Touch down 0500 hours in Amsterdam after a 23 hour trip. We had a 2 hour stop over in Kuala Lumpur, which was just enough time to get the blood pumping through our legs.


Once we had collected our luggage, we caught the 0644 train to Eindhoven in the south (which cost us 19.80 euro!!) and arrived at 0815. Henny and Riky picked us up not long after, and took us to the village of Someren. After a few hours rest and a huge Dutch breakfast (chocolate on bread.. the way breakfast is meant to be) we went to meet Henny's mum and dad, Aunty Torres & Uncle Jan.

After a lovely afternoon tea we went back to Henny & Riky's (where we are staying) to yet more scrumptious food. Following a huge dinner and dessert we went for a walk with Henny and his dog, Dorus, to see some more of the picturesque village (and to start burning off all the calories!).

After a bit of a chat with the relatives we headed up to bed and tried to sleep off our jet lag. This was easier said than done considering that despite being 1030 at night it was still light.
