In a word..nightmare !!! We arrived and they told us they had no record of our reservation, they eventually realised that they had misspelt our name even though we emailed it to them. We were then taken to our room by the young man that was at reception. We asked him where the car park was and he said the street was fine. On asking where the nearest Metro station was he pointed in the direction and said 10 minutes walk and then disappeared. The best was yet to come ! After sleeping on a sloping bed (sore back for the next three days !!) despite the rowdy return of our man from reception and his mates from a night out we went next door to the actual hotel for breakfast. A room full of young women from a hen's night swearing and yelling about their adventures the night before as the manager sat and listened intently. Breakfast wasn't bad, but we ate quickly to make a quick exit. Checked out to find a dog on heat behind the reception counter and the manager, who had also cooked breakfast, gave her another pat. She apologised for the loud behaviour of the women in the breakfast room and we left. When we were looking for accomodation we looked up websites etc. for places we were looking at staying. Bewick Hotel boasted car parking facilities, a bar and restaurant. We didn't see any evidence of any !! The stay here really left a negative impression of the city.

... bit to surprise the lodger and grab a bottle of wine before switching the tv on. However the backpack has been checked in and reality will kick in soon enough of the hugeness of what I'm going to be doing. Countries that I've read about, Indonesia, New Zealand, USA... they're all out there and two sayings come to mind: life is for living and you only live ...

Well I have been back for over a week now. This extraordinary experience is beginning to fade now I am in this new chapter.
I am so grateful and humbled by the whole experience. As I spend Christmas with cherished friends and dear family, I realise just how lucky I am.
The support I have had from really wonderful people who are kind and caring also humbles me. This entry is for them to say a huge THANK YOU.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
SEE YOU NEXT TIME.....;)
... canal areas are beautifully preserved and from what I have seen from the train the countryside although flat looks beautiful. I'll return at some point, preferably in the summer with a tent and camp my way through the country.
Before we knew it three days of lazing around in quaint little bars had quickly passed and it was time to head back up to Amsterdam and onto a plane back to England. This is the point I had been dreading and playing over in ...
