Total Turnaround

Hello All,

So Paris was wonderful. No complaints. Total hospitality from people I stayed with and I was blessed with beautiful weather.

I am in Amsterdam. My friend was supposed to meet me. Didn't show, I was left wandering around for a few hours like an idiot trying to find him. Turns out his flight is tomorrow, and we even discussed this.

I broke my bank just to get in contact with him and I got an answering machine.

He reserved a hostel for us before the trip, but I decided to stay at a hotel outside Amsterdam which now I realize was a mistake. I just wanted a quiet place to sleep alone, and I didn't want to sleep in a hostel alone. The lady at the airport failed to mention how far it is.

I am going to try and contact the airline to go home early, I just don't have the money to keep tossing around like this. Paying extra to get out of here will be worth it for me. I miss home, I miss being in control.

I will try to see the Anne Frank museum before I leave though.

Sorry, but I am really upset and hurt right now. I planned my trip out to a tee to Paris, and for Amsterdam I placed my trust in someone else thinking my back would be covered and now I am a complete sitting duck and I have learned my lesson the hard way. I usually don't end up this defenseless.

Anyway, that is all for now.

I'm so sorry. Maybe this will turn into a happy mistake and you'll have some grand adventure...?

Hope it gets better soon.

As someone who tends to embark on things with frayed hems, get home safe and sound. Lick your scratches and hopefully you can still grow with this experience.

You live and you learn. No matter what, you have added an adventure to your experience. How many folks where you work (the crap old security guard who lusts after you... do you think HE could even muster the brain power to concieve of going to Giants game, much less a trip abroad??) will be in envy of you and be in jealousy because you said you were going somewhere and somewhere you did go!

Uh, checking out your pics again... you are very hot!! Makes me wonder what is wrong with the men on the West Coast... anywho, travel home safe and enjoy what you can. BE SAFE!! (no, that can't be stressed enough!!)

Big miscommunication but still trying to fix it, i didn't mean to upset her at all, really. I am if not more, upset than she is.

It's tough to give someone the benefit of the doubt, especially when you feel alone in a faraway place. I can't even imagine.

I do hope your friend does something amazing to make up for the no show!

PS - You never know if this turn of events will bring on a serendipitous moment with a stranger. You just never know, Chica! Best wishes and have a safe trip home!

I'm really sorry to hear that things have gotten all out of sorts while you are over there. I once planned a trip to Australia that required the help of someone there who had promised me various things. When they backed out on me it royally screwed things up. Luckil I wasn't already there at the time. I hope things improve and you are able to stay and finish the trip you'd planned.

Bless your heart... I am so so SO sorry...

I SO understand how you are feeling... especially the part about wanting and needing to be in control... and you aren't.

I wish I was able to help you...

Please be safe... I will be glad when you are home. This shouldnt have happened...

*hugs*
