Tour de France Utrecht

A travel blog entry by iacommutersnob on Jul 04, 2015

... I decided not to go out to the airport, I really didn't need to and was tired, so said my goodbyes to him at the apartment. I was really going to miss him, but I was so glad we had this time together, we had so much fun and it's something we'll look back on so happily forever, and I knew too that he was ready to go home. With my free time, I had a bit of a snooze and made some calls to friends back home. When it got later and I still hadn't heard from Mum and Dad, ...
