After arriving in Stockholm on June 24th and spending 2 days taking shots at the Ice Bar and taking a high speed boat tour, I’ve more or less been in Amsterdam ever since my 30th birthday on June 27. The last two weeks have included a two day trip to Nijmegen to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers (best concert I’ve ever seen), Pearl Jam at the Ziggo Dome, Startup Weekend, a day trip to the Hague and Leiden, and a number of days accommodation in Noordwijk at the Flying Pig Beach Hostel (about an hour from Amsterdam).
But I’m about ready to move on. What’s next travel wise?
On Saturday, I’m meeting up with Anna Zalazar and we are heading down to Ghent in Belgium. We’ll spend a few days there before hitting Brussels and Bruges for a day each mid next week. On the 19th of the month, we fly to Barcelona where we’ll spend a few weeks soaking in the rays, eating paella, drinking Sangria, and taking siesta. Then, I fly out to Bali for Startup Abroad in mid August — which should be an awesome awesome trip.
PS: Yes, Europe is expensive and yes my pocketbook is hurting right now.
