Day 38: Amsterdam and back to London

semi-overcast 20 °C

Hey all, it's day 38 and our tour has just ended a few hours ago. Quite sad to leave the rest of our new friends, but as we've been reminded, it's best not to be sad that it's over, but happy that it happened. Amsterdam was quite a lot of fun, especially with the help of our good friends hash, marijuana and alcohol, though not all at the same time. We went down to the red light district on our first night and saw some... interesting performances, as well as looking down the various alleys and side streets, seeing exactly the things that Amsterdam is famous for. Our final night of contiki mostly consisted of a canal cruise, an Indonesian/Chinese dinner and then a massive pub crawl. quite a lot of drinking going on that night, had some excellent shots. Might have had a few too many, a bit too fast because i did feel a bit off for a little while, though i also probably shouldn't have started on the strongbow straight after. We all had a long snooze on the bus this morning, since everybody was suffering from a lack of sleep, so we missed quite a bit of the scenery of Belgium. We ended up getting back into London at about 4pm, before saying our goodbyes, and departing. It was quite sad, but the memories of my new friends will stay with me forever I'm sure, and I will always have those memories to share, as well as my mad ramblings on this blog to go by. Next up, Charles will be going home on Friday and i will be setting off to explore England and see more relatives, before heading back to Whitstable to get a job. The blog posts will mostly stop after i arrive back in Whitstable, though i will most likely update every week or so, just so everybody knows i'm alive.
Hope all are well at home

Dale Chapman, signing out.
