Prague to Amsterdam: Day 5

By Noah

Horhausen to Amsterdam.

Today would have been just another boring travel day if not for a very rare and strange occurance when we hit the Netherlands. The biggest storm in the history of the Netherlands for the month of July. Cars being pushed along the highway by winds exceeding 150 km/hr, pounding rain making it hard to see, trees toppling, and bikes and umbrellas strewn everywhere in the street. If not for the fear of being hit by a toppled truck on the highway, the storm would have been fun.

A street in Amsterdam with toppled bikes, tree branches, and a tram unable to push through the horrendous torrents.

    I have been catching up on your travels – so many interesting things I have never seen and some that I remember well from trips we have taken. Such a wonderful blog, great job! I want to see the Butterfly Valley beach – did you see butterflies?
    You described some of the most moving things I have ever seen – the Prado, Picasso’s Guernica, beautiful Krakow and Budapest (I will have to go back and go on the night cruise) and sad Auschwitz. That place is indescribable – horrifying, deeply and terribly sad, but so important to experience. Your description of the experience as “the raw reality ” was right on. Bruce has also enjoyed your blog – but he is in Montana right now digging things up. Thank you so much for sharing!
