Amsterdam in a hurry.

It was Friday afternoon. I saw a few ducks in the canal, floating around on the water and I walked down to the bank of the canal and sat down.  I breathed in deeply and as I was taking in that breath the past 3 days of work rushed through my head and I felt […]

Trier, the place I didnt know I needed to see.

I don’t like Durban
