So we (Tony and Pras) are finally off on our journey, just finished the leg from LA to Frankfurt, and just starting a leg up to Amsterdam. We decided to skip Brussels based off the reaction of the travel advisor Frau we spoke to at the Frankfurt airport (something like 'Brussels? Why Brussels?'), and it also makes this short trip simpler and easier. I (Tony)'d never flown or slept for 10 hours before but today I did both at the same time, and now it seems like it shouldn't be possible for me to pass out on this train right now, but I still might.
Our Frankfurt experience was pretty brief, but we did eat some wurst und bier so it was authentic I'm sure. Except for maybe the French fries...
...and soon we'll start our Amsterdam experience, with some Heineken out by the windmill in the tulip garden or something.
Our final packing list looks something like this, if you have any ideas about what to do with them, make sure to contact us.
