I collected him from the train station and we spent the ride talking and talking and talking and talking. It was definitely a blast from the past! It was great to ang out with someone from Home and also to share and compare our experiences travelling. Tim actually speaks German so he has done better than me in that respect!
Saturday was sightseeing, Tim was lucky with the weather, it was gorgeous sunshine so we decided to walk from Museumplein to Leiseplein and then down the Kalverstraat to the Dam.
The best part about all this, apart from a friendly face and a familliar accent, was that we could both apreciate just being tourists and taking in the beauty of the city. It's harder for locals, especially Dutch people who have an understandable aversion to anything remotey touristy... Don't worry gang I have only just got a bike but it's not a Mac!
For Tim it's on to Paris, for me it's on to jobhunting!
