A Special Trip - part 1

Yesterday my owner and me made a trip to Amsterdam and look who I met there:


Beanie had come all the way from the UK for a short holiday and I was very happy to finally meet him in real life!

Here we are posing together with Andrea. My owner and Andrea also met for the first time outside of the internet, so it was a really cool meeting for us all!

After talking for a bit we ordered lunch.
Hmmm... I'm so not going to eat that! What was my owner thinking when ordering it?

This looks more like it:
onion soup and french bread.

After lunch Beanie let me pick out a present from the treasures he keeps in his backpack. I chose a green lucky coin.

Then we all went for a walk to a bookstore my owner likes to visit when she's in Amsterdam and on our way there we spotted an street organ.

And a mysterious alley!

At the bookstore Beanie got me another present.
Isn't it cool?!

We walked around some more and I almost ran into a tram. We don't have those in Groningen.

Beanie found some statues of lizards before meeting us and he showed them to me.

And next we went on a boat tour through the Amsterdam canals!

Ooh! That looks like a nice trip indeed! So happy that we can see how things were in Amsterdam yesterday. I'm putting the pictures of today in our computer right now and I'll make my post about today! We had such a nice day! We really enjoyed seeing you and Beanie! Big hug for you and C. :-)!
