Delft - Friday Sept. 14, 2018
Thankfully, since we left Edmonton it has been smooth travelling. Our 9+ hour flight from Seattle to Amsterdam was uneventful. I watched some movies, ate some ok airplane food and tried to sleep. I can never sleep on planes. Of course it’s important to stay hydrated...cheers to the start our vacation!
We arrived in Amsterdam at about 12:45 pm and caught the train to Delft. Our apartment is cute, quirky (there is a striped cow on the way up to our suite) and at the top of about 2 million steep steps. I expect no less from the Netherlands.
We toured the new church (Nieuw Kerk) and walked up the tower (375 steps by my count) for spectacular views of Delft. What else would you do when you are jet lagged by climb more skinny steep steps?! It’s amazing mom and dad like travelling with us! The new church was built in the 1300’s which isn’t THAT new. All the royals are buried here starting with Willem of Orange. Tomorrow we will tour the old church. It was closed for a wedding today.
We poked around Delft had a yummy dinner and are getting ready for bed. We managed to stay up today so hopefully we sleep well.
