In the airplane on the way...this was my flight path.

I touched down in Amsterdam on December 27th and was met at the airport by Brett, Erin, James & Julie, all who arrived before me.  We then headed to Dusseldorf Germany for the meetup there.  However, being a newbie at this picture taking thing, I left my camera in the car, so I have NO PICTURES until the next morning.  Erin & James have some great ones of our drive there, kidnapping Ket along the way, driving like maniacs on the Autobahn and then meeting everyone in Dusseldorf.  After being up about 32 hours straight though, most of what I remember about Dusseldorf after we left the meetup is just freezing my ass off and ready to collapse! I've never been so cold and tired in my life. 

Most of the pics below were taken on the 28th where we spent the entire day in Germany after leaving Brett's house in Eindhoven, Netherlands that morning.  Germany was absolutely beautiful and I will have to go back again to do it some justice!  Anyway, after leaving Germany that night after dinner, we drove into Strasbourg, France where we spent the night.
