Quick trip to Amsterdam
On our recent return trip back to the states, we flew Delta/KLM. Delta had some repairs to their plane while in ATL and we sat in the plane (at the gate) for an hour while they did the repairs and ensuing paperwork. This made our connection in AMS too short to catch our flight to Warsaw.
So...KLM gave us a hotel and full board at the hotel. The lady (she was super nice, I will say) was so accommodating and suggested we go to the hotel, change, shower, etc, if we wanted to, then take the shuttle back to the airport, catch the train and check out downtown. And so we did.
Here are some pictures from that little unexpected adventure. We were dead tired, however, and weren't thinking too well. I didn't even think of looking up a local quilt shop, for which I am a little upset. Only a little, however, because we were in no shape to go on a walk around Amsterdam. If we even sat down for a few minutes, we were falling asleep.
So, let me share part of our little adventure with you.
Graffiti - which I didn't even notice til I looked at the pictures. I was entranced by the buidlings.
And there you have it! It's been a quick trip to the canals/city center of Amsterdam. I do want to go back some time when I'm not struggling with jet lag and missing a night's sleep and spend some time walking around - going to Anne Frank's house and the Jewish center and other very famous places.
I'll be sure to pencil in some time to sneak over to the quilt shops I've heard are there!
In the meantime, don't forget to check out the goodies my sis has for you in the USA. These are some fabric by the piece pieces. If you see something you like, get it. Her stock is mostly "destash" which means she won't have the same thing again!
