... to Rotterdam. There was also free unlimited Wifi at the Amsterdam airport. I messaged Simon and we were all set and ready to meet around 11:45.
But once again, delays occurred, as the bus driver did not know how to get to the Central Station in Rotterdam, and we had to go to a parking lot in the middle of nowhere for a local Dutch man to get into his car and show the bus driver the way to the station.
