Arrived in the Netherlands

July 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Travel

I am currently in Eindhoven, a city in the South-Netherlands. So far it seems alright. Phillips was founded and headquartered here, so there’s an enormous amount of lightbulb-related tourist attractions. They have some sort of art museum focused on artificial light (read: glowy art things), so I’ll probably check that out tomorrow before catching a train to Utrecht.

My stopover in Dublin was nice. I took the bus into the city and ate lunch at the oldest pub in Ireland, which dates from 1198. It was sort of a tourist trap, but the food and Guiness was good. However, the bus back to the airport was kind of slow and I nearly missed my flight to Eindhoven. On the plus side, because I was so late, the Ryanair woman checking me in didn’t bother charging me the 20 euro they usually want for checking a bag.

I’m pretty tired since I lost a big chunk of last night to time zones, but I think I’ll go out at least for a little while and see what Eindhoven is like.

    Hey Brendan,
    Sounds like you had a decent time. Yeay, Ireland! I was there this March and didn’t see this oldest bar ever. I guess I’ll have to go back again. hah.
    Take care,
    p.s: Get some sleep.
