Two weeks in the Netherlands

Somehow I knew this would happen, but I was jet lagged for the first five days I was in Europe ... the lesson learned is when flying to a time zone six hours ahead of you, attempt to get some sleep on the plane. ;) The first place I started my experience in Europe was in … Continue reading Two weeks in the Netherlands

Meeting my twin in the Netherlands
