Our first stop was to pick up Quentin. He is my oldest son (almost 8) and lives with his mother in Holland. I travel back every other month to see him. And we always plan some fun things together. This time we wanted to go to the Efteling, a Dutch theme park. We did this before and he really liked it, especially the stay at the Hotel. So this weekend we plan for a similar trip. With Quentin we headed out to grandma Marianne (my mother) to pick up the keys to my brother's place. He offered us to stay at his house as he is on vacation in France. We had a nice home cooked meal at my mother's place. She made some mussels, and Quentin's favorite chicken wings (also one of my favorites). We were beaten from the jetlag, so we headed out early in the evening for some well deserved rest. Tomorrow we are off to Brabant (the south of Holland) to visit the Efteling.
We arrived in Amsterdam a bit later than planned. But travels went smooth. A quick visit to the Noodle Bar before we picked our luggage up from the belt. We had to wait a bit for our Rental to be ready, but it was worth the wait. We got ourselves a nice Ford Focus Cmax which fitted all our luggage nicely.
