Mommy and Me Trip

My mom arrived today to start our European adventure. This means I will be taking a three week sabbatical from blogging to immerse myself in the French, German, Swiss, Italian, Austrian, and Czech cultures. In other news, I lost the Powerball bet. My highest score was 9,046... to which Olof stated "that's an excellent score Claire, but you still owe me lunch." Oh well, there are worse things that could happen... like coming home from picking up my mom at the airport to find that my bike was stolen. Arg...!

I cant believe that someone stole your bike. Do you have bike insurance or something?

Holy crap! That is so uncool.

Did you use at least two massive locks? You might want to lock one wheel to the frame and then lock both frame and wheel to what ever metal object you can find near by.

Looking at your other posts it appears you didn't really research your move very carefully. Although, it seems you are settling in a lot better. You may want to look into getting a slingbox and set it up at your parents house so you can stream USA shows to your computer in Amsterdam.

Do you speak any Dutch? Curious to know since you haven't mentioned taking language courses.

It is good to read your blog as I plan on moving to A'dam quite soon.
