After spending 10 days running at a frantic pace to try and catch everything we wanted and / or needed to see, Alex and I hit a wall – not literally – figuratively.
So, we took a day just for ourselves and stayed in our room. We had a quiet breakfast, watched a bit of television, surfed the net, got caught up on some emails, texted a few friends and updated Alex’s Facebook and my website.
We also did laundry – it is amazing how you can go through underwear that quickly.
Mental note: BRING MORE UNDERWEAR!
It is 8:45 in the morning on Wednesday. I have just had my shower and am about to make a cup of tea. Alex is still sleeping and I will give him another half hour or so.
Today, we head back to Friesland to go and visit where my mom grew up: Sneek
I am very excited to visit Sneek again as I know so little of my mother’s side of the family and I am hoping to see some familiar sights. On my last visit to the Netherlands, Mom showed me the house where she grew up, the school where her father was custodian and a few other sights.
It is going to be another great day.
