July 2017. Just after the 4th, I took a 14-day trip to the Golden State, mostly for the funeral of my younger sister, but also to join my family in dealing with/experiencing her final goodbye.
I took some pictures along the way, and seeing as how my site, “Traveling Down My Inner Ear” is finished, I felt obliged to put them on this site instead.
Part 1: Goodbye Denmark, Hello Amsterdam
That is Denmark below, if you didn’t recognize it.
I felt a bit homesick. Going home to California. Leaving my home in Denmark.
Two sides of the same story, I guess.
The clouds were nice, and the weather too.
KLM had a nice sandwich waiting for me with a small box adorned with chickens.
Note the obvious Dutch Windmill Theme!
Holland on End.
Amsterdam always seems a bit on the largish side. (over 800,000)
I’ve never actually been outside the airport, so I don’t know if it counts, saying that I’ve been there?
At the airport. The blue /white planes in the background belong to KLM.
I’d like to say that these photos have a deeper meaning, but that would be pulling your funny bone. Try to enjoy the view from my vantage point, but don’t worry about not seeing new things, I’m sure there will be something for you in the upcoming chapters!
Next time: Flying over the Atlantic Ocean.
