – a view overlooking the Keisergra

We have arrived … the airport. Already, I have managed to screw up twice:

1. By somehow thinking I was supposed to tape my boarding pass to our check-in luggage. The lady at the counter said I was the first person to ever do that.
2. By walking casually through the metal detector with a pocket full of keys.

Other than those two small setbacks, we are doing fairly well. We have been navigating the airport for almost one hour with zero fatalities. If we can manage to keep this pace fo
