dont have much time and I´m sure you´d all rather be at the beach so I´ll keep this short, but basically love holland to bits! the food is fantastic and real, peole are cool, trains are cheap, you can ride everywhere on a bike, dadadada I could go on forever. At the end of the day if you havent been there, put it on your list of things to do and you wont be dissapointed.

thank you so much Reit and Wim for having me and Paul stay for so long, and feeding us so well, we had a great time and I´ll be back for sure! Roel you´re the man! thanks so much for driving us around all the time and sussing out so much stuff. I owe you dude, see you in NZ one day. and to Hermein and the rest of you for all being so nice the whole time I was there, I´ll miss you a lot and can´t wait for next time.

(Sorry Dutchies for my bad spelling and memory when it comes to names and stuff, let me know what mistakes I made please xxx)
