Three months ago we purchased our Impreza. And now, after many, many hours of preparation we are finally about to start the Amsterdam-Dakar challenge!
Today we did the final preparations. We put stickers on the car, provided to us by company M. de Held & Zonen. Looks really good in our opinion! The rest of the day we used to pack our luggage, do grocery shopping and put everything in the car.

We arrived at 9.20 am, after a very short flight. We fannied around a bit getting the train to the city centre and then the tram out to the area our hotel was based. Oh yes, it was a hotel this time, not a hostel (or a hovel)!! And a fancy hotel it was too. We checked into the Canal Hotel and after climbing 3 flights of stairs found ourselves in a very pretty room indeed. We only had to spot the espresso machine to realise we had outdone ourselves ...
