Thread: This European Life: an Open Travelogue

  1. #11
    Writing from beautiful Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. I could not load the pictures on this hostel computer, but I will on Monday. Until then, enjoy this little piece of writing from a city so vicious, it leaves Las Vegas to shame.

    This European Life: Five Snippets from Amsterdam

    Meetup tomorrow!

    New post this week, narrating all three days I spent in Holland.
    I also added photographs for the previous post!


    Enjoy! Hopefully I can write again before I leave for the USA.

    Thanks to you for viewing!

    A little bit off topic (due to the lack of travel on this one), I thought I would write a little bit on one of the rarest cars I ever worked on. This one is pretty much one of a kind, and I bet many of you never knew it even existed!

    In other news, I am departing for the US on Monday!
    Wish me luck with my new life!

    Finally, after almost a month in silence, an update! Yes, I have a girlfriend now, so she has taken her very well-deserved share of time. I have, however, been writing these little vignettes for days, so bear with me! I have not forgotten about you!

    Life is going to get very, very interesting now...

    Dig your site. It's funny but I'm almost your opposite. Met my Spanish wife at Cal Poly SLO back in '98 and four years ago moved to Madrid. Just 6 months ago we moved up to Galicia, outside of La Coruña. León is a pretty cool city too, passed through my first time while driving back from a snowboarding weekend at San Isidro and again while mountain biking the Camino back in July '09. The stoned glass of the cathedral is some of most impressive I've seen.

    Amazing! Thanks for the compliments! I am a big fan of Gothic architecture and I have the feeling that Castile does not get visited enough compared to Barcelona, per say. Oh, if all of amazing culinary treasures were also revealed to more visitors, alas!

    Anyway, straight to the point: I am currently in Wichita, and here is what has happened since Brooklyn!

    Irony.

    I've only recently discovered this community and begun to explore it. Today, I decide I want to spend my lunch hour living vicariously through those who embody the spirits of adventure and freedom embodied by the automobile. And here I find someone posting an update from "The Air Capital City." I worked two jobs for three years to escape Wichita just over a decade ago.

    The grass is always greener, right? Subscribed to your blog, mate. Press on regardless.
