Leaving for amsterdam tomorrow

Phew! I’m no longer homeless! I just booked 2 rooms for my friends and I. It’s a 4 star hotel and I got 54% discount for it (booked it via internet). The location is convenient and strategic, as it is located opposite Central station and Dam Square.

Wen Dee, Frank and the rest are back in Sheffield from Amsterdam.

I’m leaving for Amsterdam tomorrow morning, see you guys on Sunday 😀

Amsterdam here I come!

Amsterdam here I come! I just booked my flight and train tickets today. It’s pretty cheap, all together for less than 100 pounds but the problem now is, I don’t have a place to stay. I was supposed to stay with a friend and her family but they couldn’t get a place for me. And to add salt to wound, she told me about it today. My god, I was panicking, 2 days is not enough for to settle everything. And now, I’m homeless in Amsterdam. I couldn’t find a place to stay online. My only solution is to go there and find a place. But it’s hard to find a single room at a cheap price and its peak season now hence most of the places are fully booked.

What’s the worst could happen? I guess it’s just me sleeping on Central train station. Despite the unpleasantness, it might be a good experience, well sort of (I’m just trying to be optimistic). A friend of mine once told me that his friends who went backpacking around Europe slept at parks to save money. However, there was once someone used a knife to cut open their bags and stole their belonging while they were sleeping. Fortunately, they bought insurance for it.
