Kelana Kemudi- Hari Pertama...

On the way to Holland, we passed by Belgium...




hotel where we stayed for a nite..Rembrandt Square Hotel...but this coffee shop is not the place where you would like to hang out with your friends...it is not the normal coffee shops that we have in Malaysia...hahaha....it is legal to smoke ''dadah'' here.....horrraayyy to mat pitt..

the old windmills were replaced by the new ones...more economical and generate more energy..perhaps..saw numbers of them through out the journeys..


At Paris Nord train station..where our journeys took off.....

London St- Pancras International Station- taking Eurostar to our next stop, Paris in order to pick up our rental car for the whole trips...

5.00 am- Everyone was so fresh and excited..waiting for National Express at Southampton University....

Our first day was a bit tiring. As early as 4.30 am we had to take bus from Soton to London. Then we took Eurostar train crossing the English Canal to Paris. From Paris, it took us almost 6 hours drive to reach the Nederlands...we arrived in Amsterdam approximately 7 pm.

At nite, we took the chances to wander around and visited the infamous Red Light District..a bit similar to Patpong, Bangkok....shocking experience indeed..though in my personal experience, Bangkok is more exhilarating..hahahaha....Amsterdam would be the same like other cities in the world if it not for those coffee shops..canals and freedom of expression....
