Antwerp the smelly, and Rotterdam the friendly!

sunny 24 °C

Sorry I haven't been on here posting but there's not much to say..

My travel to Antwerp was fine, besides it being really hot and sweaty with all my stuff in tow. Couldn't find the damn hostel because it doesn't have a sign or directions to it on their site, then when I got there it was discusting; gross kitchen, smelled really really bad, you have to buy linens to put over the really dirty beds, it was just nasty. And the staff were alwayss around, but really not much help. Cool. I changed and went out exploring, but it's such a big town I don't think I saw much. Long story short the only thing I took away from Antwerp were bug bites all over me! That are very itchy and annoying and... ya the girl next to me had them too so I'm pretty sure they are bed bugs (good old wikipedia informs me) which is freaking nasty. I've been writing bad reviews for them on all the sites I can so as to prevent more people from having that experience!

Anyways now I'm settled into a very nice hostel in Rotterdam for 3 nights. Yesterday I only went shopping, but all of the store workers were really friendly and all said hi to me and it felt so good to actually have service again! Cool. I met a girl from Kenya last night and 2 guys fom Italy and a guy from New York and we played this traditional Dutch game called Slingo, I think. It was really fun, and Laura (Kenya) and I are gonna go exploring rhe city today!
