finally…we’re booked. we’re off to amsterdam this friday and returning tuesday morning. took me forever to find both accomodations and ferry tix. blasted brits and their bloody bank holidays. actually had to extend the trip a day, thus we’ll need to find a place to crash monday night. after much searching, i found a 5-star in amsterdam(yeah, i said 5-star…only classy joints for fro-boy, though his punk-ass brother and cousin will bring down the class quotient a bit). we’re staying at the hotel okura (yep, you heard right. a japanese hotel in holland) and taking the stena line ferry, with car, from harwich to the hook of holland. we’ll swing by rotterdam to visit cousin nikos and his lovely wife kelly and kids. hey, maybe they’ll be willing to put us up monday night?
