A Travellerspoint blog

It's been a while...

I'm sorry, but I promise I will get better

View Homeless & Alkmaar & Class trip to the Hague & Day trip to Amsterdam & To Holland on erika.w's travel map.

I have been busy with school and getting used to life over here. I know that is no excuse, especially to the "blogmaster," Phil, Sr., but I will try to get better, now that I finally have my classes finalized and know my way around the city.

As penance, here are links to my photo albums on facebook. (I have a limited number of pictures I can upload directly to this site, so you will have to do a little more clicking if you want to see more.)

My first few days:

Pictures from a class fieldtrip to The Hague, the center for international peace and justice

Some pictures from the weeks of the Dutch Language and Culture course I took in Utrecht

Alkmaar, a small town in the North, and a Contemporary Art Museum in Amsterdam

My unfinished documentation of the different ways the Dutch ride bikes

My visits to Southern Netherlands (Maastricht) and Brussels

The pictures of the town I am staying in

I went to see the queen ride in a carriage to the Opening of Parliament

Bike rides to the areas around Leiden with Paul and my new friend Jessica

More real information and updates will follow soon, I promise. Hope this satiates your burning desire to know more about my life.

In brief, I am doing quite well. I like my classes, I'm keeping up with my homework, I am getting used to the weather although I sometimes still stubbornly wear flip flops, I love riding my bike even though the back wheel is a little crooked, I am in the process of planning big trips to other countries, and I am planning on going to Oktoberfest this weekend.
