Our flight from Madrid to Amsterdam was at 5 am and the hotel in Madrid woke us up to 3 am. The shuttle would take us to the airport - which was 15 minute drive to the airport - at exactly 4 am, the clerk said over the receiver. Apparently, they don't want us missing our plane.
And the very short flight to Amsterdam was not enough to get rest. Soon we were landing in Schiphol. Four hours of layover. What to do, what to do?
First we took our time in going from we were supposed to go. I stopped many times to take some photos.
And shop for souvenirs. Was surprised to find bulbs on one of the souvenir stores inside.
Almost took one of this wooden tulips home, but settled on wooden clogs magnet.
I spotted a noodle place. If this were Singapore, I'd have a bowl, but no offense, I wouldn't have noodles in Amsterdam.
Instead, we decided to celebrate hubby's b/day by having some breakfast munchies that we have to wait for because they were just being baked. How yummy.
Needless to say, we spent a lot of time in these chairs.
Finally, our plane was ready.
When we took off, this was the sky underneath us. Must have been a lovely day in Amsterdam.
There it was - a lovely time in Europe - my November 10 to 28, 2009 trip. I'm sure it's going to be back to regular programming here on this blog.
Thanks for keeping me company as I walked memory lane with these postings of last year's trip. Now it's back to California postings. Again, thanks.
