Galway and Amsterdam

Hello! Sorry for the delay, we've been so busy having fun and travelling and haven't had good internet access that we haven't had time to post! Parents, we're alive and healthy, stop worrying! Galway was awesome! It was a small Irish town on the west coast filled with tourists and locals alike, all out to have a good time. We made it onto a tour bus and saw some amazing sights, like the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren hills of limestone; absolutely breathtaking! We took some beautiful photographs of the open farmland and scenery, and even caught a game of Gaelic football. It was a lot like home, being on the west coast ;) We spent a day traveling from Galway via coach to Dublin, plane to Amsterdam, and tram to our hostel, which was kind of sucky, but we made it, and instantly fell in love with the city we affectionately dubbed "The mother of Bellingham"; a laid back city, with great people, that smells like pot...all the time. Over the last two days, we went to the Van Gogh Museum (so cool!) and the Anne Frank House. We walked through the Albert Cuyp Markt and just spent some time chilling out on the grass to catch some rays (of which, Carley got a little too much). We met some fun locals, and we plan to meet up with them later tonight. We've definitely gotten used to the traveler's lifestyle, and are loving our time here!

Tot Ziens,

Nikki and Carley
