When planning our big Europe trip, Amsterdam was one of the first places on my list. Not just because of the canals and windmills, but because I was looking forward to meeting PJ. Pieter Jan is one of my oldest friends on vt and I was excited to meet him at last.
Not only did I enjoy PJ's company but also his wife Swanet. You could not have spent the time with better people! :o)
Our time in Amsterdam was accompanied by rain which could have put a damper on the whole experience but it didn't matter much. We had a fun time anyway :o)
Our whole Europe trip incorporated so many different experiences, cultures and sights.....in fact there was a WoW factor around every corner!...and Amsterdam was no different.
I was really looking forward to seeing the canals in Amsterdam. Yes, we did the red light district and windmills, but the canals for me was the hilight :o) ........
I love this pic! :o) PJ....what a great Kareoke partner!! lol :o)
Amazing what us vt'ers get up to at a vt meet hey ;o)
And speaking of vt meets....everyone knows Pieter Jan is the King of vt meets! .... Oh yes...there are others like Gillybob and ricky52.....and they organise fantastic meets! ......but in my opinion PJ is the VT meet King! He has organised more vt meets than anyone I know on vt and I take my vt thongs off to you Pieter Jan! ;o) .....errrr, vt flip flops that is ;o)
Thank you PJ and your lovely wife Swanet for welcoming us to Amsterdam and for the fun time that we had!! xx
