Hey everyone, hows it going out there ? Well Yes as most you all know I did make it safely and luggage attached. I have been here in amsterdam for only a few days now. Its great, lovin it already. There are 4 Nationalitys represented in my room. A guy from Finland, Germany, Holand on of course our fav the CANADIANS. Lol I heard a joke today about the orgins of " Canada "
Ok so when the peoples of north america wanted to pick a name for there country the desided that it was too hard for them to make this choice. So they desided that they would pick letters out of a hat and see what they came with. So the first guy went and said " C eh ". Next "N eh" and finally "D eh "......lol made me laugh anyways.

Anywho I have posted some pics that you can check out on this portion of my Journy. I think most of you know that I will be heading to Bangkok Thailand On sept 8th. Again just to let everyone know that this ( sept 8th ) is my Birthday !! So happy Birthday to me !
