IN TRANSIT - August 19th 2009

Hard to believe that it was almost a year ago that the boys and I boarded a plane to Europe. Rueben was only 7 months old and now he's walking and almost talking! I kept a travel journal with the intention of blogging about each day of our journey. Well, 10 months later and I've finally uploaded my pictures so I can begin to share our travels with you.

It all started with a smooth and uneventful 10 hour flight to Amsterdam. The boys were great throughout the entire flight until we began to land, where Rueben screamed the entire time. Then 2 minutes after landing, Ethan brought up a lovely surprise for the cabin crew to clean up. Customs took 3 hours and the adventure began as we made our way to the train station to catch a train to the town centre. Amid the hub-bub of a metropolitan train station, we managed to get tickets and find the right platform, but due to our rusty navigational skills, we got on the wrong train. With the help of some friendly locals, we got off the train, found the right one, made our way to the Amsterdam central station and arrived safely to the A-Train-hotel at noon.
