New friends

I met up with some virtual friends yesterday: Kay and her husband Dick are travelling through Europe and are meeting up with several bloggers. Which is a wonderful way to see Europe of course. So, I made my way up to Amsterdam yesterday morning and fortunately recognized them from afar.

We first made our way to the trainstation to validate their traintickets and lock their luggage away: we didn't want to take it with us through town. We then made our way to the restaurant. They had wanted to eat proper Dutch food, so I brought them to Haesje Claes, which turned out to be a lovely restaurant with fantastic food at quite reasonable prizes. Definitely a restaurant to go to again if I'm in the area.

It took us quite a while to decide what to have, since we were too busy chatting about everything and nothing. However we will not talk about horse meat again. I promise! By the time we left the place was really busy, but we had to make our way back to the trainstation to catch the train to Brussels. I was getting off at the airport though, since I was meeting a cousin that afternoon.

A great way to spend a Saturday morning/afternoon!

  4. I had a delightful visit also with Wil who met me at Kinderdijk, and wee had a wonderful time with Gattina, too, as she says here. We also met another blogger friend, Debbie from Las Vegas who is presently living in Brussels.
    HOWever, the blogger we both decided we'd most like to have living in Alberta was you, Mara dear. We had SUCH a good time, and no one else jumped up and down with delight upon seeing us. LOL
    Thank you for trekking to Amsterdam to meet us. Hoping to see you in Canada very soon.
    Luv, Kay and Dick
