In Arnhem with jos

We were looking forward to the meet up in Leiden. Jos sent us a mail to travel together by train. Ok this is nice we will travel together. On the morning of the 14th february we met at the trainstation in Arnhem. Jos figured it all out which train we had to take. So we jumped on the train. It was very vey busy. Strange that there were no alarmbells ringing!!! But these people all went to the "Huishoud beurs" in Amsterdam. Did we really need to go to Amsterdam???? Ok Jos said so, we follow!! Finally we ended up at SCHIPHOL PLAZA! Normaly i enjoy to visit Schiphol, because this means i am going to travel! But Now!!! We had to take another train to Leiden.

Schiphol Plaza??? and not flying????
Ok Jos had his Print from the NS. We got in the train and one station later in Hoofddorp we had to go out again.This train was ending it's journey! Just waiting for another one to stop. Delay about 10 minutes. So the train came by, it seemed that it was stopping, but, he was going faster and faster. We all were confused. Finally the right train arrived. And we went to Leiden at last. We arrived very late, about 11.30! But we had laughed a lot during our trip to leiden.

In Leiden the most people already were waiting. It was nice to see some people who were coming from far, just to be on this meet up. We started to walk, and do some sightseeing. Very nice old buildings! And a lot of bickers!! Anna can tell you more about it!!

The organisation did a very good job! When we arrived at the restaurant where we had the high tea, they send us upstairs and it was wonderful to see what they have arranged. A dish full with delicious sweets!! And ..... A red rose for every one of us, with a card from travbuddy attached to it! They also thougt about the travbuddy's who were planning to visit this meet up, but unfortunately could not make it.  Also Jos was supprised by the organisation with a special certificate. He was the travbuddy in Holland visiting the most Meet ups! And a card for his birthday (sunday is his birthday).

Far too late we went on the train back to Arnhem (we did not matter!) And this time we were home in a short while!! NOT visiting Schiphol, but Utrecht! Thank you For the nice organisation!!
