    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.

    ... which includes a night staying over. I'm sure Amsterdam is a place that truly comes into its own once the sun goes down.

    One last piece of advice. If you are to try a 'Funny Muffin' from one of the many cafes dotted around, don't do so 15 minutes before your coach ride back to the ferry - just in case the hour-long journey becomes a gruelling two-and-a-half hours long thanks to ...

    ... two guests. We are on the deck now, listening to sheep, goats, and cowbells, and below us are two tiny villages. (The inn is in Galey, should you choose to try to take a peek!) 10/12 Toulouse - we had a wonderful, non-coco puffs breakfast served by Beccs at the Bergerie and then took a leisurely drive on "blue highways" to Toulouse. Drove thru an interesting grotto, but we're to focused on our target to stop. The French countryside was been beautiful....but why do they ...

    ... to?" I ask. She thinks about it for a while trying not to smile, she reluctantly admits she wants me next to her. She is being very cute this morning.

    For a change I manage to sleep on the bus in an upright position with her on my lap. After the first toilet stop I have her laughing a lot, in between the laughing I notice she looks sadder. On the way to Amsterdam she had been telling me all about how badly she can't wait to be home: to see her mum, 'russel' her ...

    ... together for the journey. Forecast was reasonable, not ideal wind direction but nothing too rough and clear skies - no moon this time.

    We headed out about 10 in the evening and after a brief visit from the customs launch we were on our way. The wind was reasonable and the forecast for clear skies was right but it didn't mention the very lumpy, choppy seas which made the journey much less comfortable. A bit of seasickness experienced by ...

    ... holiday in my kind of work is blocking it in your schedule and working around it. Not blocked presumes meetings can be planned there and you're like public possession. For a change real work meetings. Not the 145th board-invented stupid management thing that drains me faster then a Jew empties a wallet and is more useless then obtaining a freezer at the North Pole. Just running on. The weather appears to be great where we're heading. A few days of ...
