Thomas and I will be making an unexpected trip to Europe next month. He found out yesterday that he was invited to present his research at a conference in Amsterdam. I'll be going along and we'll extend our stay by a few days to do some sight-seeing. We've barely been to The Netherlands before -- only when we went to the location where Germany, Belgium, and Holland meet and you can stand in three countries at once. I'm not so sure that counts?
In any case, we are doing some last-minute planning. Brian decided to help us out, but he seems to want us to go to the Baltics instead.We are hoping to get some bird-watching in while we're there, even though it won't be prime season. Hopefully we'll have some great pictures to post!
