      Climbing up or down the stairs was the most perilous thing, especially with a backpack and luggage. The shower was in the same little room as the toilet, which made it complicated to wash ourselves. The room was very small and simple, but everything was clean. The good thing is that there are a bunch of good restaurants and bars next door, the flower market is on the next street and the city center and Red Light district are pretty close too.

      ... to goldmember from Austin Powers. I resisted all temptations to buy clog slippers. We made it out alive and got back on the bus and headed to our hotel, or should I say Botel! It's a boat and a hotel, this was cool in concept terrible in execution, I remained optimistic and kept my mothers mantra of only a place to lay your head. I prayed that laying my head here wouldn't result in a body covered in bug bites. A quick refresh and we regrouped to head into town. ...

      ... the meal we were taken to of all things. So I think the whole time I was in the Netherlands I never actually ate a signature meal of the country. After dinner we went on the river cruise, which included unlimited free alcohol (uh-oh) - so naturally with the majority being Aussies we drunk them dry by the end. There were a few speeches which were nice, and our tour "wake up" song was played several times in celebration ...

      Belgium meant three things and three things only; waffles, beer and chocolate. As soon as the train pulled into Antwerp, within 40 seconds we had this mouth-watering delight in our hands. Belgium was set to be brilliant.

      ... We sat with him and his friend paolo for ages an he made me roll a joint which was good. At like 3:30 we left the place and were rolling around in the street and made friends with this guy. At this point deejay swore the guy pricked her with a needle and started freaking out. We were gonna take her back to the hostel but this lady thought we should be safe and go to the hospital so she hustled us into a cab. She was really nice and helpful. The cab ride was really ...

      ... we have noticed since arriving is how steep the stairs/steps are and how narrow the tread is - and Anne Frank's house is no exception. The almost vertical stairs are the steepest we've ever walked on. We got day tickets for a "hop on, hop off" canal trip (€20 each) hoping that this would help give us some perspective on the city. Eventually we found a shop that sold maps in English so that, combined with the canal trip helped immensely. The commentary on the ...
